Changing appearance in Hogwarts Legacy

Changing one’s appearance in Hogwarts Legacy is fairly straightforward but requires just a bit of in-game cash to achieve.

Players can find barbershops or beauticians in the various major towns around the game’s open world. The earliest example of this is in Hogsmeade, which players will first visit with either Sebastian Sallow or Natsai Onai during the main story.

Madam Snelling’s Tress Emporium in Hogsmeade allows players to change their appearance in Hogwarts Legacy.

Players who want to change their appearance can go to Madam Snelling’s Tress Emporium in Hogsmeade and speak with the shop’s owner, Calliope Snelling.

Here witches and wizards can change their hair color, hairstyle, complexion, eye color, and eyebrow shape for 20 Galleons. In towns outside of Hogsmeade, simply check the map screen and look for a shop icon with a pair of scissors on it. That shop will also allow players to change their appearance.

What can’t you change again in Hogwarts Legacy?

It is important to note that there are character traits players can’t change after starting the game. You will be unable to change your voice tone, pitch, face shape, skin color, and dormitory assignment. This means that some aspects of the character appearance in Hogwarts Legacy cannot be changed post initial character creation.

It’s also worth mentioning that despite the controversy surrounding Hogwarts Legacy involving J.K. Rowling’s comments about the trans community, Avalanche Software has given fans plenty of gender-neutral options to utilize when creating a character.

So to sum things up, if you simply want to try out a new hairstyle or add freckles to your student, you can do so at any time. However, more permanent aspects of a character must be finalized during the initial character creation screen.

And that’s everything fans need to know about changing your appearance in Hogwarts Legacy. Those looking for more Hogwarts Legacy guides can find them listed below:
