Will There Be A Beauty Salon (Shampoodle's)?

Nintendo Direct - Move Shops
In previous games in the series, you could edit your player's hairstyle, hair color, and eye color in Shampoodle's, a beauty salon managed by Harriet the Poodle.

From there, you could also wear your Mii's head as makeup.

It could be possible that it is included in the list of facilities that you can build on the island. This will be updated if new information is released.

I love that I can change my hairstyle etc., because I want it to look like every time.

Can't seem to choose the best hair for me. The game needs more options for customization which wouldn't be far off if they would put DLC.
