How To Customise Your Character In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

New Horizons broke the frustrating Animal Crossing tradition by replacing the appearance quiz with a character customisation screen.

Rather than having the appearance of facial features being decided after talking to a cat, you can literally just pick your nose (ha ha).

You'll be able to decide your:

  • Skin colour
  • Hairstyle
  • Hair colour
  • Eyes
  • Eye colour
  • Nose
  • Mouth
  • Cheeks

So How Do You Change Your Face And Hairstyle In Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

If you want to change both your face and hairstyle in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you're gonna need to build a vanity table or mirror.

To build a basic full length mirror you need both its DIY recipe and:

5x Wood
1x Iron Nugget
Once you've built this, place it in your house or around the island and then interact with it.

You'll be returned to the character customisation and can alter your appearance in any way you like.
