Minecraft is a leader when it comes to customization. Across all versions, you have the freedom to upload virtually any skin you want and transform your character into anyone you can imagine – be it Markiplier or a wizard version of Steve.
If these customization features aren’t enough to satisfy players’ needs, there are also heads worth considering. With a quick command, you can upgrade your character’s head into something new. For those with original Minecraft characters, this can be useful for quickly switching from one character form to another and not having to swap out entire skins to swap characters. This quick guide explains how to get custom player heads in Minecraft.

How to get custom heads in Minecraft
Getting custom heads in Minecraft is relatively easy and only requires a website and the base game is functioning properly. A quick visit to Minecraft Heads will present you with all the custom heads you could ever want, with characters from Freddy Fazbear to Iron Man available for your quick use.
Once you’ve loaded the website and know which heads you want in the game, open Minecraft and follow the instructions below:
- Go to Minecraft Heads website and click once on the desired head.
- When you click on it, the website will automatically copy the text required for the head to your clipboard. If not, click on the head again and Minecraft Heads will display the specified codes for the custom head. Select the give code and copy all of the text for it to your clipboard.
- Open Minecraft and create a command block with the following command: /give @p Minecraft:command_block 1
- Once you have created your command block, use the command block by right-clicking on it and pasting your copied code from Minecraft Heads.
- After entering the code, the heads will be available in your inventory to use as you wish.

You can get other codes from Minecraft Heads, including armor sets that align the head or the ability to place blocks in a specific area. Remember that the code area for different heads has two sections: one with codes that work for Minecraft 1.13 and above and encodes it only work for Minecraft 1.8-1.12. Keep your version in mind when copying these codes from one location to another.
