@Mirukukiru0 I'm not sure this is a bug. The fact that it is not available in CAS doesn't mean it's a bug. That hairstyle is rare and perhaps it should be like that according to game specifications. If this is the case, this post would be a suggestion for improvement of the game.

@SalixCat I wouldn’t rule out that it’s not a bug.


Several CAS items disappeared in the game from pre-launch to launch. It’s reasonable that they may have disappeared from CAS as the direct result of a bug.


These items included not only the hairstyle brought up by the OP, but also all the items in the collage below.  (And the collage was created by the OP, who had been advocating for the return of these items/fix of the bug probably since fall 2018). 


The items above were restored to the game in the March 2019 update, but not the hairstyle in question. It’s reasonable that all of the items and the hairstyle disappeared because of a bug, and that the devs only fixed/restored the items in the collage, but didn’t fix/restore the hairstyle. 


To me, it seems more logical that items and hairstyle disappeared because of a bug, than it being a unicorn rare hairstyle seen by so few players, with the only way to get it being a move-in request and a prayer that a sim child would grow up wearing the hairstyle. It’s an anomaly, and I think that sounds more like a bug than anything else.
