Alternatively, the player can click to the "Worn Equipment" tab, then "Customisation" and select the Avatar, then the Hairstyles option. There they can perform all the actions that the hairdresser can, in addition to being able to change hair colour, from anywhere in the world. The hairdresser is an excellent option to go to for changing appearance, because players may change their hair colours and styles however many times they wish for free. The chairs play no part in the process and are only aesthetic.
