How to style your hair in project zomboid

In Project Zomboid, you can customize your character’s appearance in a number of ways. One way is to give them a haircut. To do this, you’ll need to find a pair of scissors in the game world or have one in your inventory. Keep in mind that you can only go shorter with a haircut.

Hair growth is a thing in Project Zomboid, and it takes approximately 20 days for the hair to grow from a short to a medium length. However, this growth only occurs while sleeping, so it may not be as noticeable to someone who doesn’t pay close attention.

To style your hair, you can use the scissors to give it a trim, but you’ll have to wait for it to grow out if you want longer hair. You can also use hair dye to change the color of your hair. There are 10 different colors of hair dye available in the game, and you can use it to change your hair color. The dye will stay in your hair even if you cut it, and it cannot be removed by washing. You can also use the dye to color your beard. To use hair dye, right-click on it and select “Dye Hair”.

You can also use makeup to customize your character’s appearance in Project Zomboid. There are three types of cosmetics available: Lipstick, Eyes Makeup, and Foundation Makeup. To use any of these cosmetics, you’ll need to find a nearby mirror. Lipstick allows you to change the color of your lips, Eyes Makeup allows you to apply eyeshadow or paints around the character’s eyes, and foundation allows you to apply general face makeup or colors beneath the eyes. Any of these cosmetics will allow you to remove any makeup that is already applied. None of these styles confer any bonuses and are all merely cosmetic in nature.

If you want to try out even more hairstyles and hair colors, there are several mods available that add new options to the game. Some of the options include the Fluffy Hair Mod, Spongie’s Hair, Harry’s Hair, Improved Hair Menu, and Yaki’s Hair Salon. Each of these mods adds new hairstyles and hair colors to the game, and some even replace the hair textures with ones that cooperate better with different hair colors.

The Fluffy Hair Mod is a great choice if you’re looking for a mod that will add new adjusted hair models for the default hairs to keep their original shape when wearing something on the head. It’s compatible with other mods and has been tested with game version 41.71 and Hosted Multiplayer.

Spongie’s Hair is another popular choice, adding 33 new hairstyles for both body types which support B41.71+. It also works in multiplayer and removes the issue where you cannot switch to certain hairstyles in-game.

Harry’s Hair is a simple mod that adds new hairstyles and natural hair colors. It also replaces the hair textures with one that cooperates with hair colors better. However, there may be some clipping issues with hat variations.

Improved Hair Menu is a mod that replaces the hairstyle dropdown with a 3D preview. It also works on the in-game haircut menu and is compatible with any hair mods as long as they are in the dropdown.

Finally, there’s Yaki’s Hair Salon, a mod that adds 30 new hairstyles for women and men that are compatible with hats and bandanas. It’s advised to use the base game version of this mod with another mod that changes hairstyles, such as Yaki’s Hair Retexture, to avoid conflicts.
