Okay, so basically I want to recolor some hairs to make them have a Melanie Martinez kind-of style. But when I try to recolor just half of the hair, it colors both sides. Does anybody know how to split the left from the right? I use Blender to alter meshes and Paint.Net to recolor. Any help is appreciated! :-)

Sounds like a UV map problem. If both halves of the hair are UV mapped over the same part of the texture file, then when you recolour the texture file it will change both sides of the hair at once. Most EA hairs don't have that problem so you might want to choose another hair to recolour instead.
If you really want to keep the hair you're working on, you'll need to edit the UV map and the texture file which can be a long process:
1. In edit mode in Blender, try selecting the half of the hair that you want to recolour. Open the UV editor if it isn’t open already:
2. In the UV editor press A to select all. Then press G to move the selection to a different part of the image.
3. All parts of the model’s UV need to be within the hair section of the texture file so they don't clash with other clothing ( sims4studio.com/thread/62/fix-uv-map-template ). You can use the S key to change the size of the UV selection (S + X to change the width and S + Y for height) which might help. Afterwards you will probably also have to edit the texture file so it looks good with the new UV map. Trial and error is the best way to do that.
Unfortunately there's rarely a quick solution when it comes to UV mapping
