How To Change Your Hair Color In Splatoon 3

As you may have noticed, the option to change your hair color is clearly missing in the character creation menu. Well, that is not a bug or anything; it is intentional. Hair color is randomized in the game; the tutorial gives you random hair color. 

Your hair color will be different whenever you start a new game and reach Splatsville or when you reach a certain point in the story of the game.

While there is no traditional method to change hair color, players can still change the color of their hair by participating in different online matches like Turf Wars or Regular Battles. 

How this works is that before joining a Turf War, players will have the option to choose their team. Each team has a different hair color and ink color, so other players don’t get confused in differentiating between friend and foe.

Since each team has a different color, your hair color will automatically be changed to your last team color once you return to Splatsville after the match. Keep in mind that this method will not change your hair color permanently, and you will be forced to pick a new hair color whenever you join a new match.

The concept of the games revolves around different colors; therefore, it makes sense that the game does not have a traditional option to change the hair color because it wants the players to always look unique with different colors, which further adds variety to the aesthetic of the game.
