Using a mod to change your hairstyle in Cyberpunk 2077 – Step-by-step guide

Customization in any open-world or RPG game is a crucial aspect of the overall experience. Unfortunately, in Cyberpunk 2077, the ability to change your character’s hairstyle is noticeably absent. This has frustrated many fans, but thankfully, the modding community has come to the rescue. With a simple mod, you can now modify your hairstyle in the game. Mods are an integral part of PC gaming, enhancing the overall gameplay experience. In fact, there are already numerous mods available for Cyberpunk 2077 that offer quality of life improvements, such as implementing a walk button.

To change your hairstyle in Cyberpunk 2077, follow the steps outlined below:

1. Visit Nexus Mods and download the mod files (Please note that signing up is required).
2. Extract the downloaded files using compression software like Winrar or 7zip.
3. Open the CyberpunkhairstyleGUI.exe application.
4. Click on “Open File” to access your save file browser.
5. Prior to proceeding further, we highly recommend creating a backup of your saved files. This step is crucial, as this mod may potentially corrupt your existing save files.
6. After creating the backup, open the latest save file using either the manually created save or an autosave. The file should be named “sav.dat”.
7. Choose your current hairstyle and the new hairstyle from the provided options. For reference, you can consult the accompanying images of male and female V hairstyles in the game.
8. Ensure that the current hairstyle selection is accurate to ensure the mod functions correctly.
9. Click on “Overwrite Save with new Hairstyle”. A prompt will appear, and you can safely select “Yes” since you have already created a backup of your saved files. It is crucial to emphasize that without a backup, you may potentially lose your saved files.
10. Congratulations! You have successfully changed your hairstyle in Cyberpunk 2077. We hope that the developers eventually incorporate an in-game option for hairstyle changes. However, in the meantime, this mod offers the simplest solution. Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask them in the comments section below.
