Animal Crossing: New Horizons gives you more control in the Animal Crossing series than ever before. You gain control of the terrain and the environment on an entire island, creating different levels, waterfalls and rivers almost anywhere you want. This control is not limited to just your surroundings, but also allows you to design how you look.
You can change how your character looks at any time. Initially you will be limited in your options, but over time you have the chance to buy additional hairstyles, hair colors and eye colors. And updating your look is extremely easy.
Get a new look
As you begin the game you will be offered four mouth alternatives, three noses and three redness options. These numbers will always be the same. But what will change are the hairstyles and colors you can choose from. When you initially create your character, you are offered eight different hairstyles and eight different hair colors. All these tones are natural. While this seems limiting, as the game progresses, you have a chance to pick up more.
You will be able to purchase more hairstyles and colors when your campsite also expands when the Nook Miles program is unlocked. When the green kiosk is open, it begins to offer a variety of DIY hairs that you can buy. These DIY will expand your collection of hair colors and styles.
The 8 best hairstyle DIY and the 8 cool hairstyle DIY come with more hairstyles that you can choose from. In addition, the top 8 elegant hair colors offer DIY light gray, turquoise, green, blue, cherry, orange, purple and pink hair color options. The two DIY hairstyles cost 2,400 Nook Miles, while the hair colors cost 3,000 Nook Miles, so be sure to save!
In addition, players who travel or are inactive in the game for two weeks will have a chance to get a different style of hair: bed heads. To get the hairstyle on the headboard you either have to travel 15 days ahead or just not play the game for 15 days. When you finally log in, your character will come out of the house with unruly hair. The character will straighten it out and it goes back to normal, but it will be offered as an option for players in the future.
What You Need to Update Your Appearance
Changing how you look is exceptionally easy. All you need is a mirror. You can either do the full-length basic mirror or buy one when it is available in the Nooks Miles + program. Once you have the mirror, place it somewhere in your house where you can reach it.
When placed, just go up to the mirror and press A . The game will ask if you want to "Change your appearance" with the mirror. By answering affirmation, you can change everything you want about your character's appearance. The mirror allows you to change the character's eyes, mouth, nose, skin color, hair color and hairstyle. You can even add custom designs so that your character finally has eyebrows. It is also worth noting that the first time you touch the mirror you will automatically have six more hairstyles to choose from. So even if you do not buy the other hairstyle, you at least get more options for hairstyles than you were originally offered.
