Keep in mind, the Face Guide is only for the face. If you would like to change your hair, please visit the Hair Guide. Shampoodle also expands to contact lenses where you will be able to change your eye color. See Eye Guide.

Answers to Rover on the train to your village can't later be changed, so it is good to prepare in advance. First, think of a good village name.

To either be male or female, after you write your name you can either say that it is 'Cool' (male) or 'Cute' (female). If you have chosen the wrong gender (e.g. male instead of female) there is an option directly after to swap the genders, by stating your gender outright. (I'm a Boy!/ I'm a Girl!) This is very much like previous Animal Crossing games, so experienced Animal Crossing players will have no problem working this out.

Another important decision is your face, for only the hair style and colours of hair & eyes can be changed later.
The number of facial shapes has increased from sixteen to 24. Despite the photo below, various eye colours come with your choice, as in earlier Animal Crossings. There is black, light brown, light blue, and green. These can be changed later, as Shampoodle expands into coloured contact lenses.

Your face is also your starting shirt / pants / skirt.

Here are the questions and resulting faces:

Question 1: So this (Name of town), have you been there before?
Question 2: So why are you going there anyway?
Question 3: Oh, so you're probably going to move there, aren't you?
