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 :)
