Hair in The Sims 4 is designed to look much more thick and simplified compared to previous iterations of the Sims franchise. Sims 4 hair is not animated, unlike in The Sims 2. There was briefly a rumor that Sims 4 would have animated hair and hair that grew over time, but this proved to be an error in translation.
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

Hair Colors[edit | edit source]
There are a total of 18 hair colors in the Sims 4. (Not including CC)
Children only have access to 9 of the 18 colors, [Black, Dark Brown, Brown, Red, Auburn, Orange, Dirty Blond, Blond, and Platinum Blond.] Presumably because it is assumed that children shouldn't be dying their hair unnatural colors, and would not naturally have the salt and pepper styles. Teenagers, Young Adults, Adults, and Elders can also have White, Silver/Grey, Pale Pink, Pink, Dark Blue, Teal/Blue, Green, Brown-Grey, and Black-Grey hair.
