Square Enix are planning to release the first update patch for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, patch version 2.1, on December 17th, the publisher revealed in a recent video Q&A with producer Naoki Yoshida.


Among the many improvements and additions in the patch will be the ability to use beauty salons to change the appearance of your in-game character. Square fielded a few questions on this topic during the Q&A. Take a look at them below.


Q: Are there any limitations to the number of times a player can use the beauty salon?

A: No, there are no limitations.


Q: Besides hairstyles, what other things can you change?

A: Hair color, eyebrows, face paint, face paint color, facial hair, facial features, and tattoos. The team is also carefully adjusting skin color and eye color as they have racial aspects.


Q: Will there be more beauty salon options added in the future?

A: We currently plan on implementing additional options through our future patches. Please note that every patch will be focused on a specific race. In addition, players will be able to choose hairstyles from other races. Please stay tuned!
