One of the more interesting features of RuneScape is the ability to give your character a makeover. If you decide that you would rather like a new set of clothes, a different haircut or a better tan, the good people of RuneScape are here to help.
If, on the other hand, you'd prefer to do it yourself, you could try building a house
. Some of the items that you can construct in your Bedroom
enable you to change your appearance.
The Hairdresser lives in Falador and can be found by keeping an eye out for his spinning, candy-striped barber's pole. For two thousand coins he will gladly remodel your hair into the latest fashion, as well as providing a free colour treatment. Of course, his skills are not limited to cutting the hairs on top of your head: he is fully trained in the art of beard trimming.
Changing your hair or beard
Note that men have a second option on the interface which will change the options to beard-trimming and dying. To change your hair or beard, select both the design and the colour you like and click the thumbs-up icon. All haircuts are free, and men - whose hairstyles are simpler - can also have their facial hair redesigned with every haircut. If you change your mind and decide that you are actually quite pleased with your hair or beard, simply click the X in the top right corner.
Thessalia is a long-standing resident of Varrock, with a history of supplying clothes to some of the city's finest citizens.

For a 1000 coin fee she will work on your upper body and your legs.
Changing your wardrobe
To change your clothes - either for your upper body or your legs - select both the design and the colour you like and click the thumbs-up icon. Your changes will cost 1000 coins.

Location of the Makeover Mage
One of the strangest characters you might encounter, and without peer in RuneScape, the Makeover Mage is the only man - or woman - capable of changing either your gender or your skin colour. If you ever feel the urge to experience the other side of the gender divide, or to change your suntan, then the Makeover Mage's excellent all-in-one service is certainly for you. For the sum of 3,000 coins you can engage his/her talents and emerge from his/her house as a completely new person.
To change your gender click on one of the two portraits; by default this is set to your current gender. To change your skin colour select the colour you like from the bar in the middle of the window. Make sure you have chosen both your gender and your skintone before clicking 'Confirm': the Makeover Mage is friendly, but not noted for giving out refunds. Changing either or both of these will cost 3,000 coins. If you change your mind and decide that you are actually quite pleased with your body as it is, simply click the X in the top right corner.
Location of the photo booth
The photo booth is located right near the Makeover Mage's house. Through the power of its magic you'll be able to take a snapshot of how you look - whatever you're wearing/wielding and how you look at the time - and display that snapshot next to any posts you make on the forums. For more information on the photo booth, its location and how to use it, read the Controls - Photo Booth
