How To Get Custom Minecraft Heads In 2022

While Minecraft players traditionally have the head that their skin provides, it is also possible to equip custom heads. These custom heads allow players to completely change the appearance of their head.

In Vanilla Minecraft, it is possible to collect mob heads through various means. However, players can also place custom heads in-game as an alternative. Some can be obtained in multiplayer situations through the use of commands, while others can be placed in-game through add-ons and mods. Anyway, this article will provide a quick guide on how to get access to custom heads of different varieties.


Players can acquire custom heads in Minecraft through commands and plugins

When players add custom heads to their inventory in Minecraft, they will want to distinguish which type of head they would like to add. Player heads in multiplayer situations can be added via commands, while more custom variants may require mods or add-ons. Regardless, getting any of these head variations shouldn’t be too difficult, especially for players who are familiar with the nuances of modding and using commands.

Get player heads via commands

  1. Place a command block or open your chat commands.
  2. Enter “/give @p minecraft:player_head{SkullOwner:PlayerNameHere}” before pressing enter or activating the command block. This will provide you with an equippable head that is a copy of a given player’s head as seen in their player skin.

Obtaining custom heads through the custom head site

  1. Head over to Minecraft-Heads.com and select a custom head of your choice. For example, the head of the Creeper Maid.
  2. Open the custom header page and find the necessary code for your version of the game.
  3. Drop a command block into the game, then copy and paste or type the code for the custom head. These headers are connected to Mojang’s header database, so the correct code should be correctly applied within the command block. For the Creeper Maid head, players would enter “/give @p minecraft:player_head{display:{Name:”{\”text\”:\”Creeper Maid\”}”},SkullOwner:{Id:[I;-10997397,-1676981671,-1297833846,1518878174],properties:{textures:[{Value:”eyJ0ZXh0dXJlcyI6eyJTS0lOIjp7InVybCI6Imh0dHA6Ly90ZXh0dXJlcy5taW5lY3JhZnQubmV0L3RleHR1cmUvNjQ5NThkNjM0MDY2NTc4Mjk0YmYwMThkNjM3YTViYzllNDZlYTkyODM3ZTdjZjJjNTlkNjcxZWNkNTUyZTBjNSJ9fX0=”}]}}} 1” in your command block.
  4. Activate the command block once the command has been inserted correctly and you can enjoy your new custom head.

Players using plugins can also access custom heads through other methods. For example, SpigotMC users can use the custom heads plugin, which adds over 600 custom heads to the game. Like the methods listed above, these custom heads can be accessed by players through the use of commands or command blocks. However, it is important that players use the proper plugin that matches their version of the game; otherwise the plugin may not work as expected or may cause errors.

If a player opts for mods or addons, they will also need to keep the mod/addon of their choice up to date after major game updates. Smaller updates (like 1.19.2 instead of 1.19.0) typically don’t cause game-breaking issues, but more substantial gameplay and content updates are a different story. After a larger content update, it is common practice for players to update their mods and addons if possible.

Custom heads are a great way to add variety to the Minecraft experience, providing even more customization that players wouldn’t be able to access otherwise. Also, it can be fun to take on the appearance of another character or player for a while, even if you don’t necessarily look similar. There are a lot of fun head/skin customizations to enjoy, and players should definitely try out some custom heads.
