Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the first mainline game in the franchise to allow character customization from the very start of the game. As well as being able to choose from a variety of skin tones and facial features, you can also choose your character’s hairstyle and hair colour. There are 8 different hairstyles and 8 different hair colours to choose from at the start. However, there are more to obtain as you progress through the game. And so here’s how unlock all available hairstyles and colours in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The 8 Hairstyles And 8 Hair Colours Available At The Start
How To Change Your Hairstyle Or Hair Colour
It is entirely possible to alter your character’s hairstyle and/or hair colour if you fancy a change.
In order to do this, you will need a mirror or vanity. You will eventually get the DIY recipe necessary to craft your own mirror. However, you may get lucky and see a mirror or vanity for sale either from Timmy in the Residents Services centre, or from Nook’s Cranny once you have unlocked it.
Once you have crafted or obtained a mirror or vanity, you should interact with it by pressing the A button. You will then be able to change your character’s hairstyle and colour. You will also be able to change your skin tone and facial features.
After interacting with a mirror or vanity for the first time, you will unlock 6 new hairstyles, bringing you up to 14 hairstyles to choose from.
