Breakfast Topic: Are you getting a haircut?

So like I was saying the other day, one of the things I'm looking forward to the most out of WotLK is the character customization options, such as the dance studio and the barber shop. I've already got a few ideas in my head for how I'm going to change my characters.

For my Night Elf druid, I've been tired of his green hair for a while now. It's not bad, and it blends in well with most Druid tier armor, but I feel like I want to stand out, so I'm figuring royal purple, one of my favorite colors, should look awesome. I'm also figuring I'll give him the short beard (he's clean-shaven), and maybe restyle his hair to be the long topknot style, if only because the Samurai look would be pretty sweet. As far as dances, I'll have to see how the system works, like if it lets you pick any dance currently in game or just gives you access to a couple extra dances for each race, but If it's an option, I am totally switching him over to the Tunak Tun dance, if only because I absolutely love that dance.

I'm pretty happy with my other two characters, but I'm sort of thinking that I should have my Dwarf hunter bring her hair down, if only so I can get that awesome twirling braid look whenever use my Hearthstone or cast Eyes of the Beast. If the rumors about tattoos pan out, I'd also love to get her some tribal Wildhammer style tatooing going on. For my Human warlock, I roleplay him as a nobleman, so I'd love to switch his dance to something more elegant than Saturday Night Fever. Maybe that dance that Moroes' party guests do in the Karazhan Ballroom?

I know we don't know a whole lot about exactly how the barber shop and dance studio will work yet, but it's always fun to do a little bit of speculation. How do you plan to change your character's hair and dance moves? If you're thinking of a dance or hairstyle that isn't in game yet, what are you hoping to see?
