Possibly the most popular custom content searched for is sims 4 cc hair especially in the maxis match category because the hairs in the game are good, but none of them are great. A new hairstyle can completely change the look of your sims and give them a whole new vibe.
Since the hairs that we have in the game (especially if you only have the base game) are extremely basic and can take time to keep up with the trends using custom content hair is the key to having beautiful sims.
There are two types of sims 4 cc hair in the game, one is Alpha CC which takes more of a Sims 3 style and the other is Maxis Match CC which is more of the vibe of The Sims 4 in this article we’ll focus mostly on Maxis Match.

Feminine Sims 4 CC Hair Options
The first hair on our ultimate list is this gorgeous big curly hair with such fun twist pieces at the front. This hair is such a beautiful loose curl with a really cute way to frame the face that you just don’t see with many of the hairs in the game.
In the front of this hairstyle you’re going to find two adorable twists that are started and ended with little beads that hold it in place. These twists allow your sims to show off their ears which makes room for fun custom hoop earrings which is amazing!
If you want your sims to have perfectly straight hair but don’t want it to be boring, you should definitely look into this super fun Charlotte hair. This hair has both sides of the hair tucked behind the ear and behind the back, showing off your sim’s style.
You can even imagine wearing this one as a gorgeous wedding hair option with a veil added on top. Somehow this super simple hair feels super fancy.
When you’re trying to find awesome everyday hairs for your sims you’ll want to look into Raven. This hair is a great center part hair with a slight wave that just feels like something simple your sims can wear daily.
The best part about this hair is the varying layers that add texture and style and really make it seem realistic. We all know that custom content creators do it better than EA and Raven is living proof.
Let’s continue to fill that mods folder with fun hairstyles! This space bun hairstyle is super fun, mostly because it isn’t perfect. Sometimes I want my custom hair mods to be a little messier so they feel more realistic.
This hair has a slight center part where you have bang pieces going back toward your sim’s ears. Then the hair is pulled back into a space bun on either side of the head with pieces coming out in a super natural way.
Adding accessories is the best way to make a hairstyle look more fun and more interesting than many of the boring EA hairs. This hair has half of the hair up and pulled back with the bow and the rest of the hair drapes down the back in a simple straight look with two pieces framing the face as bangs.
The best part about this hair is that its super versatile! The bow accessory doesn’t have to be added as its actually in the hats category so you can find it separate and wear this hair however you like.
Honestly, I’ve always been jealous of anyone who has naturally curly hair and the only way I can fake that I have curly hair is to add it to the sims. There are dozens of curly hair cc options in my mods folder!
This hair is so much fun because it has so much volume and looks so large and gorgeous. There are a few pieces of curly hair that are going right over your sim’s forehead giving them a beautiful bang too.
The Kelani Braids Set is a beautiful braided hairstyle that starts with braids right on the head that go down to braids down the back. This braid set is awesome because it is made perfectly for both masculine and feminine sims and looks amazing on both!
The Audrey Hair is a gorgeous option for a shorter hair for your sims as it comes right below your sim’s jaw line. The hair is slightly wavy and has a multi-dimensional colour making it super interesting and since this is a shorter hair it really gives you the option to put a necklace on your sim as a statement piece.
The Bluebell Hair V2 has so much going on and is just so incredibly detailed. The hair starts at the front of the head where there are two french braids going back toward the back of the head and eventually going into two large curly poofs. The front of the hair has some face framing pieces and completely shows off your sim’s ears!
Most of my favourite sims 4 cc hairs definitely have some kind of hair accessories attached to them and this Daisy Hair has a beautiful simple headband on it. The base of the hair is in a nice wave with pieces tucked behind the ear allowing you to show off some great earrings!
There is something so special about the braid in this Gigi Hair that has a braided pony tail coming right out of the top of your sim’s hair. This one is a great choice for a formal or a party look and really makes me smile.
Next up on the list is the Imani Hair that is an adorable up do look with bangs and would be an incredible at home hairstyle and really reminds me of one from Laundry Day Stuff. This is a great choice for hot weather outfits but can even be dressed up as a formal look if you work it correctly.
The Claire Sims 4 CC Hair has so many fun pieces to it. First off, all the styles are a fun ombre look that goes from one colour to another. It has the hair in two adorable pig tails that look super sweet and would be awesome for a teenager and the cutest part of this hair is the hair accessory ribbons that come out of each side of the pigtails.
The First Kiss hair is a gorgeous curly bun for your sims and would work incredibly well as a wedding hairstyle. It has a bunch of twists that all come to the back of the head in a beautiful bun and has two pieces of hair on either side of the head to frame the face. This one looks awesome with a sun hat, too!
The Lennon Hairstyle is a great one for showing off the entirety of your sim’s face. There are two side braids that work from above the ear to the back of the head where they go into a beautiful bun. The rest of the hair is down under the braids and hanging out on the sim’s shoulders. This braided hairstyle is such a sweet option, especially for teens.
Our next option for sims 4 cc hair is the Skye Hair that is a great option for a curly hair option. This hair has a side part where the root is a little darker than the rest and the curls cascade down both sides of your sim’s face.
Next up on the list is the Tyler Hair that starts off with a gorgeous curly hair base where the top is pulled into a bun and the rest is pulled into a beautiful loose pony tail with a gorgeous scrunchie. There are tons of pieces hanging down in the front showing off the curl and letting you really enjoy the look.
The Thrive Braids are a really gorgeous option for textured hair and is nothing like what we have in the game. This hair has gorgeous long braids that go past your sim’s hips and have two face framing pieces in the front that have beads at the end which is super popular IRL but doesn’t exist in The Sims 4.
There is something so beautiful about gorgeous face framing hair pieces and this Monet Hair is a perfect version of this. The bulk of the hair is tucked behind the sim’s ears with one side being pushed behind the back and the other in the front of the chest. You can definitely show off some gorgeous earrings with this!
This Amidala Hair is a great way to bring Star Wars into your game, without doing something silly like making Journey to Batuu. The hair is inspired by Padme so you can now enjoy your favourite Star Wars characters in the game without having to visit a whole world dedicated to them.
Are you looking for a gorgeous short hair for your sims? The Lucy Hair is a perfect choice as a just below the ears look that isn’t too put together. There really is charm in the messier pieces on this list, making them seem super real!
There is so much volume in the braid of this Belina Hair you absolutely need this one. The braid starts at the top of the head with a cute pony tail in a matching colour to the one at the bottom and the braid is super thick making your sim’s hair look really thick and beautiful. There are framing pieces at the front too and give you perfect access to show off you sim’s ears!
The Bianca Hair is a really gorgeous braid to dread look that you’ll absolutely love to have in your mods folder forever. This hair starts at the top of the head with your sim’s edges laid and the hair in small braids featuring cute cuffs that are also in the bottom half of the hair which is dreads with so much detail.
This Lexi Sims 4 CC Hair is definitely an amazing option for a wedding hairstyle as either a wedding guest or a bride to be. It has a gorgeous braid going around like a crown on their head and their bangs draping down and framing the face. It really gives you the opportunity to show off detail on your favourite custom content top and show off some gorgeous earrings!
The Fuchsia Hair is a great textured hair option that has braids that go back to the back of the head and into a large poof at the back. The braids are extremely well done and show dimension with their detail and the baby hairs are done so gorgeously. This one looks really great in non-natural colours too!
The next thing to add to your sims 4 cc hair folder is the fox hair V2 which has some really fun buns on either side of the sim’s head. There is a straight across line in the back making it look extremely neat with the rest of the hair being wavy and cascading down your sim’s back.
The Dolores Up-do is one of the most beautiful bun hairstyles on this list and the curls are just so pretty. This hairstyle has a giant bow in the middle giving you added fun and really lets you play with style. There are so many hairs framing the face both as edges and dangling pieces to frame the face.
There aren’t a ton of two-tone hairstyles in the game and this Paris Hair shows off the super popular money piece hairstyle that’s in right now. This hair has a simple middle part with hairs being in a simple curl with one side pushed behind the back and the front pieces of hair being a way lighter tone than the rest.
The Fiona Hair is an absolutely gorgeous option to add more curly hair cc to your game. This hair has some nice curtain bangs happening and then the hair goes down and flows down behind your sims back and on the one side of their chest. This hair feels like it would be perfect for the cottage core sims custom content of your dreams!
If you’re looking for a really cool hairstyle that would be worn by a sim who loves roller derby, the rock-a-bye bangs hair is the one for you. This hair has a short straight across bang with no dimension to the hairs making it a super blunt and interesting look. The hair is pulled back behind the sim’s ears and it just looks so cool, especially when paired with some custom tattoos or really cool earrings.
There is no better hair for a rich suburban mom than the June Hair. This just looks like something you’d see in a rich private school drop off line in the morning and that makes me happy, imagine Nancy Landgraab in this and you’ll see my vision!
There is nothing cuter to me than a good braided hairstyle and the Sadie Hair is a perfect option for me. This hair has a gorgeous bow at the end of the braid for added flair and it frames the face in a really beautiful way.
My favourite thing about this hair is that it isn’t perfect, there are pieces that are a bit looser and the braid doesn’t look like it can’t move, making it feel much more realistic.
The Veah Hair is a gorgeous new mesh that has your sim’s hair in a high pony tail with the hair cascading down on both sides of the head. The hair isn’t super long and it comes down in the pony tail right below your sim’s ears which are also showing so you can wear some beautiful earrings.
The next hair on the list of sims 4 cc hair is the Chloe hair which is a slicked back straight hairstyle that is entirely put behind your sim’s back.
The best thing about this is that it comes in two versions, one with a hair bow accessory and one without giving you options. It’s fun to have your sim have the hair bow for their everyday outfit that they wear out of the house and one without the hair bow when they are hanging out at home.
The Janette Hair is an incredible option for an afro hairstyle, especially since the one in the base game that EA created is awful. This is literally the perfect choice and is super interesting because it isn’t just perfectly round on the head and has more volume on one side which is beautiful.
Next up on the list is the Venus Hair which is a beautiful side bun that is great for sims with naturally straight hair. The hair has a side part with all of the hair flowing to one side of the head either in front of behind the head. The bun is nice a small right under the jawline which is something we definitely don’t have in game and is an interesting option.
There are so few textured hairs in the game that this Bren Hair is a perfect option for your collection of sims 4 cc hair. This braided look is so gorgeously designed with so many beautiful details including edges looking amazing and the braids having so much dimension!
We are definitely lacking in textured hair styles, especially if you only have the base game, so the Nyla Hair is a welcome addition to my mods folder. This hair has some gorgeous braids coming out of a slightly side part with one side going down in front of the shoulder and the other in the back, there are also gorgeous edges laid that look so good on sims!
Next up is the Lucy Hair that comes in all eighteen colours you’d expect and is a beautiful messy bun. This hair has some really long face framing pieces that make it look really great and let it be more interesting than just a regular bun. You can feature some great earrings since the shows off the ears nicely!
Our next hair is the Eris Hair which is a gorgeous shoulder length hair that allows your sims to show off their favourite pair of custom earrings. Being tucked behind the ear is such a fun, simple detail and just makes the pretty simple hair look really gorgeous.
Next up on this list of sims 4 cc hair is the Rowan Hair V2 which is a hairstyle we definitely don’t have in the game. This one is really nice because it’s super short with the hair coming down just below the ears. The style is half up with a big side swept bang which gives it such a good look and the more fashion colours like blue and pink look amazing with this one. It looks especially good on a sim who has a few custom tattoos!
Next up is the Tulip Hair which is a great everyday hair for your sims, especially teenagers! This hair has as bit of a sassy side bang while showing off the ears just enough to have a dangly earring. This tulip hair looks awesome and has a way of being super sweet but also a little bit sassy.
The next on our list of sims 4 cc hair is the Marci Hair which is a medium length half up hairstyle. This hair has bangs that are swept to the side to frame the face and let you show off your sims favourite earrings. The hair is great for a nice hot weather outfit or to wear with your favourite pair of overalls.
The Kelly Hair is one of the quirkiest ones on this list. With a pony tail and side bangs it’s an interesting hair that can be used for all sorts of characters. I would love to use this hair for an occult sim, maybe a spell caster or a vampire. It really makes me want to play with one of the occult game packs.
The Valentina Hair has so much going on and is just so gorgeous. This hair starts with a set of beautiful side swept bangs that show off a nice triangle of the sims forehead and right behind the bangs there are braids on either side moving back to the back of the head. There are beautiful curls going down on the sim’s shoulder and it looks so adorable with a nice summer dress!
Having a hair of braided pig tails is a great simple option for your sim’s hair and this Mona Hair is a great choice. This hair is actually a re-do of a braided pigtail look from The Sims 4: Snowy Escape but that hair had questionable bangs added to it and didn’t work for many sims so this one is 100x cuter for your next snowboarding trip.
The next hair on our list is the Havana Hair that is a great simple hair option. This hair has a simple look at the top and goes down into some loose curls at the bottom. It shows off one ear giving more dimension to the hairstyle and lets you show off a fun earring.
There are so many dimensions to the Eleanor Hair you just can’t stop looking at it. This hair starts off with a set of dreads that are in a high pony tail which is a cute look on its own but there are a set of dreads that go across the face acting as a bang and has some beautiful cuffs on the bang which is beautiful.
There are also some really gorgeous edges laid down on the face and really just makes me happy. This hair is perfect for your sims and really lets you show off their custom earrings.
There is something so fun about this Miranda Hair that has two small space buns at the top of the head with shoulder length hair and small pieces framing the face. This trendy hairstyle is awesome because it makes your sim look super put together and can be worn with beautiful custom earrings.
The Roxy Hair is a great option for a unique pony tail that has a ton of hair on top of the head as a chunky bang with a gorgeous pony tail to finish it off. The bangs are doing a great job of framing the face of the sim while also being very thick and making it look great!
The Susan hair is a beautiful half-up half down long hair. The length is gorgeous and the waves on the bottom half look great. Plus, those bangs? Perfect.
The Susan hair would look really great on any aged sim, making it extremely versatile. The bangs are adorable since they aren’t just straight across and it lets you have a small gap in the middle so you can see a bit of forehead. Plus, you can see the ears to allow for some gorgeous earrings.
The Azure hair features something I love in The Sims 4, headbands! I love hairs that feature accessories because it can add a ton of personality to your characters. This hair also allows you to add some beautiful custom earrings since you can see their ears!
One of my favourite things about this Karina Hair is that it features a bandana accessory which makes it so much fun. This is a great way to get a hat into the game without using some of the very weird ones that EA has created over the years.
There is something so gorgeous about dreadlocks and you can make really beautiful sims with this Jade Hair. This set of dreadlocks features a set of simple silver cuffs that add some extra fun and can be dressed up or down depending on what you want your sim to look like.
The clouds hair is a really beautiful and versatile one that can be worn on completely different sims. I can totally see this on a sim who is totally cool with custom tattoos and piercings but also worn by a sim who loves their cats and wants to spend their time reading a book, definitely a good one to add to your game.
Next up is the Adria Hair which has a gorgeous shoulder length, half up-half down look. The design of this one is absolutely beautiful and the details are so strong. You can really see the love put into this and there are some face framing hairs coming down that just look awesome.
The next item up on our list of The Sims 4 CC hair is the Ellie Hair which is shorter and absolutely beautiful. This hair features some the top part of your sims’ hair being pulled back to show off the ears making it a great option for showing of custom earrings.
There are also gorgeous hairs pulled out to really help frame your sim’s face which is a beautiful feature that looks amazing on all sims.
Since there really aren’t a ton of great textured hairstyles in the game we need to find some amazing custom content hair for this. The Twisted Bun V2 is a really amazing choice for when you want your sims to have a more casual look.
These braids are done so well and have such great detail work and I love this hairstyle for a sim who is young, teen or young adult, and is in high school or university. Focusing on their studies and looking good doing it!
This cheerleader hairstyle is a very great option for a super voluminous up do you can wear as an every day look or use a custom content accessory for the hair to make it fancier for a formal look.
The back of this hair drapes down to the middle of your sim’s back and has so much volume it just feels super beautiful and gives you a great opportunity for adding some gorgeous earrings since the hair is entirely pulled back to show your sim’s ears.
We can’t just have long and feminine hairstyles on this list, of course. Masculine sims deserve to have a bit of love too! These hairs are great because they cover all sorts of more simple hairstyles that will look great on all your favourite sims.
The Aaron Hair is a great option for male sims who wish to have longer hair and want it to be really simple and is one of the best male long hairs I’ve seen out there. It has one side behind the sim’s ear and shows off most of their face and drapes down in a very calm way.
The Ravi Hair is such a good medium length option for your male sims, this hair is awesome with tons of dimension and a bunch of volume at the top. This is a great option for female sims too if you want them to have a fun shorter option!
These Bryson Braids are so gorgeous for your favourite males sims. These come right above your sim’s shoulders with different heights of braids to give it a super interesting look.
The Carmine Male Hair is a great option for your favourite male sim and is a nice swooped back hair for your males sims. There is a lot of dimension and pieces coming off the head making it feel super real!
There are so few good male hairstyles in the base game of The Sims 4 and this Lorenzo Hair will help to fill that gap. This hair is the perfect level of messy that just makes the sim look so endearing and makes you want to give them the best life!
Sims 4 CC Hair Options for Children
We obviously can’t just talk about adults for these hair options, absolutely not! We have to talk about children and toddlers too just to make sure that everyone has something cute to wear on their head with their favourite outfits. Add some fun kid’s accessories and your sims are bound to be the cutest one at school!
The first hair on our list is a gorgeous swooped back short hair. This hair is very mature and could be something that you keep your sim wearing as they age.
Just imagine this hair on an adult, looks perfect, right? It’s a great professional hairstyle for adults and an adorable mature hairstyle for children.
The banging bangs hair is a fun one that puts your sim’s bangs on display, front and center. These bangs are fun with a bit of a messy straight across look where the hairs are in small sections.
The hair has some face framing pieces that go in front of your sim’s ears but shows off their ears allowing them to wear fun earrings which is awesome. The rest of the hair is long and wavy!
Jordan is a great textured curly hair for sim’s who wish to have shorter hair. This hairstyle is great because it has shaved sides with curly hair on top that has some fun texture and even a couple loose pieces that go in front of the face.
This hair looks great and makes your sim’s gain two inches in height too!
If you’re a huge fan of Wednesday Addams you need to add this hair to your sim’s game. This hair came out in a series on TSR with a bunch of gothic themed items and this split dye hair is so great.
The fun thing about this is that you can use this hair in many ways, there is a not split dyed option, and you can make either of the sides whatever colour you want including vivid colours like blues and pinks.
The next hairstyle on our list is this super fun Marcel hair with side swooped dreads. This hairstyle has shaved sides with all of the hair being parted hard to one side.
The individual dreads have tons of texture and even has detailing around the hairline to make it look so much more realistic. This is such a good style for your sims and a must-have in your game, promise!
If you want a hairstyle that has a lot going on, you may want to try out this honey bun hairstyle. This one has a bun, braids and bangs all with a lot happening which is gorgeous.
We start at the front with a set of bangs that cover the forehead and from there we have half the hair going up into a large volume-filled bun and the rest of the hair going down.
There are braids too going from the front of the head to the back and then into the front of the hair going down on the chest.
Adding accessories to simple hairstyles is such a great way to bring them to the next level. This hairstyle starts with hair that is tucked behind the ears and pushed behind the sim’s back with a small piece that goes in front of the face.
The accessory for this style is a gorgeous pearl headband with large and small pearls alternating across the head. These are so much fun and really make your sims look fancy!
If you’re looking for a perfect formal look for your sims this high pony tail braided look is the one. This looks so incredible with any formal look for your kids but can also be worn with a more casual style.
The braid is done really well too with tons of texture and it looks super realistic. You can add fun necklaces and earrings to the look and really bring it all together.
What do we love? Volume! Where do we love it? In our hair!
This hairstyle has so much volume and honestly wouldn’t be achievable but 99.9% of children because most kids (and most adults) don’t have that much hair.
This style has your sim’s hair in a high pony tail with two face framing pieces and much of it behind the sim except for one small section. You can wear this with just about any outfit and even add some fun earrings!
This next Mildred hair is available for both your children and toddlers which is fun if you want them to match one another. The hair has your sim’s textured curls going up on top of their head with tons of volume and curls to frame the face for the bangs which is gorgeous.
The winner of this one is definitely the ribbon around the head with a beautiful bow on top of the head. Accessories are the key to a beautiful style!
Toddlers really don’t have enough hair options in The Sims 4, this is because they weren’t originally in the base game and the sims team doesn’t make enough toddlers hairs now. It’s kinda sad and very annoying but thankfully us simmers can add mods and custom content to our games to have so many beautiful hair options for toddlers!
The first hair on our list is this gorgeous up-do for toddlers that just makes me smile when I see it. It looks like the perfect hairstyle that a toddler would wear if they were going to their first dance class.
Just imagine a toddler in The Sims 4 doing their little bent over bouncy dance with this hair, isn’t it the cutest?
This hairstyle has all of the hair in a bun on top of your sim’s head except for a set of bangs that go from the center to either side of your sim’s head in a very adorable way. A must-have in my game!
There is something so impressive to me about creators who are able to add so much texture and detail to their hairstyles and this one really impresses me.
This hairstyle has a bunch of natural curly hair pulled up into a beautiful bun on top of your sim’s head with so much volume. The hair is super versatile and has so much potential for both formal looks and everyday styles.
There isn’t much that I love more than hair accessories for my sims because they are just so cute and add so much to the custom look.
This Sims 4 CC Hair has your sim’s with a center part with their bangs framing their face and the rest of their hair being beautifully curly behind your sim’s body. A must-have for me just because of the adorable bow that brings it all together!
When I was a child I was always so jealous of the kids who had moms who could braid hair since I definitely didn’t have one of those moms. When my friends would show up with beautiful braids I’d just look at them longingly and then be sad.
These are the kinds of braids that would’ve made me jealous when I was a child. These dutch braids are absolutely gorgeous with them starting in the middle of the head as a center part and going toward the back near the ears.
They lay on the chest in a super cute way, and they leave tons of exposure of the ears letting you add custom earrings to the look too!
For some reason putting a toddler’s hair into a bun just seems so mature and grown up compared to many other toddler hairstyles.
This up-do is so beautifully made with tons of volume and texture especially in the actual bun. It feels like a perfect play-date hairstyle or something you’d wear to dance around your house!
Since we didn’t have toddlers in the base game originally we really don’t have many good textured hair options for them at all, and the ones we do are super lack-luster.
This hair is super sweet with a center part and the hair ending just below the ear, with tons of volume in such a gorgeous way. You can even get a fun accessory headband too!
When I was a kid I feel like everyone went through a phase of giving their kids a mohawk, it just feels like a rite of passage for many little ones.
This wavy hair mohawk is a really good option for your sims because it’s adorable and has some fun details. The sides are shaved and all of their hair is on top of the head and going toward their eyebrows.
Just imagine this little cutie playing with their toys, it’s pretty cute right?
The next hair on our list is an absolutely gorgeous textured hairstyle with so much detail that just brings it all together. This hairstyle has some gorgeous dreads that are braided together in rows going toward the back of the head where they are let loose.
The details on this one are great, and it looks so good on so many sims!
The next two hairstyles on this list are pretty similar but the differences make it so you need to see them both. This first one is so much fun with two buns on either side of the head and some gorgeous straight across bangs.
The fun thing about these buns is that the small buns look like little hearts which genuinely just makes me smile. How cute is this? It makes a good look to wear to a custom content filled wedding!
Our next hairstyle is this adorable double bun up-do for your adorable toddlers. This hairstyle starts with a staple look in every toddler’s life, straight bangs!
I’m pretty sure it’s a universal experience for most of us that we had straight bangs before the age of five, right? At least I did!
The rest of your sim’s hair has a center part that is in two small messy buns on either side of the head. This is definitely an adorable everyday hairstyle for your little ones.
We definitely couldn’t make this list without including this little cutie. This hairstyle is so adorable and is something I would love to wear every single day and I’m a fully grown adult human.
This hairstyle is so much fun and even has a really cute bow accessory that changes colour to have a great constrast with different hair colours which just adds to the adorable levels we’re already experiencing.
Final Thoughts on Sims 4 CC Hair
If someone were to ask where to start with custom content I would genuinely tell them to start with sims 4 cc hair because it really changes how your sims look. Changing your sim’s hairstyle can make their outfit feel completely different and help you create the most beautiful characters. Happy Playing!
