Splatoon 3 hairstyles come in two dozen shapes and sizes, and better still, there’s (almost) no limit to what style you can pick. Every Inkling or Octoling can choose from whatever styles are available to their respective species, regardless of gender. While the character selection screen limits you to a scant few choices for Inkling and Octoling, more open up as soon as you arrive in Splatsville.
How to Change Splatoon 3 Hairstyles
Though you pick your hairstyle before ever setting foot in Splatsville, you can change it at any point after you arrive in the city.
- Open the menu by pressing the “+” button.
- Navigate to the “Other” menu (the one with the amiibo symbol).
- Choose the “Style” tab.
Here, you can change your hairstyle, eyebrow shape and cut, and your pants style – everything you choose at the start of the game, in other words.
What you can’t alter is your hair color. It changes automatically every time you log into the game and then again at the start of the match, where it always matches your team’s ink color.
All Splatoon 3 Hairstyles
There are 24 hairstyles to choose from – 16 Inkling (squid kids) and eight Octoling (octo kids). Splatoon 3 has no gender options, so you can pick whatever hairstyle you want and change it at will.
Take note of the styles you really want. If you start with an Inkling style, you can’t swap to Octoling hair at all. You’re only option is creating a new character, which means starting from square one again.
So far, no additional hair options show up in Splatoon 3, though the chance always exists that Nintendo may add more in future updates.
