How to shave in Red Dead Redemption 2

Over the course of Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re going to get into your fair share of fights in the shoes of Arthur Morgan. Our leading character can begin to look a bit rough at certain points during the game, especially if you let his beard grow out.

  1. Shaving in Red Dead Redemption 2 is simple. Firstly, you need to head back to your main base camp, which can change depending on what section of the main story of the game you happen to be in at the time.
  2. Next, you need to head to Arthur Morgan’s tent within the camp. This is marked by the symbol depicted just below on the mini map. Once there, wander around the outside of your tent, and you’ll eventually be given the option to shave at a mirror by holding down the Y/Triangle button.

Can you customize facial hair in Red Dead Redemption 2?

In this shaving mode, you can opt to select either the chops, beard, or moustache area of Arthur Morgan’s face. You can customize all three areas of facial hair however much you wish, meaning you can basically play around with Arthur’s facial hair however much you please.

Can you let Arthur's beard grow in Red Dead Redemption 2?

This is an option to do so, if you want. Ultimately, you don't ever have to trim Arthur's beard if you don't want to.

You'll notice pretty early on that Arthur Morgan will begin to look rather rough in his appearance, especially in the facial hair department. But it's up to you if you want to trim this bear. It will only grow up to a certain point, though, indicated when trimming Arthur's beard.


We might now be all done with this particular Red Dead Redemption 2 guide, but there’s plenty of additional guides to Rockstar’s game for you to look at.
