black women hairstyles

i know i probably wont get a lot of support for this, but there needs to be more and better options when it comes to black women's hairstyles...why isnt there a Zazie Beetz style afro (Domino from deadpool 2), or a ponytail puff? there is a plethora of black women hairstyles that can be used and it is very unfortunate that this hasn't been expanded upon...just my opinion
  • Druid40
    I second this motion.
  • max_only
    Yes please! We also need the return of the bald fade for men. Also I saw a 2h Dragonknight Redguard running at me yesterday and I thought I was going to die, she was really beautiful, she even had tattoos on her dark skin and still looked fierce honey! I wanted to compliment her but eh, you never know the reaction when you say nice things to people using female avatars. Anywho, yes to the suggestion.

      Do you have any knowledge of African cultures? What you're describing are modern hairstyles. ESO isn't set in 1965, 75, 85, 95, or the 2000s. Why would they have them?

      a ponytail is modern? interesting...
    • Minyassa
      I have a strong suspicion that they've probably canned some ethnic hairstyles for fear of starting a big mess about cultural appropriation since their humanoid hairstyles work across the board for any humanoid race. I doubt anyone would really even blink at that, but people who are running entertainment businesses tend to either be completely insensitive or way too sensitive and we know that ZOS has an eye on being socially progressive. So they are probably chickening out for fear of some kind of backlash.

      Because that hairstyle is mostly only ever seen in media promotions, advertising etc.
      You would be hard pressed to find anyone sporting it in normal day to day life...

      The question should be, why is the media obsessed with showing images of black women with afro hairstyles.

      this doesn't make sense to me at all. come to my neighborhood, we can walk a quarter-mile on any sunny day and be "easy pressed" to see these extremely common styles, maybe a dozen times in such a short walk. there are still people who happily prefer to use relaxers, and i'm glad if it makes them feel slick, but i'm also glad so many more people are seeing the beauty of natural hair these days. having to deal with so many more crushes is just my own problem :)

      but yeah i want to vote for more kinked and natural hairstyles in the game too. i've seen some combed-out but close-cut hairstyles on Redguard men NPCs. just working on the visuals of the edges a little bit would open so many more options for ZoS's stylists.
      I agree with this, as well. More hairstyles for PoC couldn't hurt and give everyone more options for unique looks.
    • LadyNalcarya
      Yes, please! Would be nice to have something like this or this.
      Also I would really like to be able to use some of male haircuts on female chars. That Imperial haircut looks very good on Zeira, for example! :)

      Sounds like an awesome idea :)
    • Kalik_Gold
      Love this as I have locs in real life. There are plenty Loc styles for men. There was a braided natural hairstyle for women, but it was crown store only.

      I only saw 1 person using it so far on ps4/na and actually stopped and gave her a compliment. (Hope it was a her, it was a female character)


      Can't believe someone in this thread asked how is a hairstyle "race centric", wow. That's why most of my toons are Redguards... representation.

      I also wouldn't mind this (not sure if released yet)

      Ras Kalik the Vestige, a renown Redguard warrior; He has been blessed to save Tamriel from Molag Bal’s destructive Planemeld while reuniting the Five Companions. His further accomplishments after defeating Molag Bal, has been to stop the destruction of Morrowind, the Clockwork City, return order to the isle of Summerset and create a new king in Wrothgar and a queen in Elsywer. These events have made him a living legend and continue to lead him into new adventures throughout Tamriel, as well as into the hearts of many ladies including the Elf Queen, Aryenn. (not only Sai Sahan has a secret snowflake!) Over many years of adventurous travels, Ras Kalik had become a loner, until he re-visited his homeland of Alik'r.

      Alik'r and it's cities were overrun by the undead Ra-Netu and therefore he made an allegiance with Alik'r's own Ash'abah tribe. These Ash'abah with his help, cleansed the city of Sentinel in Alik'r desert and it's surrounding areas of the undead brought to life by the Withered Hand. After rescuing Sentinel from undead, King Fahara’jad’s personal bodyguard the Goliath of Hammerfell, who was given this name by Imperials in the region; asked to assist the tribe after learning of the defeat of the Withered Hand to the Ash'abah. Kalik promised Goliath he would task him with fighting enemies on the battlefield if he so desired. Goliath being a Yokudan warrior wields a massive sword in respect to the Ansei, Chrysamere, a gift given by the Imperial, Cinan Tharn. Not many soldiers are able to wield double two handed weapons, but Goliath loves to get up and personal in a fight, so he also carries a giant battle-axe.

      Jux Blackheart is a master thief that was frequenting the Sisters of the Sands inn for pilfering during this time. Jux was known to infiltrate any bank vault he came across and even delved into Ayelid ruins without detection. Kalik can vividly recall the night he met the famed thief. Jux found himself rummaging thru a slightly inebriated Kalik’s pocket for too long, on a full-mooned night and because of this and the glimmer of his golden armor in the moonlight and his greed. He lost his left pinky fingertip as a lesson! But in return, he gained a new friend, as it was his first time since a child being caught red-handed...

      Kaotik Von’Daemon an outcast, and a half-caste between a Breton mother and a Redguard father. Kaotik become a pariah due to his conjuration of Daedra pets. He was taught healing magic during his childhood years by his Breton mother. His father due to Redguard customs exiled him from the desert, sending him by wagon caravan to be a soldier in the war in Cyrodiil. He happened to meet Kalik while traveling from Alik'r, during this long caravan ride the caravan he was in was ambushed in Bangkorai by a group of bandits. Kalik by chance was also traveling thru this area on his Auridon Warhorse (which was bestowed to him by his friend, Darien Gautier). During this ambush, Kalik was able to rescue five hostages from the bandits. Kaotik was the first rescued, and Ras Kalik also recruited him to be in the Ash'abah tribe. These core Ash'abah tribesmen may never be seen together in travel as they partake in their own adventures but they always know what each other is doing; as they frequent a hideout in northern Bankorai. Their hideout an old Orc castle ruin, is kept watch by Nuzhimeh and she passes messages written between them, and frequently they also enjoy her company and her bed.

      The other men rescued were a Dunmer banker, an Akaviri monk and two Imperial soldiers. One of the Imperials claimed to be related to Abnur Tharn the Battlemage of the Imperial Elder Council (Ras Kalik's mentor in the Five Companions). Cinan Tharn is really Abnur's drunkard treasure hunting illegitimate son, that was caught smuggling artifacts out of the Ayleid ruins in Cyrodiil and the elder of the two Imperials was Tyrus Septim a retired battle-mage soldier (now mercenary living in Hew's Bane) and guard to the Tharn family. As much as Abnur Tharn hated his half-sister Euraxia, he dislikes his bas†ard son more. Tyrus now a ruffian and privateer had been paid by Abnur Tharn to watch over Cinan as much as possible. Cinan Tharn a drunkard, loves to drink a quarter barrel of Nord mead before he raids various delves and dungeons for relics to sell on the black market. Tharn also plans to one day run an illegal gambling ring... which he thinks will net him more gold for his wares.

      The Dunmer captive shackled to the Imperials looked familiar to Kalik from his time in Morrowind.... and he recognized him as Tythis Andromo a House Telvanni slave-owner and banker from Vvardenfell. During a rough interrogation to Tythis, Ras Kalik learnt why the bandits accosted him. The racist Dunmer was providing slaves as soldiers for the Three Banner War. The bandits were trying to negotiate a lucrative ransom for Andromo and the Imperials.... Kalik did not need any of this gold and he could never set Tythis free as he did with the two Imperial soldiers. His past involvement with slavery and war crimes, made Kalik's blood boil. He chose not to execute Tythis, as he figured the worse punishment for this former rich and opulent slave owner, is to now be an imprisoned servant for Ras Kalik and the tribe.

      Herzog Zwei the Genesis a Breton (Akaviri mother / Breton father) and also a prominent monk from Hakoshae (The Akaviri eventually left their adopted home of Cyrodiil and moved to the Rim territories of Elsweyr, including the city of Rimmen after being made scapegoats for the Potentates. Those who didn't survive the flight from Cyrodiil were buried in the Tomb of the Serpents while many others went and founded the town of Hakoshae). Herzog was seeking to purchase an artifact from Cinan Tharn, before their capture. This artifact being the Ayelid artifact; the sword Sinweaver. After their rescue and the exchange of gold to Cinan for the sword he decided to slip away before Ras Kalik could question who he was, and why the Tsaesci descendant wanted that sword. Herzog was headed to Nagastani — An Ayleid ruin in eastern Cyrodiil. He had read in scrolls that the Sword would give him magical powers to meet his forefathers spirits, if he performed an Ayleid ritual at an old shrine hidden there. Equipped with the artifact sword, he was off to start his own adventure. Ras Kalik did indeed notice the sword however, and instead sent a letter to Jux Blackheart (whom also was interested in Ayleid treasures), to attempt to find Herzog and acquire the sword. (*Azani Blackheart in Elder Scroll's Oblivion is Jux's descendant some 747 years later)

      And so the Redguard, Imperial and Breton men have parted ways for now... While Ras Kalik is off to Elsweyr to encounter the latest threat to Tamriel, with Abnur Tharn and Sai Sahan - - DRAGONS!! Little does Kalik know a few people are awaiting him in Senchal besides Sai. A necromancer survived his attack on the Withered Hand, while in Alik'r. The one known as Auriek Siet'ka is also following him to the land of the Khajiits and Cacique the Sage of Ius a Shaman mystic who has become attuned spiritually with Tu'whacca (a Redguard God) and Ius (the Animal God), after being burned severely by the escaped dragons, is awaiting his arrival also.

      The journey to Senchal will also put him on a path to meet a strange man which was infected with an untreated Peyrite disease and also was the exiled from the Order of the New Moon cult, due to his sickness. He originally joined the cult to worship Laatvulon, the green dragon, mistakenly thinking it was the Daedric prince Peyrite. This confused and suffering cultist is known as Tsar al-Bomba and he is on a path to spread the disease. He was originally infected in Orccrest while recruiting members there. Can Ras Kalik and the shaman Cacique cure this poor soul, only time will tell. Little does Tsar al-Bomba know, the infection is tied to Vampirism, but eventually the desire for blood, will take over his mind.

      Movárth Piquine - a former vampire hunter (now infected) within the Fighter's Guild (and a secretive necromancer) was in Skyrim working with the Morthaal Guard. On a patrol mission he was caught in the Frewien's ice curse outside of Morthaal with the frozen undead. Movárth's vampiric infection kept him from becoming an undead minion to the curse. He was able to use necromantic ice-magic to encase himself safely until he was freed with Freiwen, when the Vestige Ras Kalik broke the curse.

      Bates Vesuius of Dawnstar - grandfather of Silus Vesuius. His love of fire will eventually lead him to become a follower of Mehrunes Dagon (the daedric prince of Destruction). Mehrune Dagon delights in creating chaos, ostensibly for the sake of change, throughout Tamriel through the work of mortal agents he selects. He often destroys these agents once they are no longer useful.... Bates Vesuius will be the first in his family to go down this dark path, but not the last.

      Uri Ice-Heart - twin of Urfon Ice-Heart. Twin sons of Atli and Oljourn Ice-Heart that are originally from Markarth but are now residing on the Jerall Mountain range near Cyrodiil, their younger sister Araki has also relocated but she is in Windhelm currently. The twins joined the Winterborn Reachmen while living in Markarth. Urfon pushed west to Orsinium with the Winterborn Clan, leaving his family behind. Uri stayed behind with his parents and sister to live in the family cabin for safety, to avoid the Vampire plague infiltrating the Reach. After news reaches him and he hears of Urfon's death... Uri leaves and heads home to the Reach and is seeking vengeance. Meanwhile, his sister has moved on to Windhelm to join the Fighter's guild. He will visit his sister, once before going to seek vengeance and she will craft him armor mixed with ice, called Stalhrim armor.

      Anyway, Zos knows but doesn’t know. They gave an A plus effort with this hairstyle and it went... unappreciated to say the least

      I think the problem with this is that big hair styles in the game don't quite look like hair. These look like meshes that sit on top of player's heads and don't feel natural. This one kind of works but still looks slightly off.
    • ghastley
      Longer styles always have the problem of not looking right if they don't move. It's the cape issue again. I'd still like more choices of short styles, especially an "unstyled" loose look. A warrior needs to look they they were just in a fight, not a hairdressing salon.
    • Jaimeh
      I would love to see more natural hairstyles, and more curls in general--there aren't many options currently, but the examples posted above by @TheShadowScout are awesome!
