This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

Is there any way that you can make this a .zip file? I really wish that I could download these but my computer won't do .rar files. Other than that, these are very lovely recolors :]

A mesh is basically the 3-d shape of the item(hair in this case) you need the mesh or it will not show up in-game hope this helps
