  • At Hogsmeade in Hogwarts Legacy, you can visit various shops that cater to almost anything. To change your character appearance, just visit a hairdresser. Where to find one? Just head to Hogsmeade and search for Madam Snelling’s Tress Emporium. To navigate it on the Hogwarts Legacy map, look for an icon of a pair of scissors.
  • On the other hand, if you want to change your outfits and gears, then you should simply head to the Wizard’s Field Guide which you acquired early on in the game. Once you head into the pause screen, change your outfit on the Gear tab. Freely choose any gears that you unlocked as you progressed, that’s it!

Does changing appearance in Hogwarts Legacy have a price?

  • Fortunately, if you plan to only change your outfits and add gears, you don’t need to worry about Gold Galleons. As long as you have the item unlocked, you can use it anytime and anywhere you want, free of charge.
  • But, we can’t say the same for other features of your characters. If you wish to change appearance at Madam Snelling’s Tress Emporium in Hogwarts Legacy, of course, she has to do business. Don’t worry, you’ll be needing 20 Gold Galleons for each character feature you wish to change in the game.
