This may not be a big deal for most hair styles, but with Vekks hair for asuras, it is a problem. The bandanna it extremely noticeable, and you can not change the color of it after your character creation. So basically, if you pick a blue bandanna, the rest of your armor must match that or else it looks tacky. Luckily I caught this in beta, and know not to use Vekks hair style, which sadly is my favorite besides that. Is there anyway you know of to change it in game.

We don't know if we will be able to change it later in game. When I choose hair with some kind of accessory, I just make sure to get the most neutral color. Try choosing black, white or browns or match accessory with hair color. That way is less noticeable.

I assume there will be a cash shop item like a makeover kit, especially if there's enough demand for it down the road. Basically, it would give you the chance to completely rework your character's look.

I hope they add this... I had the same hairstyle for my Asura and I wanted to change the color of my armor but I had to decide against it because it looked horrible with my bandanna.  Just a simple dye slot for headpieces would be great!

I agree, some sort of barber shop type thing where you can pay a small fee to alter, at least, the color of your hair accessory, if not your hair style as well, would be great.

I made it a point to choose a neutral colored accessory during character creation just so I could make sure it would match as many different sets I made as possible.

They should allow us to change the color of it in the hero panel since it's just an accessory... an accessory that pretty much determines how we dye our armor.  All those really awesome dyes to choose from once we get into the game and we're pretty much stuck with purple armor forever because we picked a purple hair accessory during character creation?  Bah.  Going with a neutral color is obviously an option, but the colors closest to black and white aren't really black or white.  The black option is actually brown and it didn't look all that great next to dark auburn hair.  The white option is actually grey.  At least that's the case with the hairstyle I picked.

I'm fine with making us use the gem store to change the hair color and style, but making us pay to change the color of the accessory would seem a bit greedy.  I wouldn't be totally against an NPC that charged a small fee (coins) to change this, but that's as far as I would go with it.  Letting us change it in the hero panel would be preferable since that's where we dye everything else.

A barber shop would be great. Especially if you get bored of your hairstyle and want to change it.

New faces/hair options might end up being in cash shop sometime huh?

I would hope that hair, and all things to do with it (style, color, accessory color) would changeable at will at an NPC of some sort for a small fee of coin.

But I really doubt it will. Considering that this game needs microtranscations to stay afloat and that the gems, which would most likely be necessary to purchase such a change, can be bought with coin, I see no reason to not set it up as part of the gem store from a business point of view.

There's no doubt in my mind that the option to exchange gems for makeovers or wigs will be available in the future!  I just hope there will be a way to change the accessory color without needing to use gems.  We can change the color of the starter armor once we get into the game, why not the hair accessory?

A barber shop would be very welcome (I also went with the vekk hair style), just to change hair style / color. Any other changes to appearance should be cash shop items.

Oh yes, I encountered this with the hairstyle of my little Asura (the pom-poms, same style the Asura in my avatar is wearing). It would be really great if we could die the hairpieces with the dyes we've actually collected on that specific character. If I color my entire gear in lemon yellow or rose pink, then it'd be just lovely to have the option to dye my hair piece the same color.

Otherwise, most people probably won't use anything but blacks or beiges on the bigger hairpieces :/

Part the problem if that you can only pick from the default colour palette for the accessory, so once your palette options evolve, your hair cannot :(

I don't think it'd kill them to add a barber that is seperate from a full on cash-shop character makeover

I completely avoided any hair with accesories for this very reason. So I cannot possibly be against it. But I think the full hairstyle change should still be a cashshop thing along with other makeovers. But! we should be able to change the color of the accesorie... most definitely. Then maybe I will choose the hairstyle I actually like the best for my asura.
