Splatoon 3’s hairstyles are also more varied than ever before, giving players a greater degree of customization options. Curly, short, long, braided and so many other hairstyles are present.

Inkling hairstyles

The Chanel hairstyle dates back to the beginning of the last century, but is still widely used today. You can use it for your Inkling if you want to give it a classic yet striking look.

Cornrows are a traditional braiding style in which the hair is braided very close to the scalp, a style widely used by a lot of people in the real world.


Hippie Inkling hairstyles Splatoon 3

The Hippie look is a slick look, with bangs and very long. This is probably the most well-known hairstyle, as it has been present since the first game in the franchise.

Moreover, it’s the look that the Captain of the New Squidbeak Splatoon still rocks to this day!

The Banger is an identical look to the Hippie, but with longer, straighter bangs. By using this haircut, you will hide your eyebrows and look very childlike.


If you’re wearing glasses, this is the most classic hipster look. Hair combed to one side offers an ordinary yet stylish look for the paint shootout.


Megalobraid Inkling hairstyles Splatoon 3

The classic ponytail is a hairstyle that mixes the original Inkling hair with a braid to give it a more modern look. The result is beautiful hair that blends two styles into one. If you’re an old-school Splatoon fan, you might be shocked at how trendy these hairstyles are becoming!

Messy Bob

As the name suggests, the messy bob is for anyone who likes a good mess, in the good sense of the word. The look has a wilder appeal for those looking to add some personality to their Inkling.

Fans of Toad can honor him with this hair option, which is super popular among the younger generation. It’s a classic look that almost every kid has worn, and it’s all about Splatoon.

This type of hair reminds us of our childhood. Who never had a school friend who wore her hair that way? You can use this cute and fashionable look to make your opponents underestimate your skill.


Samurai Inkling hairstyles Splatoon 3

The look is so named because it resembles the look of ancient Japanese samurai, with hair tied up and tied up in a bun. It’s a very menacing style, but only for those who like this kind of look.


Double-bun Inkling hairstyles Splatoon 3

It’s identical to the samurai style, but with two ties up instead of just one, plus a few strands on the side of the face. This makes your Inkling look more elongated and flashy.

Slicked back

Slicked Back Inkling hairstyle Splatoon 3

Slicked back hair is ideal for the most sophisticated Inklings, who like to be neat and don’t leave a hair out of place. If you go for this preppy look, you might want to stay away from the action, so you don’t stain your hair with ink. After all, it must be a lot of work to use so much gel to make your hair look like this.


Slick Inkling hairstyle Splatoon 3

A hair that mixes a quiff on top with a shaved side. It’s a very different look, with a strong presence and a style that is impossible not to be noticed in battle.


Spiky-Haired hairstyle Splatoon 3

Spiked hair is a popular real-world style, particularly among young people, so it was expected that Splatoon 3 would have a reproduction. The character adopts a pointy demeanor that will definitely catch the eye of their rivals.


Wave Inkling hairstyle Splatoon 3

The wave style is a feminine classic, in which the hair is completely combed to one side, giving a smooth effect. In Splatoon 3, you can use it to give your character a special touch.

Braided pigtails are an iconic look that many people wore as a child. This is an ideal choice for anyone who wants a cuter appearance for their Octoling.


Tentacurl octoling hairstyle Splatoon 3

The Tentacurl haircut is very similar to the Tentatwists, but with a smoother look. The stretched tentacles give a childish, but very cute, look to the character.


Surfcurl octoling hairstyle Splatoon 3

The quiff is a haircut that few can handle, because it takes a lot of styling and hair gel to shape it. The look draws attention for its volume, but can be even more impactful with flashy colors.

An Octoling with Quiff hair will likely be found strolling around Blackbelly Skatepark in a faded denim jacket and funky sneakers.


Fade octoling hairstyle Splatoon 3

The shaved back and sides hairstyle is very popular in the real world. The look has a modern style that mixes shorter hair with a voluminous part on top. You should probably see some Octoling splashing paint down Eeltail Alley with this super trendy look.

The wave hairstyle is one of the most traditional in the game, as it features a more laid-back and artistic style. Even so, it takes an Octoling with a lot of personality to wear this stylish hair.


Punk octoling hairstyle Splatoon 3

A stylish tentacle mohawk in the middle accompanied by a very low haircut all around. This is the Octoling’s punk look and it’s pretty intimidating to enemies.

The classic ponytail in a more elegant version. If you like being fancy, then this is the most eye-catching look for your Octoling character to enchant enemies.

These are all the Splatoon 3 hairstyles known so far. The game provides a wide variety of hairstyles for all players. But we’d say that the members of Deep Cut have even cooler hairstyles that we wish we could get our hands on – well… aside from Big Man.
