    try restarting the game and/or system.

    My nightingale hood sometimes changed from dark black to a notice able lighter color, just restartig the game fixed it...might just do the trick.

    let me know if it worked

    And what if you become 'normal' again?

    become normal and vampire again perhaps...maybe that works.

    The hood shouldn't be affected by Vampirism because Vampirism doesn't do anything to your head meshes like hair does. It seems your hood mesh has gone transparent. Re-installing the game might help.

    I know it doesn't affect your hair but it does affect your appearance.
    Faces change slowly, couldn't that interfere with the hood?!

    I would think the face changes are only texture changes and that shouldn't interfere with the hood. The hood is a mesh that layers over the head. For whatever reason it becomes transparent for vampires. After looking at the quasi solution for the PC I don't think a re-installation will help. I found this video of the bug:
