Skyrim: Best Male Body, Face, & Hair Mods


Vanilla Skyrim females are typically OK looking, but the vanilla males are HIDEOUS which is why I’m so thankful to all the modders out there who make male-specific mods.  Here is a rundown on my favorite male mods:

Male Body Types

There is really only one male body mod that you need to know – Better Males – Beautiful Nudes & Faces!  You can choose from two different body meshes in flaccid nude, erect nude, and underwear (if you’re scared of the peen :P).

Sundracon Meshes – My favorite male mesh is Sundracon’s nude flaccid version.  I don’t need my male characters running around with raging boners all the time ;)  Hehehehe.   Sundracon’s mesh has more realistic proportions than FavoredSouls IMO.  Also, most of the “revealing” armor mods for males out there are meant for Sundracon meshes!


FavoredSoul Meshes – FavoredSoul meshes have very few compatible armor mods so I don’t recommend this as much.  However, if you’re into the body-builder diesel body type, this may be your cup of tea!

Male Face Textures

UPDATED JULY 21, 2015: Check out my new male face texture comparisons here!

My biggest complaint about vanilla Skyrim males is how old and beat-down all the male characters looks – even the ones who are supposed to be in the prime of their youth.  Better Males fixes all that with these mods:


  • Geonox Faces
  • Geonox Faces without Beard
  • No More Blocky Faces
  • Younger Faces
  • Younger Faces Merged with Men by Geonox
  • Younger Faces Merged with Men by Geonox without Beard

The Geonox and Younger Faces textures improve the skin complexion for all males while the No More Blocky Faces mod improves the norm maps for all males.  My personal preference is for Younger Faces Merged with Men by Geonox, as it delivers the freshest looking face!

Male Hairstyles

KS Hairdos Renewal – The latest and greatest hair mod adds a ton of new hairstyles for men that look super smooth. My favorite mod by far!

Apachii Sky Hair is the old standard for Skyrim male hair modding.  Make sure you download both the Full version (v 1.5) as well as the standalone male version (v 1.2) which adds 55 standalone hairs for males!  My personal favorite hairstyle is the pompadour – so damn dapper :)

  1. Hey, for my new mod out, I could as much girl advice for which guys should look hot and what type of look. If you got some time, shoot me an e-mail with what you’d like to see on npc men of skyrim. Thanks :)

    • OMG This is such a great idea! I just like variety, so I’m sure anything you come up with will be a huge improvement on the hideous vanilla males in Skyrim. Sundracon body mesh, please!! :)

      • oh my goodness I would adore some new NPCs because good god Skyrim men are ALL THE SAME with slightly different hair and beards. there’s like one redgaurd and some elves. Argonians are pretty neat too but there’s only two you get to properly interact with.

      • I need all of these but more importantly, that first armor! I wants it! (also pretty armor mods in genereal, skyrim armors is pretty neat but IM bored

  2. I don’t know if this blog reply back or not, but this is my first time visit this blog!, also i need some good male skin , well.. if you can help me though! :)

  3. Yes please. I’d love that. I have the mods Can you send them to me >< Thank you so much. Can I have the NPC file too. It would be awesome

  4. Could you do a guide on how to make your character look like that? Or put up the data? Because I’ve been trying for ages to make him look like that but haven’t been able to.

  5. I’d recommend Schlongs of Skyrim for a body type replacer now too. While it’s mostly a mod for adding penises that realistically get hard and soft in the game (you can control them with the page up and page down button! So cool!) and has juggle physics for them, it comes with a great looking body type too. And if you download Pumping Iron to go with it you can gain muscle mass as you get more powerful like in Fable 1. Pretty incredible. Doesn’t change the face unfortunately.

  6. Why are there no hair mods for males that actually make your character look masculine instead of looking like someone who is either massively feminine or looks like they belong in an anime?

  7. Psh, if guys get to go on and on about their favorite ‘slooty’ armors and ‘waifus’, at least let us have a little eye candy too without snarky comments :p

    But I do have to second the comment by Dustin. There aren’t many male hair mods that actually look like something a guy that -doesn’t- live in a frat house, or come from a JRPG would have <.< Would it kill someone to make a hair mod pack that makes my beefcake have hair to match those rippling abs? If I wanted flowing locks and pixie cuts, I'd just load up my Les Yay mod organizer profile <.<

    • I really need to update this blog post … KS Hairdos renewal has a bunch of new male hairs that are awesome – you should check it out!

  8. I use the sundracon version, and is my favourite because is close to the vanilla version. The only problem is that butt is too square whenplayer characters assume a crouched pose.

  9. Hi,I’m new to this and I was wondering what’s your opinion with SOS (Scholongs of Skyrim)?I mean, you can control the penis(LOL),size in the mcm menu,type of bodies(only 2 type) and the type of penis(LOLOLOL).I’m just wondering if you were rating it,how good is it as a male body mod?

    • Haha, honestly I haven’t used it cuz my characters aren’t usually naked so I never bothered. I hear it can be quite hilarious when used in conjunction with HDT physics mod – bouncing peens everywhere :D I know their body type is based on Favored Soul’s mesh, which I like less than the one I use (Sundracon) … and just looking at caps, I’m not a huge fan of the textures, but I think there are texture replacers for SOS. You should definitely try it and let me know how it goes! :D

      • After using SOS,I can say there is actually not alot of different from a normal vanilla male body but it has some higher definition than the vanilla body and the hairy look really looks hot and penis is realistic since not all penises looks the same (xD). In my opinion,it can be like a 1st runner up to sundracons body meshes.Sorry for being too judgemental though LOL

      • Haha you’re talking to the girl who replaced the Talos statue with one with a penis, no judgement here!!! :D
