I don't know about you, but when a game gives me several ways to customize my character, I tend to get a bit side-tracked from the actual story and spend hours figuring out how to make my character look good. It's a bit of a problem, and the new Pokémon Sun and Moon games don't do anything to help cure me of it.

See, in addition to offering lots of apparel with which to customize your character, the games also have a salon wherein you can cut and/or color your character's hair. Unfortunately, you don't actually get to see what the hair styles and colors look like until after you've gone through with the change.

Which is why I've gone through the trouble of trying them all and putting them on display here so you can decide which is the right look for you!

(Looking for the male hair styles? We have 'em on display here! How about all of the contact and lipstick colors? Yup, we have those too!)

All The Different Hair Colors In 'Sun and Moon'

Before diving into the hair colors, it's worth noting that in addition to style and color, you can also choose to have your bangs off to the side or straight down. This first set of images uses the former, while the next set (styles) uses the latter. The option to change your bangs comes with any purchase of a hair cut.

Speaking of which, haircuts cost 4,000 Pokémon dollars, hair dyeing costs 2,000 Pokémon dollars, and doing both at once will cost 5,000 Pokémon dollars (saving you a bit in the process). Now, with that out of the way, let's take a look at the different color options available — and if you already like your hair color, skip on down to the hair styles section below!

Black (top left), Honey Blond (top right), and Dark Brown (bottom)

Ash Brown (left) and Caramel Blond (right)

Platinum Blond (left) and Pink Brown (right)

As you can see, the game offers a fairly standard color palette for hair. And while there's nothing wrong with that, I wouldn't mind seeing options expanded in an update. After all, my Pokémon GO character has some kickass purple hair, why not have it in these games, too? Until then, there are still more ways to customize your look that will surely keep me busy.

All The Different Hair Styles In 'Sun and Moon'

Like the hair colors, there are seven different styles available. Keep in mind, these images are all using the straight-bangs option, but you'll be able to place your bangs to the side if you want.

(The one exception to this is the cornrow braided bun option, which...well, hard to do cornrows and bangs at the same time.)

Chin-length Bob

Short and Bobbed & Long and Straight

Medium and Wavy & Romantic Tuck

Long and Wavy & Cornrow Braided Bun

And there ya have it! My personal favorite combination is the pink brown hair with the romantic tuck and bangs off to the side, but I'm sure I'll get bored and change it eventually.

What's your favorite cut/color combination for your Sun and Moon character?
