Splatoon 3 Hairstyles: All Options & Color Guide

Do the hairdo that’s right for you.


You’ll need to decide between playing as an Inkling or an Octoling initially. Although they have different personalities, eyes, and haircuts, the two do not vary in terms of gameplay. While Octolings have separated eyes and thicker, rounder hair, Inklings have linked eyes and smoother hair.

You can pick either option on the left side to play as an Inkling or either option on the right to play as an Octoling when the game first launches. From there, you may select the appropriate hairdo.

There are 24, including 8 for Octolings and 16 for Inklings. Below are screenshots and the entire list of the available hairstyles.

Can You Change Hair Color?

What you can’t alter is your hair color. Hair color changes automatically every time you log into the game and then again at the start of the match, where it always matches your team’s ink color.

How to Change Hairstyles

Though you pick your hairstyle during character creation before ever setting foot in Splatsville, you can change it at any point after you arrive in the city, too. To do exactly that follow these easy steps:

  • First, open the equipment menu by pressing “+”
  • Navigate to the other menu (fourth option).
  • From here you can use “L” and “R” to navigate to the Style Tab.


The Style tab will allow you to change your hairstyle as well as your eyebrow style. You can also change your pants from this tab at any point when you are in Splatsville.

Those are all of the current hairstyles in Splatoon 3, but make sure to check out our other Splatoon 3 guides for more tips and tricks, including How To Change Skin Color In Splatoon 3
