The guide explains how to change your student after starting the game. Several methods exist to change your character’s appearance after you start the game and leave character creation. Let’s take a look.

Players can change their appearance by visiting the special barber shop in Hogsmeade, Madam Snelling’s Tress Emporium. It offers many options, similar to the character creation menu. However, after leaving the character creation menu and start of the game, players can adjust the character’s clothing, accessories, hairstyle and hair color, but not permanent face features.

Last updated February 22, 2023. Players can enjoy Hogwarts Legacty for a couple of weeks now, and each day more details and secrets are uncovered. We updated the guide to provide all the methods to change Character’s appearance.

To change your protagonist’s appearance, open the map and pick Hogsmeade. Nextly look for a scissors icon, as shown in the picture above, and head to Madam Snelling’s Tress Emporium. Talk to Madam Snelling, and you’ll be charged 20 gold per visit regardless of what you’ll change in your character. You won’t need to pay if you discard changes and leave the menu. The things you can change:

  • Hair
  • Hair color
  • Complexion
  • Freckles and Moles
  • Eye color
  • Eyebrows shape
  • Eyebrows color
  • Scars and Markings

How to change my Robes and Accessories in Hogwarts Legacy

You can change your robes and accessories at any time during the game. As you progress and collect items, you’ll unlock more fantastic cosmetics. Every gear item you pick will also be added to your collections, so you can safely sell gear you don’t need and put a skin on your new gear with the same look.

Change the look of your gear, like scarves, robes or glasses, any time in the game while keeping the best stat gear equipped. Open your gear menu, hover over the gear you want to change, and, as you can see in the picture below, click the option: “change appearance.”

It will take you to a separate menu where you can pick a new skin from all items you collected since the beginning of the game, even if you sold some of them. It’s like a skin you put over a gear item to change its look.

Additionally, don’t forget to check all categories in the challenges menu occasionally. Completed achievements also can reward you with new robes, gear pieces or furniture for your Room of Requirement. The picture below shows my challenges menu and rewards I can collect for completed quests.

Where can I find more appearance options and collectibles for my character?

If you are a collector like me and often customise your character, I suggest exploring the game and checking every chest. Specifically, good places to look for are hidden rooms behind the Puzzle door (Puzzle Door Guide Here). Also, when looking for the next quest to follow, check the rewards it offers because many missions in Hogwarts Legacy reward players with new wand handles, robes and more!
