Is there a way to change some ones hair for one part only?

@YOU changes hair into Hair Style

That’s all ^^

You can change the hair style back by writing that command again in your script but replacing Hair Style with one that exists.

Ok, Thank you

No problem :balloon:

This is all so confusing! :thinking::no_mouth:
