Modder gives Cyberpunk 2077 in-game haircuts

It was a snip.

A modder has done what CD Projekt didn't: added in-game haircuts to Cyberpunk 2077.

I was surprised to discover Cyberpunk 2077 does not let you change the haircut of your character beyond character creation. Night City is packed to bursting with food stalls, but there isn't a usable salon in sight.

Enter woodbricks, a modder who has created a working in-game haircuts mod for Cyberpunk 2077 on PC (grab it from NexusMods).

It's worth noting this mod only works with the female body type V, although woodbricks promises a male version is coming soon. But it does let you change hairstyle of your character any time in-game and for any save file.

The mod includes a hairstyle reference text file, which itself contains the hex values for all 38 female hairstyles available to V. The 39th option is a bald style, and if you created a bald character, you cannot change your hair with the mod.

It's also worth noting all hairstyles can be swapped between the male and female body types. But woodbricks warns that due to character model head sizes, most hairstyles do not fit nicely on the opposite sex.

The mod was only uploaded 19th December, but it's already had over 1000 downloads. I expect its popularity to grow over time.
