v2.5 Update

2. Nexus mod manager install: After downloading, enable the mod in the mod manager. Check that the mod is enabled in "Users\[your user name]\AppData\Local\Fallout4\Plugins.txt". You should see *AzarPonytailHairstyles.esp in the list.

This can also be added to your Fallout4.ini instead of Fallout4Custom.ini.

5. In the game, open the console with the tilde key. Type "slm player 1". Select the face, then the hair, then your desired hairstyle (i.e. Azar Ponytail 1). Exit out of the menu and you're done. You can also go to a barbershop to choose your hairstyle.

Known Issues:

- As of Fallout 4 patch 1.5, archive invalidation isn't working. You will need to revert back to the old way of enablinig mods. See step 4 in the installation section. Interface mods may also cause crashes. If that's the case, remove /INTERFACE from the sResourceDataDirsFinal line in the ini file.
- The physics for the longer ponytails will occasionally glitch out and jump around. This is due to the rig I'm working from, which isn't suited for the longer hairstyles. I will address this in the future.
- The hairstyles were not designed for males, but can be used on them. You may experience clipping or other issues.
- If your game crashes or you are getting missing hairs, uninstall the mod and reinstall. Set the load order of the ESP to the very last, run the game, go to an empty interior, unequip all of your character's items, and try "slm player 1" again.
