Can you change your hairstyle in the game after you create your character? Like is there a barber shop to change appearance at, or anything of the sort?

Upper left corner after the first screen on the character creator.

He said after you create the char.
No, unfortunately, as of now there is no way to change a chars appearance after you finish making it.

I wish there was - I swear my char's mouth changed after I hit finish on it and didn't notice until a few hours in.

Once you notice those little 'things' with the character you've made, you don't see anything else.
I would love for a change in hair style, I would like my hair to match my ever changing outfit.

You're right Insomnicide - Every single cutscene I look at his protruding lower lip - knowing, just knowing - that I did NOT pick it. lol

Yes I am also particular with my character's appearance, and this happens not just here, but many other MMOs as well. Whatever you pick in character creation screen can be subtly different in game. MAybe it's the lighting? Maybe it's the higher texture in creation screen, but lower texture in game?

I really notice the protruding lower lip/jaw however, and looks annoying. So it's not just you.

I ended up buying the "Operative" outfit with the "Mountain Tracker" headgear so my character would be hidden forever. Then I ended up creating in my mind a very nice background story. LOL

I hope they add re-customization when they add the new race so that we don't have to re-roll entirely if we want to play as that one...

Agreed, I hope they allow for character changes later on.

My guy looks way more Latino than he should when picking the 2nd lightest skin color... I think he got a sun tan in his ark hunter armour.

I would imagine it will be a cash shop option in the future.

As long as it is still an *option* I wouldn't mind that.

i wish they would allow you to mix up the outfits more not just the headpeice . hopefully when they do new patches they'll allow us to customize everything more indepth. i would like to have my charater seem less generic

I would say this is inevitable. The question of course is when?

Unless they make something like hairstyle, makeup and face paint can be changed using scrip, anything else requires bits.

IKR? My 1st toon looked fine in the creator and in the starter zone. As soon as he climbed over the wall with Cass he was like 3 shades darker. I deleted him and re-rolled a couple of shades lighter and he looks like he's supposed to.

Hopefully sometime in the near future they add a barbershop type thing.

I wouldn't even mind if it were in the cash shop (as long as there were NEW hair styles included).

I'm hoping they won't Cash shop customization things. But I think they would, best bet is that they include the option to customize with resources as well.

I spent a lot of time tweaking my character's head during creation. Immediately spent a few hours playing, then when I relaunched the game and got that big front view of my character, it looks a whooole lot different than what I spent time creating. Of course by then it was too late (TOO LATE) to start over, so I'll live with my now overly tanned skin, pursed lips… erf.

Yes, the lighting, shadows and everything else seemed to be a bit off in the character creator, compared to actual game play.

I went from being tan, to black :D

Not bad though, as I am pleased with my toon's appearance in general.
With the harmony preacher getup and sunglasses, totally reminds me of Scar from Fullmetal Alchemist!

What bothers me most though, is there is/was no bald or shaved head look available.

Soldiers, mercenaries and outlaws, and having a shaved head is not an option? :D

I'm waiting for someone who has spent $50 on cash-shop outfits to drop into this thread and laugh at everyone who cares about cosmetics in a shooter. Come on.. you know it's going to happen. Give it another page.

I would like to see a barber shop too.

It took Rift almsot a year to get a barbershop, so.. you may want to consider creating a new one if it bugs you THAT much.. otherwise tough luck!

My characters skin color is more than a few shades darker then I thought I had chosen. It's a nice mocha color now, which is fine. I feel it doesn't go so well with Blonde pigtails.

Well I am glad to see I am not the only one who this happened to. My GF made fun of my guy all the time (since she knows it bothered me lol). Then it happened to her when she rolled an alt so she finally knows I wasn't lying about features changing.
