How to Change Hairstyles & Facial Hair in Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is the latest open world game from Rockstar, set in the wild west. Players will take control of Arthur Morgan, a trusted member of the Dutch Van Der Linde gang. This is a prequel to the original game, which means that players will also get to see John Marston and what his life was like before he was forced to hunt down his old gang. If you’re wondering how to customize Arthur and change hairstyles and facial hair in Red Dead Redemption 2, here’s what you need to know.
How to Grow Your Hair in Red Dead Redemption 2
First off, Arthur’s appearance will change as time goes on in Red Dead Redemption 2, kinda similar to how Geralt’s beard would get longer if you left it unchecked in The Witcher 3. In this game, if you don’t touch Arthur’s hair or beard, it will also grow over time.
You can head over to any barber in the world, or check the shaving kit next to Arthur’s bed in camp to see how long your hair and beard have grown.
There are a total of 10 levels of length for his hair and beard. By checking it at the barber or the shaving kit, you can take a look at the bottom of your screen to see which hair level Arthur is currently at.
It does take a bit of time for his hair and beard to grow past level 5, however. Some beard styles can only be achieved once you’re past a certain length, so be careful not to trim it if there’s a particular style you’re going for.
The shaving kit will not actually allow you to cut Arthur’s hair or change hairstyles in Red Dead Redemption 2. You’ll need to go to the barber for that.
How to Cut Your Hair in Red Dead Redemption 2
Of course, if you feel like Arthur’s hair and beard are getting a bit too unruly for your tastes, you can also trim it. While his hair can only be trimmed at the barber, you can trim his beard easily from the shaving kit at camp.
Next to Arthur’s bed in camp, look for the shaving kit (represented by the triangle icon on the map), and interact with it. From here, you can choose to trim all his facial hair at once, or just a specific portion.
It’s also worth noting that you can trim down his facial hair to whatever level you want, as long as it’s below your current level. For instance, if Arthur’s beard is at level 6, you can trim it down to between level 1 to 5.
If you want to cut Arthur’s hair, however, you’ll need to go to a barber. Just look for the barber icon on your map, and head over there. They’re easily found in towns, such as Valentine, Saint Denis, and Blackwater. For a small fee, you can cut Arthur’s hair to make it shorter. Similar to the beard, you can trim it down to any level below your current one.

Aside from just trimming Arthur’s hair, you can also change hairstyles and beard styles in the game. Again, you’ll need to go to a barber to get this done. Interact with the barber, and you’ll be able to select from a variety of different hairstyles for him.
If your beard level is high enough, you can also choose from a selection of different beard styles for Arthur.
Once you’ve gotten the ideal haircut for Arthur, don’t forget to buy some pomade to grease up his hair as well. This can be bought from a General Store for less than a couple bucks, meaning you should always be able to look suave out in the wild west whenever you need to.
And that’s all you need to know about how to change hairstyles and facial hair in Red Dead Redemption 2. Be sure to check our Red Dead Redemption 2 guide wiki for more information on the game.
