ACNL HAIR GUIDE: How to do the hairstyles of the characters in Animal Crossing


Animal Crossing is a game about making friends, exploring your town and collecting things. It’s also the perfect place to add some flair to your character’s hairstyle. The only problem is that the game doesn’t give you too many options—I mean, it’s a Nintendo game, after all. Luckily for us, there are other ways of getting hairstyles besides just waiting around at the barber’s shop or salon (which can take hours). Here are some tips on how to do each character’s hair in ACNL:

1. Customize your hairstyle at the salon.

2. Visit a friend’s town and have them customize your hair for you.

3. Buy items from Able Sisters’ shop to give yourself new hairstyles (like this hat).

4. Use some of the customization options available in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on mobile devices (this is a great way to get some inspiration).


Isabelle has a ponytail, which means that she wears her hair in a bun at the top of her head. Her hair is brown, and her hair clip is a bow. It’s on the left side of her head, so if you’re looking at Isabelle from behind (so that you can see all three sides), it will be on your right as well.

If we could see her face-on, it would look like this: This is a great hairstyle for people who want to wear their hair down but still want it to be tied back in some way. You can also wear this hairstyle with a bandana or headband if you want something more casual.

Tom Nook

Tom Nook’s hairstyle is one of the most popular, and it’s easy to do. All you need is a short haircut or facial hair, then use the hair clip to pull back your character’s hair into a ponytail. You can also put in some twists at the end for extra flair!

  • To get Tom Nook’s hair clip, go see him at Nookington’s (his store) and buy it for 898 Bells (or 1 Leaf Ticket). You’ll find his shop on Main Street if you’re playing Village Life; otherwise, he’ll be at Re-Tail in New Leaf.
  • Move your character so that they face away from you while wearing their new outfit–this will make it easier to see what needs clipping later on because there won’t be any shadows covering anything up when we start working with this particular accessory item later down below within this guide section!

Lyle (the player’s uncle)

Lyle is the player’s uncle and runs Nookling Junction. He has a moustache and wears a yellow shirt, green pants, and brown shoes. His hair is short but messy on the sides.

Kapp’n and Leila


Leila’s hair is a ponytail, but she has her bangs pulled back. She wears a yellow visor and sunglasses to protect herself from the sun and sand.


Kapp’n’s hair is styled as a mullet, which means his hair is long on top but short in back. He also has sideburns that extend down past his ears.

Reese and Cyrus

The hair clip is a simple accessory that can be added to your character’s hair. It can be placed in several different ways, depending on where you want it to go.

The first way is by putting it in the middle of your character’s head. To do this, simply click on one of your characters’ heads and then click “accessory” (you may have to scroll down). From there, select “hair clip”. You’ll then see four options: left side, right side, back and top/center. Select whichever one you want!

Katrina and Copper (Nook’s Cranny employees)

Katrina and Copper have the same hairstyle, which is short and red. Their hair is parted in the middle, making it easy to tell them apart!

Katrina’s hair curls at her forehead while Copper’s flips out toward his temples.

Both employees of Nook’s Cranny have their part on one side or another, but Katrina’s is farther away from her face than Copper’s.

You can get a lot of different hairstyles by moving the hair clip in various patterns.

If you’re just starting out, it’s best to stick with the same style for all your villagers until you have enough money to buy more hair clips. You can unlock new styles by playing games at Nook’s Homes and at Able Sisters.

I hope this guide has been helpful to you in your quest to find the perfect hairstyle. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
