Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow is the sixth Live Event in The Sims FreePlay during the Holiday Update 2017. Like previous events, it unlocks new salon-themed items. It lasts for 10 days. When the timer for the 10 days ends, there will be a 3 day period afterwards to purchase any of the remaining prizes. You will not be able to collect anymore arts and crafts resources or constructor coins. Once the timer for that period ends, the resources will convert into Simoleons.  

Tutorial

The tutorial is the same for all Live/Community Events.

  • Place a craft station
  • Craft candles
  • Restock a station
  • Buy the first prize
  • Use the spin flower
  • Check personal progress
  • Check daily goals
  • Collect bonuses
  • Continue collecting items

Notes:

  • the goal for restocking lasts 10 seconds. When a station requires restocking during the event, it will take 2 hours 30 minutes.
  • the 'buy the x pack' (shown below in the image 'Buy the flower power pack') goal will change according to the specific event.

Coin flower patch

The coin flower patch (shown right) is used to earn Constructor Coins. Constructor coins (CC for short) are the fifth required resource alongside the craft resources to progress along the bar and earn the prizes. During the tutorial (shown above) the first spin from the patch is free; after that you can either spend 450 candles or 25 SPs to earn constructor coins. Each Live/Community Event has the same garden patch, except it changes colour and uses a different resource (for example, in the Prince and the Pocket Sized Princess event, the patch was purple and required 450 daisies to use). 

Craft stations

There are four different craft stations, each with different amounts but the same times. You use these to progress through the Personal Progress bar to unlock and purchase prizes.
