We Might Be Able To Give Emojis a Makeover, Soon!

We’ll might be able to customize emojis even more than we already can. The unicode consortium, that governs emojis, is proposing to add the options to let users alter the hair colour and gender of the emoji. In our gender-fluid world, this sounds like a progress.

Two key changes deal with the gender and hair color of the emojis. Acceptance of the proposal would allow users to choose the color of the emoji’s hair, including ginger, brunette, dark brown, sandy, silver, and bald. Emojipedia took a guess at what the “new looks” could entail:
