Hair in The Sims 4 is considered a downgrade in comparison to previous iterations of the Sims franchise. While hair in The Sims 2 had animation to it, this feature was stripped from Sims 3, and left out again from Sims 4. There was briefly a rumour that Sims 4 would have animated hair and hair that grew over time, but this proved to be an error in translation.[1]

As far as moving hair goes, that would require a lot of animations work and would actually affect game performance. We would also need to add more physics into the game just to support the movement of hair. We know this is something people do want, but we just don’t have the resources available to make it happen with The Sims 4. --SimGuruGrant[2]

Hair ColorsEdit

There are a total of 18 hair colors in The Sims 4.

Children only have access to nine of the 18 colours, [Auburn, Black, Blonde, Brown, DarkBrown, DirtyBlonde, Orange, Platinum and Red] presumably because it is assumed that children shouldn't be dying their hair unnatural colours, and would not naturally have the salt and pepper styles.
