This is my tutorial on how to get custom skin heads in-game in Minecraft 1.8. Hope it helps you!

First off, you will need to get a command block, with /give [username here] command_block or just simply type in the / hey. Then, you will type in the following code. but with one note: replace [username] with the username of the player in which you want to get thier head. BTW this works for any version from 1.8 - current
Code
/give @p minecraft:skull 1 3 {SkullOwner:"[username]"}

Will this work for the Nintendo Switch or is there a different command?
Won't work. :c I have v1.13. Is that why it won't work? And if it is, then please tell me how to get a custom head for v1.13. I would really appreciate it. c:

In 1.13.1, this is what worked for me:

/give @p minecraft:player_head{SkullOwner:"[username]"} 1

Just like above, replace [username] with your desired player username.
Hope this helps!

Get rid of the []s at the side. It should look like this (for my head anyway): /give @p minecraft:skull 1 3 {SkullOwner:"The_Finest_Swine"} Get the idea?

I tried to get UnspeakableGaming's head in 1.12 and it crashed for some reason. XI
Im late, I know, butt the command was slightly changed. They removed the [] in the command. UnspeakableGaming's in game name is also Unspeakable, not UnspeakableGaming. Hope I helped.
Hi 420WhachuSmokin, UnspeakableGaming's game name is UnspeakableGame (Watch his latest videos) and when I try UnspeakableGaming, UnspeakableGame or Unspeakable it won't give me Unspeakable's head, all it gives me is Steve's head
Thanks!! This helped so much :DD

Actually, capital letters don't matter. For example, MHF_Enderman, you could write mhf_enderman and it would still give you the head with it automatically capitalized.
Hope this helped! :wink:
Take away square brackets around username
Yeah its actally this command and yes you don't need a command block its /give @p minecraft:skull 1 3 {SkullOwner:"[username]"}[img=Reply]http://www.planetminecraft.com/images/icons/reply.png[/img]

It used to work, now it doesn't, so weird :(

  • January 1, 2016, 7:52 pm
What is the username of the player who's head you are trying to get? Odds are they don't have a skin, or you need to update your game.

love if it still worked. Now you have to use a cruddy website to get it and that website crashed my game!
:( :(
try using /give @p skull 1 3 {SkullOwner:username} that always works for me, by the way don't mess up on the 1 3 cause it will glitch out and give you a nontextured head
