The Sims Freeplay- Mean Curls Hobby Event


The mean curls event to unlock hairstyles for your female adult sims is back! To get all 9 hairstyles you need to complete the fashion designer hobby collection 9 times in 9 days. You get a new hairstyle each time you complete the collection (find all 12 fashion pieces), once you unlock a hairstyle you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all.

If you completed this event last time you will not get it again, if you found some hairstyles last time you won’t need to find those ones again, for example, if you unlocked 7 hairstyles last time you will only have to complete the collection twice this time to finish the event

If you have never done the fashion designer hobby click here for details.

You need to firstly accept this event, it will remove the fashion designs you have already created from the collection so you don’t get a head start.

If you say no you can start it from the active tasks tab, you will not get any extra time if you start this late.

If you already have a sim as a level 6 fashion designer (or previous have) then you will complete this a lot quicker as you aren’t waiting for all the designs to become unlocked.
It is really helpful to have loads of sims doing the hobby, and have them doing the 10 minute option over and over if possible!




-have more than one sim working on it
-it is easier if you have all the sims in one house, maybe build a room for them so they are all together but you don’t have to! 
-if you can, do the 10 minute option over and over, you will find the most designs this way (once you have a sim at level 6)

-have at least one sim at level 6 or working on getting to level 6 (maybe do the 12 hour option) so all designs are unlocked (if you have previously completed the collection you do not need to get another sim to level 6 to complete this)
-remember to click start new collection on the fashion hobby collections list once you have got all the pieces and unlocked a hairstyle
-most importantly: just keep going! I know it’s annoying when you get the same one constantly but you will eventually get the ones you need.

Hairstyles– there are 11 of each style available once you unlock them, each time you complete the collection you will unlock one hairstyle:

  1. I had 14 sims working at once, all only at level 1/2 and managed to get all the hairstyles in 1 day! It was really helpful to have multiple sims working and doing the 10 minute option over and over. So glad I got them all because last time I missed the event and only had less than a day left to collect any hairstyles.

  2. Hello! May I ask, if the time limit is over will Mean Curls be removed from my active quests? I accidentally accepted the quest but I don’t really plan on starting this one. I’m worried I’ll be stuck on it and won’t be allowed to start other quests. I’ve read from your other posts about queues and right now, I have another active discovery quest. I’m assuming if I finish that one, I can proceed with other discovery quests or live events, or do I have to finish Mean Curls first? Thanks a lot! 🙂

    • It will only be there for the 9 day time limit,once the time limit is up it will be removed from your active tasks but completing these time limited hobby events doesn’t have any effect on your other quests.

  3. I have one sim who is level 6 & a few others who are level 1 or 2 working on this. I have so far gotten 2 hairstyles and I am working on getting a 3rd but once I got to only one fashion item left to collect, all of my sims even the level 6 one have only been able to get level 1 or 2 fashion items. I have been at this for hours checking every 10 minutes. I am about to throw my phone at the wall lmao. Is this some type of glitch or am I just super unlucky?

  4. I’m new at this and have 7 sims doing the fashion hobby right now. Every time they get done it only unlocks outfits, I get the fishermans overalls a lot. Am I doing this right??

    • Yes you are doing it right, you just need to get a sim to level 6 in the fashion designer hobby to be able to find all the items so have a sim doing the longer options until they reach level 6 then you can just do the 10 minute option over and over to complete the collection.

  5. I have played this event for 5 days and still have not won a style! I have 2 sims out of 4 on level 6 but keep getting the same sets. So frustrating! I don’t think I’ll ever win a single style because I refuse to use the social points.

  6. This event was much easier than the aerobics.. hated that one. Lol

    Oh and BTW..
    Awesome Blog.. invaluable info.. thanks for it.

  7. Stupid pink dressy shoes are the hardest to get. Have 6 girls all at max level and it takes forever for them. Need 1 more shoe and I have all the hair styles. Been doing 10 min for the past 3 hrs and still hasn’t shown up. 8 hrs left for me. (used extension)
    Awesome blog use it for every quest.

  8. The Mean curls event ended, and I think I only got one style… will it come again?
    I was way too new and lacked resources… (but I am currently preparing myself just in case!)
