Why ANet? [Hairstyle]

This hairstyle along with many other unreleased hairstyles, (I've only found these hairstyles for female human and norns) has been spotted many times on the Gemstore along with some unique NPCs, such as White Mantle Cleric, Lake Doric villager, Mistwalker Ilia and many others.

Why wont you, ANet, release these hairstyles to us players? They have been datamined for a long time now and for a time they were bugged in the hairstyle kit where you were able to use these unreleased hairstyles, including a normal simple ponytail, wedding hairstyles, flower in hair-styles and others.
They've been in the game for a long time now, ever since HoT launch I believe as some NPCs started to use these kind of hairstyles.

Anneeeeeet pleaseee, release these too! I mean, they're ready to go and they look so pretty! :love:

I would appreciate if an ANet employee answer to this
PS; while you are at it, release the dress on the 1st picture too!

    That's the one that interests me. Not sure what I think of the others- maybe seeing them on a better model...

    I can think of one reason why you won't see them released to the playing population...the NPC's need their own unique hairstyles that players don't/can't use.

    Yes...no...maybe...what do you want, can't you see I'm busy saving the world...AGAIN!

  • I like the blunt bangs. The dress in the icon could be nice if it isn't an outfit.

    I don't want to sound rude but I honestly don't care about human hairstyles, they got many at PoF release. Gimme new Sylvari and Asura hairstyles already!!!

    Poor Asura are so lacking in hairstyles :(

  • I really don't understand why the Humans, Norn, and Asura don't share hairstyles.

  • I just want some long braids and ponytails like norns have for human

    Check the shape of the human head and that of an Asura and you will know why.

    Excelsior.

    Zedexx, Asura Deadeye and assassin.
    The Hunter / 2x Darksteel Pistols / 2x Whisper's Secret Daggers and my Springer. That's all I need and trust.

    Their heads aren't so different that they couldn't style hair in the same ways.

    You humans got enough of them with expansion... it's time to show some love for other 4 races who haven't got anything for like 2 years.

    Norns need more beards and Charr need more horns!

    Please Anet give us a hide Chest Armour-option. Tattoo-clad Norns everywhere beg of you.

    Funny thing is that the two of the Canthan (Asian)-looking hairstyles in my post is already in GW2 China version, but not ours lol. :tongue:

  • Is that long ponytail (bottom left) in the game somewhere, where I can go to see the whole thing?

    It is....if you're playing the Chinese client.

    Why'd you have to hurt me?

    I want a hairstyle similar to this, but it also needs to be animated.

    Actually, I wouldn't mind a lot of the hair and armor from Vindictus. It has a nice mixture of styles and tastes.

    Sorry but that doesn't make sense. Unless it is sarcasm?

    A little bit of both...half sarcasm and half honest opinion, whether it makes sense or not is a different matter.

  • as mentioned by others, it likely has to do with racial equality. The living world s3, PoF and so far s4 has been pretty human centric. So there is a a significant inbalance in hairstyles cause of that allready.
    On a side note. I kinda dislike the overkill in human centric stories. What is actually the motivation for a charr commander or norn commander to go to istan to help some sunspears? I am hopefull thought that with Logan back in action we also see the pact marching in with all races envolved in the movement of things.
