I have those face mods listed above but my characters still not look as in your screenshots, why?
To make my characters and the hair look as good as possible I use ENB mod
Seasons of Skyrim ENB True HDR by Bronze316 http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/23812
RealLike ENB by s3b3k87 http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/22056
ENBPM- OLD VERSION - v1.998b - Atmospheric ENB Series by PMind http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/4577

Are you going to release your female face textures?
Yes eventually, I will try to get the permissions to do so.

Why do I have color mismatch on NPC faces after installing an NPC mod that uses your hairs?
If you have an NPC changing mod that is made with the CK you have to also install
all the created - exported- head meshes and face textures - face tints for every changed NPC or else every changed NPC will have a grey-green face.
Make sure you install all the files from the NPC mod.

Why can't I load skyrim.ESM and ApachiiHair.ESM at the same time in the CK?
Add bAllowMultipleMasterLoads=1 under [General] in SkyrimEditor.ini in your /Skyrim folder.

Why do I have duplicates - triplicates or more version of every hair in the showracemenu?
If you install a NPC changing mod that uses the NPC editor to give NPCs my hairs then for every changed NPC it will create a duplicate of every hair in my mod in showracemenu.

Why do I get CTD when changing hair, race or sex in showracemenu?
Use showracemenu when you are inside small building to avoid CTD.
A mod to help you change hair styles.

Show Race Menu Options by MojoDaJojo http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/20092
If you just want to change hair style on your character without the risk of CTD or frozen menu.

ShowRaceMenu Fix
Keep all your skills, perks, health stamina and magic points after using the "ShowRaceMenu" command. http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/20394

Start as Female - Timer Saver by IDzeroNo - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/27847

The mod is not working, no hairs shows up in the showracemenu?
Possible problem that you may have:
1-Not activated the mod in the Skyrim launcher
2-Have not installed all the files

Why can't I activate your esm file in the Skyrim launcher, the Data files option is greyed out?
If you can't select files in the launcher go to - DocumentsMy GamesSkyrim
- Open SkyrimPrefs.ini
- In the text look for
[Launcher]
bEnableFileSelection=1 (if this is 0 change it to 1)

My character gets bald when using a helmet, what can be done to fix this?
You have to install my ApachiiHelmetWigs_v_1_0 under optional files.
Equipable Wigs for use under helmet and hats.
Craft them at the forge or get them for free from a barrel outside Riften Stable.

Why is the long hair or long braids floating above my characters chest?
The hair is made to not clip into my character that uses CBBE curvy heavy body with armor.
I am working on making some of the hairs fit close to characters with small boobs.

Hairs will be added regularly - Male will have more styles

2012-02-19 MMOxReview - Mod of the week - Apachii Sky Hair

=============
Installation:
=============
Copy the ApachiiSkyHair.ESM, meshes and textures folder and paste it in your Data folder
and confirm to overwrite if you already have a meshes and textures folder there.

To check if all the meshes are installed for Main version v1.5.Full
- Right click on the folder apachii in
Data - meshes - actors - character - character assets - hair
choose properties. If everything is installed you should have
147 MB
380 files, 17 folders

To check if all the textures are installed for Main version v1.5.Full
- Right click on the folder apachii in
Data - textures - actors - character - hair
choose properties. If everything is installed you should have
259 MB
115 files, 23 folders


================
Uninstallation:
================
- Remove ApachiiHair.ESM from your Data folder
- Remove from Datameshesactorscharactercharacter assetshair the folder - apachii
- Remove from Datatexturesactorscharacterhair the folder - apachii

===============
Known Issues:
===============
- Bald under helmet, When using a helmet no hair is showing under the helmet to avoid clipping.
- Install my wig mod for use under helmet under optional files, works for all races male and female.
- CTD when changing sex-race in showracemenu, read FAQ for help.
- Error about tri file in CK when adding my hair to NPC, just ignore the messages - click OK and continue.


=============================================
How to give your new character Apachii Sky Hair:
=============================================
In the character creation window you can browse through the hairstyles and choose, they are first in the hair selection before the Default "vanilla" hair styles.

===================================================
How to change the hair on your existing character:
===================================================
On PC, open console(`) and type showracemenu -enter- It brings up the character customization menu.
- Make sure you are in the third person view before editing your character, otherwise you will be invisible, and unable to see the changes made on your character
showracemenu- will NOT modify your attributes/skills/points/etc. unless you change the race, sex, or select a preset from the list.
Modifying purely cosmetic things like hair will leave your points unchanged.If the character moves it's hands in front like they were tied,
it's a clear indication that the skills will be messed up,if the hands remain parallel to the body it's fine.
A way to fix the modified attributes error is to simply re-equip your gear.
You also need to re-enter (or change) your name.

===================================
How to change the hair on NPC:
===================================
Note-there is a bug in the Creation Kit that makes the NPC that you make changes to have color mismatch (Face/Body)
follow these guidelines to avoid the problem.

======================
Creation Kit version:
======================
This is how I fixed the color mismatch on Lydia after changing her hair.


Lydias Steele armor by Killer Keos Skimpy CBBE V2 Armor Set http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=3654

Open Creation Kit with Skyrim.esm and ApachiiSkyHair.esm selected but not as active.
Locate the pre-existing NPC you want to give new hair.
Edit the Actor > Character Gen Parts tab.
Under Base Head Parts list select the Apachii hair you want your character to use
choose preview full on your character,
if you choose preview head the hair does not show on the character,
ignore any error messages you get about the tri files.
Click OK and close the characters window.
In the Object Window, find the base Actor you've just edited.
With the Actor selected in the list, press ctrl+F4. Click "Yes" when prompted to export.

This will create 2 new face textures DDS files with the NPCs ID number
(example - 000B997F.dds)in data/Textures/Actors/Character/FaceGenData/FaceTint/Skyrim.esm.

It also creates a head meshes with the NPCs ID number(example - 000B997F.NIF)
in Data/meshes/actors/character/FaceGenData/FaceGeom/Skyrim.esm

Keep the meshes and textures.

Make a plugin with the character changes.
