Death Stranding: How to Change Sam's Hair Style

Here's how to change Sam's hair in Death Stranding.

In Death Stranding, protagonist Sam likes to tie up his hair in something of a man bun while he's out in the field. But if you're not a great fan of this hair style, and you'd rather revert it back to Norman Reedus' typical shaggy get up, you can pull this off with one neat trick.

Death Stranding: How to Change Sam's Hair

Whenever Sam's out in the open world of Death Stranding, he'll always tie his hair back. We've got some opinions on this look in general, most of which center around the fact that he looked better earlier on in the game.

Although there's no actual way to permanently change Sam's hair style in the game, there is one trick that you can do to temporarily alter his hair. First, head to any distribution center in the game, and enter your private room using the delivery terminal.

Now look over to the table where the Monster Energy Drinks are stored, and hone in on the table. Instead of drinking the Monster, choose to equip either the sunglasses or goggles on the table.

Doing this will actually change Sam's hair back to how it was at the start of the game. Keep in mind that this will only last until the next time you're in a private room, when you'll have to equip either the sunglasses or goggles again to keep the hair changed, for the next time you venture out.
