@crinrict I can confirm that I am seeing this in my game as well on male Sims. The mesh between the two versions is very slightly different.
It actually is possible to change the colour of the broken duplicate but not by using the swatch selector. If you apply the correct hair and change the colour, when you switch back to the broken duplicate the colour will have changed there as well.

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In CAS. It's a get to work kind of hair.
What happens when the bug occurs? There is a buggy kind of hair from get to work. It's similar to another kind of hair. The pic is old brown instead of black like all the others. When I put it on a sim it doesn't change color. It can be only old brown or old black. (the last two colors)
What do you expect to see? I expect not to see it. I think that's an error.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. It was appeared after I've installed the "skin tone" update.

This is the buggy kind of hair.

@Cesco460 Hi!  So, first of all, I just want to say just because someone has a bit of grey hair doesn't mean they're "old". Tongue out Maybe I took that a little too personally. lol

 

Anyway, I just tested this and I definitely think you found a bug with this hair.  My sim had black hair already so the hairstyle you mentioned looked fine at first. By the way, this hairstyle does have a bit of a "sheen" to it, so even the black color has a little grey in it.  I think that's intentional.

 

When I changed it to the grey/black or grey/brown hair, I could not change it back to just black or brown.  However, when I changed to a different hairstyle, I was able to change back to the black and brown colors. As a workaround, try changing to a different hairstyle and choose the black or brown color.  Then switch back to the one you highlighted. 

This is how it looks in by game.

Black/Grey  and  Black

Brown/Grey  and  Brown (the difference is much more pronounced in the brown colors I think)

@Cesco460 Going to merge this with the existing thread for another hairstyle that has the same issue.

The other is a female hairstyle but it looks like it's the same issue.

Thank you! I think it's definitely the same issue. There is the same bug in my game for the girl version.

I hope they will fix it soon...
