Regardless of which stage of life they’re in, every kid deserves to feel confident in their hairstyle. And no, we’re not talking about that at-home bowl cut their mom gave them in the kitchen, something they’ll look back on their school pictures and feel proud that they had a nice head of hair.
Unfortunately, The Sims 4 isn’t too kind to kid’s hair. But, fortunately, we have endless options for custom content to spice up their look and make them the most popular kid in their class.
If you’re looking for a new look for the kids in your household, then you’ll love these top 15 best Sims 4 kids hair custom content!

Best Sims 4 Kids Hair CC
18. Trisha Tresses by savvysweet
This hairstyle is great for toddler and child Sims who need more curly, textured hair. Trisha Tresses is an up-do for kids that is seriously curly, with a cute bow in the middle of the ponytail.
Hair in the base game isn’t as diversified as one would hope, so this CC is a great addition for those who want more representation of all types of hair.
There is also an adult version of this hairstyle, as well, and all versions are hat compatible.
Trisha Tresses CC also comes in all of the EA swatches, so you can color this hairstyle in blacks, reds, blondes, and more vibrant options, too!
17. Naevys-Sims x Notdaniella Collab
This CC pack is a bit different since its’ files are split into two files and features adult hair converted for kids; one for toddlers and one for older kids.
The five hairstyles featured in this collection are called Brianna Hair, Cherry Picked Ponytail, Brooke hair, Gwen hair, and Cloe hair.
Most styles come with 18 EA swatches, while the Cloe hair only comes with 16. The Brianna and Cloe hair are also hat compatible. This set is great for kid Sims of all hair types, as it features wavy, curly, and straight textures.
16. Rowan Hair
This is another converted hairstyle, but one that is simple and a staple for players who love having kid Sims. The Rowan Hair is a simple shoulder-length hairstyle that has side fringe and slightly messy bangs.
Kids are lively and love to be active, so this hairstyle captures the low maintenance of kid’s hair.
This CC comes in the standard 15 color options featured in EA’s base game, so while there aren’t any crazy vibrant colors to choose from, really, this simple haircut is a great option for the simple reality of what kids’ hair is actually like.
15. SIVIR Hair Toddler & Kid Edition
For a simple hairstyle that’s cute enough to make the girliest of your children happy with how they look, SIVIR Hair Toddler & Kid Edition is a great way to go. They get to have some length to their hair for starters, which can be something rare in children’s hairstyles.
On top of that, braids are a fun, and easy style for kids to rock, and this piece of custom content comes with two of them- one on each side of the head.
This style is best for girls that like to wear skirts and dresses to school. It has enough detail to make it stand out from a lot of the other girls’ hairstyles out there but keeps it appropriate enough for the little ones to wear.
It’s also hat compatible, and there’s an adult version of the same style so you can have a mommy-daughter matching moment!
14. Lily Hair
Bangs and braids- two staples for popular hairstyles that kids are always sure to love. Luckily enough, Lily Hair is a combination of both of those things, so if that’s what you’re looking for to complete your kids’ outfit, this is the way to go.
This hairstyle is only for toddlers, so, unfortunately, the older kids in your household won’t be able to wear this style as they grow older.
It also isn’t hat compatible, so if you want to make an outfit with a cute headband, you might want another option. But, for their go-to playtime style, this hair is a great fit.
13. Audrey Hair
Some parents might not allow their kids to have colored hair, but in The Sims, anything’s possible! If you’re looking to add a pop of color to your child’s head, the Audrey Hair is a great way to let them experiment with hair dye and have a beautiful ombre look.
Short and sweet, a combination of blue and pink that resembles cotton candy, and an adorable headband tied at the top makes for one of the cutest styles for your younger Sims.
And if you thought the pink and blue wasn’t exactly what you had in mind when you said you wanted your kids to have colored hair, this custom content comes in 32 swatches, so you’re sure to find a look that suits your needs.
12. Jess Hair
One of the best things about Jess Hair is the fact that you’re not just getting one style for your kids to experiment, you’re getting four!
Yes, a hair pack for kids, exactly what you need, especially if you’re having trouble finding a style that fits just right with the outfit you’re trying to create.
Each style has the same general concept of keeping two braids at the front extending to the back of the hair, eventually fading into some variation of a tied-back style.
With options including two high buns to long pigtails that reach their collar bone, you can either find their signature length and style or change it up depending on their (and your) mood. These hairstyles are also hat compatible and come in 18 swatches.
11. Daya Hair
When you say length, you mean length. Not just a style that goes a little below your kids’ shoulders, you want your kids’ hair to be something that Rapunzel would be envious of.
For some of the longest hair you can give to your younger Sims, Daya Hair is a great option. Not only is the hair long, but it doesn’t sacrifice texture with its smooth waves.
Another plus to the Daya Hair custom content is that you can choose whether or not you want to let your kids dye the ends of their hair.
Subtle pastels are perfect colors for kids, which is exactly what you’ll find when you style an outfit around this look!
10. Ine’s Hair
Sometimes, you need an option for kids’ hair that’s appropriate for a formal event.
Sure, pigtails are cute, but they need to look their best in front of the grandparents! For those occasions, something like Ine’s Hair is a great choice.
It’s a subtle option for their hair kept down, with the addition of bangs and a little hair tucked back behind their ear.
What’s great about this hairstyle is that there’s some layering to the length. So, even though the overall hair is a bit shorter than some we’ve seen on this list, there’s enough definition to make it stand out.
9. Aurora Hair for Kids
As a kid, and as an adult for that matter, one of my favorite ways to wear my hair was half up, half down. I
t’s the best of both worlds, especially for someone who has a hard time making decisions, which is why a style like Aurora Hair is always a safe bet for any kid.
Complete with bangs, a bun in the back, one single curl in the front for extra detail, and a total of 18 swatches- you can’t go wrong.
It goes well with outfits of all occasions, whether they’re formal events or a playdate with their friends, and their hair will always look cute!
8. Babys French Braid
Toddlers need some cute hairstyles, too, especially since this is the time where you can usually get away with doing their hair however you want to, and they don’t seem to mind much.
If you want to get the most out of your toddler’s hair, but don’t want to have a style that’s too fussy, then something like Babys French Braid is a perfect option to give them something adorable without being too over the top.
It doesn’t get much simpler than this, a short style with a single french braid and some bangs in the front.
It’s sure to suit every toddler you have in your household regardless of the clothes they typically wear, and they may even like to rock a similar look as they get older!
7. Wings ON 1017
Similar to the hairstyle before, this is another look that uses french braids to its advantage. Some of the differences- it’s designed for older kids, not toddlers.
It also features two french braids instead of one for a pigtailed look, which is always something that we like to see.
But perhaps the biggest difference between this braided style and what we saw before is that there are two buns at the top of the hairstyle!
So, if you found yourself struggling to decide whether you should give your kid buns or braids, you don’t have to choose with Wings ON 1017.
6. Breathin Hair
An interesting spin on the normal, boring ponytail, we have Breathin Hair.
A ponytail where instead of seeing the elastic you have, the hair wrapping around itself makes it look like a sophisticated style without having something too dramatic. It also keeps the hair looking flowy and free by keeping some strands loose.
5. Kyra Hair
Sometimes, you don’t need your kids to hair to be super intricate and pretty.
You need it to be out of the way while they’re at play, and sometimes that even means the use of accessories like clips, but at the end of the day, they need to be able to function properly with however they choose to wear their hair.
Kyra Hair is definitely on the tomboy side of things. It’s a pretty short cut with not a lot of special details, textures, or anything that may suggest that this kid fusses over their hair.
They’ve put a few fun clips to spice things up, but at the end of the day, this kid has bigger things to worry about than their hair.
4. Hugo Hair
We’ve given a lot of thought to our girls’ hair choices, but what about hairstyles for young boys?
After all, they have hair just like any Sim, and they need something to do with it. Hugo Hair is a simple boy’s haircut that leaves them with a little length to play around with, and it’s not dull and lifeless like a lot of the base game options tend to be.
When your young Sim boys need a new look, then this is the way to turn. It works on both toddlers and children, and you’ll love how cute they look with their hair slicked back!
3. Wings TZ 014
Another option for young boys, this custom content actually comes with two choices instead of just one.
The first is wavy, pushed to the side option that leaves things a little bit messy, but you can tell that they brushed their hair when they woke up this morning.
The second option is a little longer and a little messier. It uses your child’s cowlick to its advantage as it makes a unique swoop motion to their hair.
Both choices are perfect for kids busy at play, and they’re also both compatible for both toddlers and young children!
2. March Goodies Part II
March Goodies Part II is a small collection of kid’s pigtails that come in both regular ponytails and braids for versatility and more options when you’re designing your Sim.
These hairstyles vary in length, so instead of just choosing between how the hair is styled, you also get the option of playing around with the hair cut.
All of these hairstyles are hat compatible and are available to use for both children and toddlers alike.
1. It’s Playtime Collection
The It’s Playtime Collection is a massive collection, in total 111 items of custom content, that revolves around making your youngest Sims childhoods the best they can possibly be.
Some of the items you can expect to find include both build/buy items as well as CAS, of course, including some really great hairstyles!
In terms of hair, some of the styles that are included are the baby poof, which is a small ponytail on the top of your toddler’s head, Kimmy, which is a much bigger ponytail with bangs, and even Curly Pigtails, which lives up to its name pretty well.
For all things, kids and toddlers, especially hair, this collection is a goldmine!
