You could have a look at this article. Customizing SharePoint 2010 global navigation with Css and jQuery or this one Customizing the SharePoint 2010 Menu with CSS and jQuery
Also, if you google jquery menu you will find lots of free nice looking menus you can customize.

Add the code to your masterpage and you should be good.

Actually i was not talking about UI or styling. I am wondering if it is possible to show site hierarchy on the menu. – ozdogan Oct 3 '12 at 19:20
Did you try the Global Navigation -> show subsites ? – Oddmar Dam Oct 3 '12 at 19:34

I believe this article could help.

Modify your masterpage, find the SharePoint:AspMenu tag and set the MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="1" to something larger then 1

Also set the Global Navigation to show sub sites

Hello thanks for the answer i got progress with using MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels=X but the thing is, i dont want searh sites or other built-in sites showing up in the menu, i only want the hieararchy of the sites i created. can i have something like a filter, for which sites to be displayed? – ozdogan Oct 4 '12 at 6:23
Sounds like you need to write your own Custom Navigation Provider – Oddmar Dam Oct 4 '12 at 6:59
