@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.

Hi! I just started writing on the online platform, and I’m so confused! I have so many questions! How do I let my readers choose their character’s name? And how do I move the character to center stage? How do I preview a chapter on my computer, because right now when I press preview it just pops up as a black rectangle. This is all so confusing! :thinking::no_mouth:
