Why are some races not getting the new hair?

Human females are at least one race I know of that did not receive any new hair styles. Why is this? Does blizzard have any plans of giving us new hair styles too? Were we supposed to get them but for some reason it was bugged?

Any other races out there feeling like they were cheated too? I want to know.

Orcs also didn't get new hair lol. Pretty funny the 2 main warcraft races didn't get new hair styles. Could be worse, a good number of new hair styles are ugly anyway.

Female humans currently have the most hairstyles out of any race/gender in the game, with 23 options. The next highest is blood elf females with 19, after getting a new one in the patch.

Meanwhile, trolls of both genders only had 9 each before the patch. Human females were not a priority this time around.

I got mine, but frankly, every race should be given a minimum of 5 more hairstyles in the next patch.


Also, they need to update armory. Too many bald people.

Um, orc females got three new styles and orc males got one.

Blizzard probably wanted to balance things a bit by adding hairstyles to races that had less options to choose from; like gnomes and night elves. I'd honestly like to see more variety in hair colors and styles, or even the ability to choose hairstyles from the opposite faction. I'm very jealous of goblins right now...

Funnily enough, goblins are actually in the middle of the pack in terms of available hairstyles. It's just that each one of them is so much more distinct and high quality compared to a lot of the other races.

Blizzard should just let all hairstyles go to all races.

It would make their life easier.

Though how that would work with femtaurs, who knows.

It's not the amount of hairstyles that goblins have, it's the styles themselves. I'd love for my gnome chic to have some of the hair options that goblin femmes get.

I just feels sad to see the other races with fun new hairstyles to play with when some other races didn't get them. But it does make sense that humans already have more so they are lower on the priority list I guess. =(

Actualy, No. They planned to give orc (or atleast orc male) a new hair style, but if you look. They didn't give them it. I have 3 orcs. and checked them all.

Give male and female worgen their hairstyles from their alpha models, imo.
Currently they're going to gnomes. :/

Are you not familiar with all the hairstyles that were there previously? I looked at all the female Orc hairstyles, and I actually didn't see even one new one. In fact, nor male or female Orc... neither have new hairstyles.

Weird. This patch is out and so should the hairstyles.. but I can't find them, at creation or the barber.

There's a blue post around here somewhere that says the ones on PTR aren't scrapped, they just didn't all get the final Quality Stamp of Approval from the art team and will likely be polished and go in later.

Wear a helm and all of this goes away, for you can't see your hair style.

Female Draenei got one, and it's horrible.

They did have to take some of the hairstyles out because they weren't as good as Blizzard wanted. Remember that 30 mb download? That removed some hairstyles, one of them was a nelf female style and the avatar would appear bald on the forums. I can confirm it cause I saw a bald nelf women. Kinda creepy.

I'd at least like worgen mane colors to match their skin colors more noticeably.

I've yet to see a new hairstyle that isn't atrocious, so I am not concerned for my humans that didn't get a thing I would never use.
