HAIR TIPS

USING YOUR HUD:

Vanity Hairs will be now controlled via HUD.
Here is a quick guide on how to use Vanity Hair's new Hud control.

BEFORE USING THE HUD : MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN AN AREA THAT ALLOWS SCRIPTS USAGE!

When opening your hair folder/box you will now find:

_Vanity Hair
_Vanity Hair Bases
_Vanity Hair HUD

Wear your Hair ( As usual )
Wear your Hud, it will attach to your screen.

You will see a panel with the following features:

Information button: left upper part of main screen hud, once you clicked it you will see a page with all the infos you may need. Just click on whatever you need. (Blog, marketplace, flickr, facebook etc..)

TEXTURIZE:
Just click on your favorite texture and the hair will automatically change.

STREAK1: TEXTURIZE STREAKS (then you can go to "Color me Bad" options and color them.)
*Please note that not all hairstyles will be elegible for this option.

COLOR ME BAD: Takes you to the color options screen.

COLOR PICKER: Pick one color, this color will automatically be displayed in the "Hair", "Accessory" and "Streak" buttons.

SHADER: Lightens or darkens the chosen color

HAIR // ACCESSORY // STREAK: Is where the color you have previously chosen will display at. Once you are happy with your color selection, click the button of your choice and the selected area will be tinted.

IMPORTANT: NOT ALL HAIRS HAVE ACCESSORIES NOR STREAKS, SO THIS OPTIONS WILL ONLY WORK FOR CERTAIN HAIRS.

If you dont longer want to apply any color to your hair do the following:

-Click on the "CLEAR" button and then,
-Click "HAIR/ACCESSORY/STREAK" button to apply the change.

 Your hair will now show only the texture you have preciously chosen.

If you made a color and you want to save it yo use it later, just click on "STORED COLORS"

RESIZE BUTTON: As it's name states, this button will resize your hair. You can always edit your hair manually if you wish. THE HAIRS ARE MODIFY EVEN IF YOU DONT SEE THAT PERMISSION IN YOUR HAIR, IT IS MODIFY , but due to the scripts inside, this permission is not displayed, but the hair still fully MOD.

IMPORTANT! THIS BUTTON WON'T WORK ON RIGGED MESH HAIRS!!!!


Nothing left to say,

Now enjoy your new Hair experience!!!


HOW TO EDIT YOUR HAIR MANUALLY:

All Vanity Hairs are sold with copy and mod permissions. 
Due to the scripts used in the hair you will see, that once in your inventory, your hair says it's no Mod, IGNORE THAT, the hair is FULLY MOD!

That being said, here is a very handful tutorial  i found in my inventory,on how to edit your hair. Unfortunately i dont know by who was it made to give her the credit.


BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE...make a copy of your new hair!!! By necessity, hairs are no transfer items which means that they cannot be returned. To copy your hairstyle, right-click on the item in your inventory & select copy. Then right-click on the folder containing the original item & select paste. You may wish to house your originals in one folder & your adjusted styles in another, your choice...

  A bit about hair creation: Hair is normally created on the creator's head &, because individuality in SL is a must, everyone's head is a little different. This is why some styles might need to be adjusted slightly to fit your unique proportions. The steps below will work on hair bought from any designer, so long as they have set their permissions to modify.

~*~*~ To make your hair larger (or smaller), follow along with the picture tutorial:


Special note: If the style you want to adjust is in 2 parts, be sure to select BOTH parts of the style so that both pieces will stretch at the same time & in the same proportion! To do this, select one part of the hair & choose Edit from the pie chart, then hold the shift key down while clicking on the other part of the style...both should now be highlighted...






Pull the little white box up (or down, if you wish your hair to be smaller) as seen in pic6.


~*~*~ Hair *through* your eye or elsewhere:

  Because everyone's shape is different, there are times when a pesky piece of hair sticks out of your eye or through your forehead. You can fix this by following these steps...



Now that everything has been adjusted for your own custom fit, get out there & show off that new head of hair!

SL now gives us the ability to wear several items on the same attachment point. Thank you SL :)
In your inventory, when you right click on an object, it will show you an extra feature :  (add).  Using (add), you add the object to the one you wear. Using (wear) you replace the object you wear..
The addition of multiple objects is valid for all attachment of your avatar 

Hair extensions have been attached to the skull, yes same attachment point as hair.
In order to wear your hair and your extension at the same time, you have to wear your hair first, and then, instead of wearing the hair extension you have to click on "ADD" option. This way you will be able to wear both at the same attachment point.

Please note this wont work in SL oldest viewer, so you need to update in order to benefit from this new feature.
