Like many MMORPGs on the market, different hairstyles are available in Ragnarok Online for players to customize their characters with. There are different versions of hairstyles for both male and female characters.

In the beginning of RO's development, hairstyles were once animated so that they would mesh with the movement animation of player characters. They were later replaced with static versions for some reason. (Read more on Unimplemented RO Features.)

Items Required

In RO you must collect certain items in addition to paying Zeny in order to change your character's hairstyle:

Once you have all the items required to change your character's hairstyle, you can either go to the Lighthalzen General Store (3rd floor) or the Alberta Hair Salon. Keep in mind that each hair salon will offer different sets of hairstyles.

Alberta Hair Salon

RO AlbertaHairSalon

The hair salon in Alberta.

In Alberta, the hair salon was fashioned from an unused inn by a lady name Veronica. In order to choose a particular hairstyle, players must enter a numerical digit from 1 to 19. All of these hairstyles are available on the character creation screen.



Lighthalzen General Store

RO LighthalzenGeneralStore

The Lighthalzen General Store.

The Lighthalzen hairstylist by the name of Prince Shammi is located on the third floor of the Lighthalzen General Store. He offers a much smaller selection of hairstyles. The Old Hairstyles can be selected on the character creation screen, but the New Hairstyles are unavailable on it.



Styling Shop

RO StylingShop

The Styling Shop interface in kRO.

RO now features a Styling Shop, which is a barbershop-type system for changing your character's hairstyle. Styling Shops are available in the following towns for both Normans and Dorams:

Players can now change both hairstyles and hair color of their characters for the price of 100,000 Zeny. Extra headgear accessories can also be purchased from the Styling Shop for additional costs. Players can also save certain styles in the Favorites (heart) tab of the Styling Shop for future reference.

For players that do not want to pay 100,000 zeny to change, trainee hairstylist NPCs will be available to change hairstyles and hair color in exchange for items.
