As a game that housed many players interested in glamour and fashion, Final Fantasy XIV is a game that also has a variety of hairstyles that a player can choose. A player creating their first character in FFXIV might have found many hairstyles that they can don their characters on, as well as some colors they can pick to suit the hairstyle.

In addition, after playing the game, players might have realized that several hairstyles can be bought or earned and that players can easily change their hairstyle by talking to Jandelaine through the Crystal Bell located at inns all over the city.

This article will discuss 15 of the best add-on hairstyles found all over Eorzea and will not cover the hairstyles that have already been included in the base game, as players can explore them easily only by starting the game. 

Of course, players’ opinions may differ, and this article will give some examples of some of the more popular hairstyles that players love.

 

15. Battle-Ready Bobs

A hairstyle that makes a player resemble the looks of 2B.

Many players in FFXIV might also be hardcore fans of Nier, especially Nier: Automata. This hairstyle will allow a player to resemble the looks of one of 2B’s, as this hairstyle is the exact same hairstyle that the character wears.

This hairstyle can be earned from the last Alliance Raid of the raid collaboration between Final Fantasy XIV and Nier, Tower at Paradigm’s Breach. The hairstyle will drop on the coffer upon clearing it, and players may roll on it and win if they are lucky enough.

An alternative for players who might be unlucky, have not unlocked this Alliance Raid, or just want to get it immediately can get this unique hairstyle in the Market Board for around 2-5k Gil.

 

14. Fashionably Feathered

A hairstyle that will allow a player to look as if they’re cutting their hair with only a razor.

This hairstyle is unique in terms of its looks, as short hair can make a player look messy and stylish.

However, players might need to queue up for a long time for PVP content as many players in FFXIV do not like to do it that much. However, Frontline might still have a fast queue when a server is most crowded as finishing Frontline still adds experience to the battle job a player queues it in.
