How do I apply textures to auto-fit items?

So here’s my issue:

I bought a hair and hair colour kit. (Melody Hair and Luminous Melody). I am now trying to fit this onto my V5 Character. The hair auto-fits fine, but I cannot apply any of the colour/textures to the hair, it’s just a white plastic wig at this point. I’m feeling pretty lost… I can’t find any support for this anywhere else…

Thanks in advance for your help!

It’s working for me—did you make sure to select the hair before applying the material preset?

Well, That’s what it was. I just derped…

I know my questions seem noobish, but heck, I’m learning as I go.

Thank you so much for your assistance!

So just to clarify: This method will work with ANY Auto-fit piece of clothing/hair/prop? I just need to make sure I select the item before choosing material?

Yes, auto-fit doesn’t change the UVMaps, so the textures for the unfit version should all still work.
