Hair & beard styles in RDR 2 are not a major part of the gameplay. However, cutting hair and shaving your beard in Red Dead Redemption 2 can be important purely cosmetically. Your RDR 2 beard and hair styles can show off what kind of personality your playing; Arthur is your character to play however you feel is right. Our Red Dead Redemption 2 How to Cut Hair & Shave Beard guide will show you exactly that, and also explain how getting different beard and hair styles works.
How to Cut Hair & Shave Beard in RDR 2?
To cut your hair and / or shave your beard in Red Dead Redemption 2, you have to find the appropriate location. For one, you can go to your tent in the camp, and you can shave there. Alternatively, if you wanna get real highfalutin and fancy, you can go to a barber shop. Every major town will have a barber shop, marked with a pair of scissors on the map. For example, there’s Smithfield’s Saloon in the center of Valentine. The barber is in the back of the saloon. Also, barbers have the red-and-white poles in front of their store.
As for the different styles of beard, mustache, and hair, you can check out the lists of different possible options in our video below. There are eleven different options for the hair, and a whole bunch more beards and mustaches. The important thing to keep in mind is that your beard has to be long enough to pull off some of the bear styles. If your beard is too short, toggling the various styles will show you basically no change. However, the small icons on the side will give you the general idea of how those styles look. Personally, I find the combo of bald, clean-shaven Arthur the most hilarious, but that’s just me.
That’ll do it for the hair and beard portion of RDR 2. In case you need help with any other part of the game, you can browse our list of Red Dead Redemption 2 guides.
