Hairstyles are a means of personalizing a character's appearance. They are available to players for free during Tutorial Island, but players may visit the hairdresser in Falador to change their hairstyles, after leaving the island, also for free.

Hairstyles come in a variety of different looks, each differing based on whether the character is male or female. Players can choose from a variety of styles and facial hair to exhibit on their character. Hairstyles are also available in a variety of colours, however both hair and facial hair are required to be the same colour.

Note - When receiving a new hairstyle, a player must have no headgear equipped in the head slot at the time. Also the Hairdresser will refuse to change your hairstyle if you are wielding anything in the left or right hand slots. Also note that female characters do not have the option for facial hair.

Trivia

  • The male hairstyles "Wild Spikes", "Dragon" and "Dragon Variant" are all possible references to the Japanese anime "Dragon Ball". More specifically, "Dragon Ball Z" and "Dragon Ball GT". They closely resemble the Super Saiyan hairstyle.
  • Since the release of the new hairstyles in the 9 December 2008 update, it is now possible for the male player to try 24 hairstyles, 19 facial hairstyles, and 29 colours. This results in 13224 (hairstyles x facial hairstyles x colours) different combinations.
  • Since the release of the new hairstyles in the 9 December 2008 update, it is now possible for the female player to try 33 hairstyles, and 29 colours. This results in 957 (hairstyles x colours) different combinations.
  • Most of the new hairstyles appear to have originated from Asia. This could be a reference to the Eastern Lands which seem to be mainly based on medieval Asia.
  • Many players have been combining the top knot hair style with the sensei beard with robes to make an old fashioned sensei.
  • Hair colour affects the colour of the edges of the buckle of Fighting boots when worn
  • A Runescape goatee encompasses a moustache with the connecting beard (surrounding the mouth) - this is actually considered a Van Dyke or a Circle Beard, whereas a true Goatee refers to hair only on the chin, thus resembling the tuft of hair that grows on the chin of goats, where it got its name.
  • The Name Dali for the moustache, is a Reference to Artist Salavador Dali, who wore a very similar Moustache.
  • The Mohawk is actually a 'Fauxhawk'.
  • The Earmuffs hairstyle may be a reference to Princess Leia's hair in Star Wars.
  • The Fringe hairstyle may refer to Violet in The Series of Unfortunate Events illustrations.
  • Depending on the colour of hair you choose, your eyebrows will also change to match the colour selected.
  • The Prince hairstyle greatly resembles the hair of Prince Adam from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
  • The Four Ponies hairstyle resembles Temari's hairstyle from Naruto as well as the hair of Yotsuba, the main character from Yotsuba&.
  • After the 9 November 2009 updates, there was a glitch where you could see other players getting their hairstyles changed.

Updates

  • On 13 August 2007 new hairstyles were added to the game. On the first week of its release players could change their beard or hair for free.
  • On 9 December 2008 even more new hairstyles - 12 female, 8 male, and 4 facial hair, were added to the game. On the first week of its release, players could change their beard or hair for free.
  • On 10 December 2008, Jagex performed a system update to fix some graphical glitches with the new hairstyles, including one that was caused by the pigtail style and would make a female character's head rock back and forth continuously.
  • On 28 April 2009, more hairstyles were added to the game, including the popular request for fringes on females.
  • There still is a glitch in the game known as the "Bald glitch." When players rapidly equip and unequip headgear they may become bald. This does not affect gameplay, but can be annoying and will not fix itself.
  • On 9 November 2009, seven more hairstyles were added to the game.
