Astoria, that sounds like the viewer is aware of the attachment but it is orphaned. The viewers have the concept of orphaned prims -- objects where the parent ID isn't null but there's nothing known by that ID in the region. This can happen if the information about each arrives out of order to the viewer, e.g. if the info about the attachment was received by the viewer before the info about the avatar.
This could happen in an attachment if the viewer received the attachment before the avatar. Did you log in to that region, or was it a crossing, or a teleport?
I logged into one region, then teleported [eta - first within that region and then to a 2nd region], then tried to wear the attachment. (It had been listed with a link in my current outfit folder upon login but did not attach. I wore from the original, not the link).
[eata: the Greenwood was the 2nd region, where I tried to wear the hair. I did teleport within that region once I discovered that my hair had appeared beneath me sitting on the ground, to see if it would follow. (It did not, but it did follow me when I teleported to other regions, and appeared sitting on the ground there also, until I relogged)]
