Upon entering a salon and speaking to the receptionist, the player may change their hair color by selecting the "Color" option, or change their haircut by selecting the "Styling" X Y / "Cut" S M option. The player may also change the color and cut simultaneously. For female players, front styling/bangs may be customized independently of the rest of player’s haircut.

Players may browse through the boutique’s selection before entering a fitting room and activating the Trainer customization screen. Alternatively, the player can purchase an item or accessory immediately by walking up to the displayed items (if there are any) in the shop and pressing "A". The item and accessory price will pop up, along with a close-up of the merchandise, and the player can select to purchase it without trying it on. The Trainer customization screen has separate menus for hats, tops, bottoms, dresses, socks, shoes, bags, and hat accessories.

In Sun and Moon, each apparel shop in Alola has a unique selection of fashion items. Players can browse the shop’s selection by talking to the attendant.
