Hairstyles are a way of changing the look of your character. You can change them by visiting a barber or stylist. In Fable and Fable: The Lost Chapters, you can get special style cards to show a barber to change your look. In Fable II and Fable III, most hairstyles must be purchased directly from the stylist. Like tattoos, all hairstyles have effects on your personality.

Personality[]

Hairstyles have the ability to affect a number of aspects of your personality, including alignment, scariness and attractiveness. Depending on the hairstyle, some may change you more than others.

Fable and Fable TLC[]

Quests[]

3 different hairstyles are required to complete the Beardy Baldy quest in Bowerstone Quay. You can go to the barber shop around the corner in Bowerstone South to get them. (If you already have these styles, the "father" will request to see alternatives.)

Fable II[]

Demon Door[]

One of two Hairstyles is required to open the Brightwood Demon Door in Fable II. You must locate a stylist and get the hairstyle he requires:

In addition one of two Facial hair is required.

  • Mutton Chop Whiskers "The Chops"(can be bought at The Beautification Factory in Bowerstone Market or at Greta's Cosmetics on Knothole Island)
  • The Handlebar (also available in Bowerstone Market)

Similar to the Beardy Baldy quest in Fable, if you approach the door wearing any of these already, he will assign you a different hairstyle. Likewise, if you already are wearing any of the clothing items he typically requires, he will also request others.

Notes[]

  • Once the quest In Wolf's Clothing is active, the only items that appear in Moustache Mansions' inventory are the quest related items. The shop's inventory returns to normal after the quest is completed.
  • Dying the Short Ponytail Hairstyle highlights causes several streaks throughout the top of the head to become another colour, while dying the main body affects the rest

Trivia[]

  • Despite the Mercenary Beard being a fairly standard goatee, because of its inexplicable association with bandits, it is considered unattractive by most of the citizens of Albion.
    • When putting on the beard in the sanctuary, Jasper will sometimes remark, "That beard should be a real boon if you're seeking a job in the technology sector." This is possibly a reference to Gordon Freeman's goatee in Valve's Half-Life series, or perhaps to the iconic scruffy goatee sported by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
  • The Long Bun Hairstyle is very similar to the pouf hairstyle made popular in the 18th century by Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France.
  • The Short Fringe Hairstyle is the same hairstyle as Elliot.
  • The Hero has a Short Parted Hairstyle at the start of the game
  • All facial hairstyles in Fable III have a 20.0% transvestism rating for female Heroes.[1]
  • The Long Thick Hairstyle can be used by male or female Heroes for the Dye Hippie, Dye achievement.[2]
