You can't actually alter the meshes at the moment, but there's another way this can be done. When you export the files, there should be one bmp with 'alpha' somewhere in the name. If you open it you will see it's a black and white picture. The white area determines which area of the hair mesh is covered by the hair picture. The parts that are black, even if they are over the mesh, will be transparent (so you'll just see neck). You can use this file to make a different, shorter hairstyle from a longer one. Just paint solid black over the white areas you want to remove, then load the files back into BodyShop. You can use the same technique to create goatees/ sideburns/ cropped trousers.

Hope that makes sense :-)
