How to add Santa Hat Memoji in iMessage on iPhone and iPad

As we edge closer to Christmas, why not let the holiday spirit spill over into your digital space? I’d recommend freshening up your iPhone chats and swapping out your regular stickers and GIFs with more festive ones. And don’t forget Memojis! Instead of relying on common Animojis (the 3D emojis that move with your face) or your current Memoji (your own customized 3D avatar), why not add a Santa Hat to your Memoji in iMessage?

Sounds cool, right? Here’s everything you need to know to create the perfect Christmas Memoji on iPhone and iPad!

How to add Santa Hat to your existing Memoji on iPhone

  1. Launch the Messages app → Open any iMessage conversation.
  2. Tap the More (+) button on the lower left.
  3. Access the Memoji app.
    If you can’t find it, tap More.

    Open Messages app, Tap Plus icon and select Memoji
  4. If you have several Memojis, swipe sideways to select the Memoji you want to add a Santa Hat to.
    • If you don’t have one, tap Continue to create a Memoji. Then follow the steps below.
  5. Once you’ve chosen which Memoji to edit, tap the More (…) icon and select Edit.
    • If you don’t want to alter your Memoji and just want a Santa Hat version of that Memoji, tap Duplicate to save a copy of it.

      Choose Memoji and Tap more, then tap edit
  6. On the upper tab, swipe to the right and select Headwear.
  7. On the Main color selection, choose Red. You can also move the slider to achieve your ideal shade, from a deeper velvet red to a more vibrant one.
  8. Select the Santa Hat headwear at the bottom of the selection.
  9. Change the Second and Third colors to white.
  10. Tap Done.
