After Harriet has changed your hairstyle fifteen times, Harriet might offer to give you an opposite gender hairstyle.
If you don't play your game for fifteen days, your character will automatically have a "messy" hairstyle. You can fix it by going back to Shampoodle and getting a new hairstyle. You won't get the messy hairstyle if the Beautiful Town ordinance is in effect.
Harriet can also give you makeup to look like any Mii that you have saved in Mii Maker. Just ask for the Makeup option. The cost is 3000 bells. Harriet will create a mask that looks just like the Mii. You can put the mask on or take it off at any time.
Your Mii Masks will be below your custom designs, which you can access by tapping the pencil tab on the touch screen. Tap a Mii Mask to put it on. Tap "Mii" to take it off. You can also take your Mii Mask off by opening your inventory, tapping your person, and selecting "remove hat". The Mii Mask will also automatically be removed if you put on an accessory or other hat.
