Get those mirrors ready for unique hairstyles in FFXIV!

Unique hairstyle list, how to get them? Trade or buy on the market board!
Hairstyles, we all love them. Let me tell you, the amount of time I spend customizing my look in MMO’s (FFXIV in particular) is astounding. If I had invested that time into actually playing the game, I would be unstoppable. It’s no secret that all players love to customize their character, albeit their appearance, race or gender.
FFXIV’s vanity system (glamour) allows players to fully take advantage of this sort of customization and because of the in-game camera being so in-depth, players tend to spend extra time customizing and managing their looks. One customization that players like to spend extra time on, is hairstyles. Why? Well, not only can they make or break a look, but they can appear in your avatar. You can also make changes to your avatar using FFXIV Gil, which you can buy here. Sadly, at-least for now, newly added races such as the Viera and Hrothgar, cannot use all hairstyles mentioned in this article.

How to unlock additional hairstyles?

Should you wish to change your characters appearance, you will need to unlock the Aesthetician. The Aesthetician allows you to change the following:

• Hairstyles and hair colour
• Eyebrows
• Lip colour
• Facial features (scars, bushy eyebrows, etc.)
• Tattoos and tattoo colours
• Face paint and face paint colours

Should you wish to change your character race, skin color and gender, you will need to use a Fantasia, which can be purchased from the FFXIV Online Store. You can also purchase special hairstyles from the Online Store as well. To unlock the Aesthetician, you will need to be at least level 15 and start the quest:

• 'Beauty is Only Scalp-Deep'

Head over to Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks and speak to S’dhodjbi in the Drowning Wench, who will tell you to investigate a commotion in the city. You will then need to assist Jandelaine as well as visit various Disciple of the Hand guilds. Once completed, you will unlock the Aesthetician service and receive x1 Jandelaine’s Token.

You can then access the service by summoning Jandelaine with the Crystal Bell found in every inn room. Please note that to use the Aesthetician, it will cost either 2,000 Gil, or x1 Jandelaine’s Token, per use. You only pay after confirming the changes, so just browsing won’t cost anything. Who knew window shopping was free in games too?

Unique hairstyles

Aside from the standard in-game hairstyles, there are some unique hairstyles that can be earned in a variety of different ways. Sadly, some of them – such as the Cloud Strife hairstyle (my all-time favorite character from FF7) cannot be earned anymore. Below I will list a variety of hairstyles, as well as how you can earn them.
