Hairstyles in Skyrim

Post » Sun Mar 06, 2011 5:17 pm

I don't know too much about Skyrim just yet, but what is known of the hairstyles that will be in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim?

Oblivion had a handful of selections for each gender, and some were different depending on one's race. Can we expect to see many of the Oblivion hairstyles return as well? What about new ones? Feel free to suggest your own ideas for Skyrim's hair selection in the character creation, or anything regarding hair.

Here are some hairstyles that I would like to see make it into the game:

1. Bald (yes, even if it is not hair. My first Elder Scrolls character ever was a bald Imperial in Morrowind. He was an assassin/agent class too, modelled after the Hitman series' Agent 47)
2. Curtains (the hairstyle frequently worn by adventurer, rogue types in movies. Two examples are Rick O'Connell from The Mummy movies, and Johnny Depp in Public Enemies. There's no reason to believe that curtained hair couldn't exist in the Elder Scrolls world either)
3. Pompadour or slicked back haircut (it was in Oblivion, and Fallout even had it. I like this one, it's one of the coolest, most interesting styles)

And not really a hairstyle all on its own, but:

4. Sideburns (the option to edit sideburn length, width, and thickness would be awesome. It would be realistic for the Elder Scrolls setting too, as sideburns could exist on these people, either naturally, or for reasons of stylistic preference)
