Cyberpunk 2077 Hair Mod Gives Everyone a Shiny Makeover

Tired of dry, lanky Cyberpunk 2077 hair? Wish you, too, could look full of life and vigor?

If that’s you, then Cyberpunk modder MJ_Eshan has the mod for you.

MJ_Eshan created a Cyberpunk 2077 hair mod that alters how light interacts with hair to create a more realistic and certainly more vibrant hairstyle for every character.

After MJ_Eshan did some digging in the game’s files, they discovered CD Projekt RED had actually created the hairs to be 40% darker than normal.

It’s uncertain why the developers did this, but the result is something MJ believed looked far too dank and flat.

Here’s how they describe the mod and their findings:

"There is another problem with hair material. They only diffuse and/or absorb light and don't reflect it specularly. Why? Again, the dev decided to set hair roughness to 1 which means every specular reflection turns into diffuse reflection.

So I tweaked Roughness factors as well, Based on Blender3D Cycles render "Principled Hair BSDF" default values. And the third change? Well, I honestly don't know why, But I feel like it's better to tweak MultiScatter Shader a little bit as well."

The result is hair that admittedly looks like a perfect fit for Cyberpunk 2077's world — shiny and luxe, with just a touch of the futuristic.

The Cyberpunk 2077 hair mod is available on NexusMods.
