The Sims Freeplay- Boutique Hairstyles Review

This is my review of each of the new hairstyles you can unlock from the boutique hair event. There are 12 different colours of each hairstyle apart from the Harajuku hairstyles which come in 14 colours

You can find all the styles you have unlocked from a wardrobe or create a sim for adult females

I will be rating the hairstyles from 9 to 1 with 1 being my favourite! Although I like all of them so this was quite difficult!

9. Wavy Fringe– This is my least favourite but only because I really don’t like how the fringe is cut, I like the rest of the style!

image

8. Harajuku Bows– I know the title of this hairstyle would need changing but I just don’t like how many bows there are on this one, the hair itself is really nice especially in the multi colours, it could just do with a few less bows!

image

7. Side Part– not a big fan of hair all pushed to one side but that is just my opinion

image

6. Harajuku Pigtails– from the front I love this one but I think it would look better if it was just pigtails and didn’t have the loose hair at the back

image

5. Simply Straight– this one is very similar to the hair unlocked on the ringlet of fire quest, really like it but some of the ones in this event are more interesting!

image

4. Wavy– simple but classic! I think it looks great in the natural colours

image

3. Loose Ponytail– I really like curly ponytails, I just don’t think some of the hair bands go with all the colours, for example the orange one with the blue hair would look better in the blue or black seen on some of the other colours

image

2. Parted Fringe– I just love this one! It didn’t make 1st place only because I love the other one more!

image

1. Loose Side Plait– LOVE this one so much! It was the first one I unlocked and I could have just stopped after completing that first set!

image

Which one is your favourite and have you managed to unlock them all?

Thanks for reading!

The Sims Freeplay- Competition Center

The competition center is a good way to earn extra LPs or simoleons, if you haven’t built it yet you can find out where it is in simtown from the town map 
The higher level you are in a career or hobby the more chance you have of winning first prize at the competition center.

When you click on the competition center (as shown in the picture below) it will appear with a competition (I had the archery hobby) it tells you how much you will get for each placing (which is always the same, regardless of the competition you get):

  • 1st place- 3LPs
  • 2nd place- 1LP
  • 3rd place- S1000 and 1000XPs
  • 4th place- S500 and 500XPs

Then you can select a sim- always go for the sim with the highest level in that hobby/career (it will tell you what level your sims are at)

For example: Zack is level 6 in archery so I would definitely use him over Hayley who has never done archery before (level 0/6)

NOTE: your sim must not be busy for them to partake in a competition, they will appear greyed out if they are busy.

Once you have selected your sim they will be busy competing for 24 hours, once the time is up you will need to go back to the competition center to see where they were placed.

If your sim is level 6 then they should come first but they don’t always!

image

 

At 9am everyday a new competition becomes available if your sim isn’t partaking in one already so keep checking back until you find one that you want to do!

NOTE: If you changed a sims career or hobby, for example if they did cooking and then you changed them to fishing their skill level for cooking will now be 0 so entering a cooking competition will earn them fourth place.

Is it worth it? I rarely use the competition center if I am being completely honest, its a good way to make a few extra LPs but it does mean your sim cannot do anything else for a whole day.

Which careers appear at the competition center?

  • Teaching
  • Acting
  • Politics
  • Music
  • Real Estate
  • Science
  • Athletics
  • Student (preteen required)
  • High School Student (teen required)
  • Firefighting
  • Artist

These are all the ones I have seen so far but I am still updating this post, if you have seen others please comment and I will add them to this post

The Sims Freeplay- Pet Salon

This is going to be a very quick post as there isn’t much to say about the pet salon but I have been asked about it.

If you don’t know where to find it it is near the competition center (the location can be found on my town map post)
image

What can you find in the pet salon?

If you complete the A Puppy Odyssey quest in the time limit you unlock outfits for your kittens and puppies that can be brought from the pet salon

The main reason for it though is to buy collars for your adult cats and dogs so they can go to the Pet Park (which can be built once you complete the life dreams and legacies quest) to complete the Cat Show, Dog Agility and Dog Obedience hobbies!

You can also buy Christmas antlers and hats for your adult cats and dogs!

How do you buy items?

The pet salon works the same way as the sims salon, you select the pet you want then you can choose the collar, hat, headwear or outfit for them to wear and click the green tick in the corner to buy

Dog– collars, hats and headwear
image

Cat– collars, hats and headwear
image

Puppy– outfits (if you complete the A Puppy Odyssey quest in the time limit)
image

Kitten– outfits (if you complete the A Puppy Odyssey quest in the time limit)
image

How do I remove an item? Click the back arrow which is the first box on the options

image

If I replace an item with another one, would the first be stored? No, you would have to buy it again

How do I send a pet to the pet park once they are wearing a collar? Click on the pet and select, send to pet park

The Sims Freeplay- Getting Divorced

If you have two married sims that you no longer want to be together you can get them divorced.

  1. To do this you need to get them to either be rude or complain to each other
  2. Then after that if you click to interact again there will be an option to divorce for 12 seconds

 

They will now no longer be together but they will still have the same last name and will be living in the same house.

 

To move one of them out you can either:

1.Move them into a new empty house by selecting the relocate existing sim option

2.Move them in with another sim, either as good friends or romantically (moving in with another sim will change their last name to the sims they are going to be living with)

 

If they have children you will have to decide who they are going to live with:

  • if the children are babies, toddlers or preteens they cannot move out with the parent who moves out so will have to live with the parent who is staying at that house (once the parent who is leaving has moved out you can select relocate family on an empty house to move the remaining family to a different house if you want to)
  • if the children are teenagers they can move out with the parent who moves out (when the parent moves out they can become good friends with them if they aren’t already and select move in with sim)

 

What relation are the children to the parents and their new partners if they have one?

  • Their parents will still be their parents so it will say mom or dad when they want to interact with them
  • Their parents new partners will have no relation to the children

NOTE: if they have children with a new partner the children will all be siblings

 

Who gets who’s last name?

  • The sim who moves out, if they move in with someone else they will get their last name, for example if John Smith moved in with Jane Hill he will become John Hill
  • If the sim moves into an empty house they will keep their own last name

 

If the mom wants to move out with a new partner will the children be able to come too?

No, the children will remain in the other house, you need the partner to move in with the mom to keep the family together

 

Do you get the ring back to use again? 

No, you will have to buy a new ring to marry future sims

 

Thanks for reading!
