I read through the list of player proposed changes/tweaks/additions and what SE planned for each and from what I've gathered there will be no new body/face/skin colors/anything fleshy in the character creator. They mentioned that it had something to do with the game engine and stability/streamlining. There will however be new hairstyles, and face paints at/after launch. They are going to add a "barber" in game so players will be able to change their hair/face paint/possibly a couple other small effects whenever they want. So don't be too worried that they are going to come out with a better hairstyle for your character at launch even though you've been playing it through open beta/early relase.
