A barbershop is a place where players are able to alter their hair style, hair color and other facial features (such as facial hair and horns). It was introduced in patch 3.0.2 (Wrath of the Lich King).

Formerly the home of Sween Neetod the Barber, Naznik Sharpshear has taken his place and this goblin will be more than happy to give you a great shave and a haircut.


  • The cost of changing hairstyles varies by the character's level, ranging from a couple of  ssilver for a low level player to 85g for a level 100.
  • Level 1 characters can change hairstyles for free, assuming you skip all the starting quests and go straight to the barber.
  • Very few of the hairstyles are actually new. They are taken from and added to different races and genders.
  • At least one member of the Blizzard team is rooting for a specific hairstyle. Bornakk wants mohawks for every race, both male and female.[1] He not only wants mohawks, he wants huge mohawks.
  • Tauren can change skin tone, since they don't have hairstyles.
  • Druids change hair/skin colour in order to change bear and cat form color combinations.
