Opposite-Gender Haircuts in Animal Crossing: Wild World

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, opposite-gender haircuts first became available to players. If players got all haircuts available to their selected gender, they would then be given the option to get opposite-gender haircuts from Harriet at her Shampoodle salon. Since Wild World, opposite-gender haircuts have remained available, becoming easier to obtain in each new installment, with any haircut becoming available to players regardless of gender or style in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

We’d also like to note that the image used for this post is from Animal Crossing: City Folk. If you have a screenshot of a player character getting an opposite-gender haircut in Animal Crossing: Wild World, please let us know by emailing us at lgbtqgamearchive@gmail.com.
