hi! Can you explain the issue a little more? I'm not sure i'm understanding "linked between creators haircuts".
Do you have any examples?
---------------------<3 Please don't contact me via DM or elsewhere asking for assistance on matters that are being discussed on threads. It's better to keep the conversation in public so others can read and learn too. thanks!
For example I give a sim a haircut from the creator Anto (very nice haircuts) and I set the hair color to black for the outfit : "everyday 1". Then I give another haircut from Anto to this sim for his/her outfit : everyday 2 and decide to set the hair color to blond.
from then if I check back the outfit : "everyday 1", the hair color will have been switched to blond as well. If I reset it to black, black will also be applied to the "everyday 2" outfit. This behavior" also happens between categories. I can give an Anto haircut for the outfit "swimwear 1" and the same will happen with the color.
This can also happen with different creators sometimes :s Recently I had the issue between 2 different hair creators and I had to switch to the different outfits to re-set the hair color once I was done selecting the haircuts for the colors to finally stick (and I used 1 haircut per creator)
I just don't know the common ground here. What is creating this "issue". I guess there is some common id somewhere in all those packages. My understanding is that the game originally doesn't allow you to have different hair colors per outfits (I am not certain because of all my CC now -_-). So I am guessing this is the basic problem. But the fact that using CC from different creators is allowing you to change the hair color is making me want to identify the root of the problem so I can "fix" this.
PS : Now that I remember it, recloning doesn't help as I recloned a creation recently because of a recolor swatch that was not working, and the color selected was kept between the new package (I only copied 2 swatches), the original and the other creations from this creator.
Sorry for the wall of text, I hope it is somehow clearer and that I didn't give too many infos at once (I tend to do that as I write my thought process..)
Zelrish If there is a way to change that I would sure like to know, too.
I've been wondering about this for years! Someone told me that it is game related. You can not wear the same hairstyle in different colors per outfit, because if you try the exact same thing will happen as you've pointed out. A cloned/recolor did work for me though. You have to also change the color swatches for it to work. Exemple: clone the hairstyle of your desire (only one swatch) - after done so change the swatch color also. That worked for me. If anyone know a better way let us know
ETA: I just tried it with the latest S4S and it still works fine. Make sure you first copy the hairstyle package into Sims4Studio mods folder. Then export the texture of your desired hair color from the package. After that create a stand alone CAS object. Click Custom and chose your cc hair package. Once done so import the texture you've exported. IMPORTANT! Don't forget to change the swatch color a bit! If it is a red hair color just slightly change the red.
Now you can have two different colors of the same hairstyle per outfit for your Sim If you want more colors from the desired cc package just repeat the steps. One hair color per package.

This is quite useful. It somehow seems to be linked to the swatches themselves. I noticed yesterday while trying again to change some hair colors that a lot of creators seem to use the exact same swatches as base game haircuts. I am going to try tonight to simply change the swatches colors of an existing package to see what happens. Otherwise I will have to create additionnal packages using your method.
Thank you again

Sims 4 hairstyles are linked based on the hex codes of the swatches. If you want to have a linked color, just write down the hex code of the color you used, and use that in your next creation. it doesn't seem to work with pure black (#000000) and the colors get glitchy if there's too little difference between the codes like #000000 and say #000001
So if you use Maxis colors, there is a guide on properly linking maxis swatches, and if you have your own set of colors, you can write down the hex codes and use them consistently in any new hairstyles. It also works with beards and eyebrows.
