Not sure if you meant the AC Scratch Ticket Lottery, or not... o.O
When you go into the AC Scratch Tickets option through the Main Menu, you should see a variety of different tickets available for either 200 or 500 Arks Cash. There are also tickets you can purchase with 100 FUN (though the prizes usually aren't worth it---it's better to spend your FUN Points at the FUN Shop unless you are swimming in unspent points).
It is a VERY rare chance occurrence, but you CAN get hairstyles from the FUN Shop. Here is the Cirnopedia link for more info on how to obtain hairstyles, but please note that several of these hairstyles may be unavailable because they were for events held in the past: http://cirnopedia.frostsabre.com/tickets_5.php#nav
By the way, Cirnopedia is probably your best resource site for technical info and databases all about Phantasy Star Online 2.
After selecting one of the tickets, a prompt will come up with three different options. The only ones you need to know for now are the first and last options. The first option is there to purchase a ticket while the last one allows you to preview what you may get from the lottery.
So far, there are two main AC Scratch Ticket choices, both of which have two options in value (200 or 500 Arks Cash---which translates to about 3-4 and 6-8 USD each, respectively). The dates displayed next to their name signal when that particular lottery with those items ends, but there's always a chance said items will be available again sometime in the future if you don't get a chance to get what you wanted.
