Bound Stylist.png
Internal NPC ID: 353-354
This is a Town NPC. A House may be required in order for it to appear.

The Stylist is an NPC that can change your hair style and color. She also sells a variety of Hair Dyes, which apply dynamic effects to the player's hair.

Switching to another normal hairstyle costs 1 Gold Coin, while Stylist-exclusive hairstyles cost 5 Gold Coin; changing hair color costs 1 Gold Coin. Hair Dyes range in price from 5 Gold Coin to 30 Gold Coin.

You can find the Stylist in Spider Nests, entangled in cobweb. Talking to her will free her, after which she will move into a vacant House if one is available. As with all similar NPCs, she spawns the same as enemies - positioning yourself with a Spider Nest just off screen and then checking it once in a while for the spawn is an easy way to find her. Using a Battle Potion and running in and out of the nest will give her a better chance of spawning. A Lifeform Analyzer can detect her, showing "Webbed Stylist" when she is nearby.

She uses Stylish Scissors to attack nearby enemies. They will be dropped (sometimes) if she dies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Since Spider Nests were added in the 1.2 patch, the Stylist is impossible to obtain in worlds created before 1.2 without the use of third-party software.
  • Due to hardware limitations, the Stylist does not sell dyes on the 3DS version.
  • A Bound Stylist can be damaged and killed by spiders, if one of them hits her that is enough to kill her. Therefore it may be a good idea to look for orange numbers when looking for her.
  • On the mobile version there is a glitch where you tap on the Stylist, press Shop, tap the three lines to go into your inventory, then press the X on the shop screen. Then you can buy her dyes and have them in your inventory.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Stylist was created as a result of an official NPC design contest, being a heavily modified version of the Salonist. The original poster, TerrariaOnline poster avarisc (aka Ripsand), is credited and thanked in the 1.2.3 changelog, as well as poster Omnir for contributing several of the hairstyles.
  • Her line, "Don't go exploring with scissors, they said. You won't get trapped in a spiders web, they said!" is a case of the Laundry Room Viking meme.
    • The phrase “X they said, it would be Y they said” derives from the Franco-Belgian comic series Asterix (circa 1963). One of the catch phrases translated into English as "Join up, they said! It's a man's life, they said!".
  • Despite her quote of "Don't go exploring with scissors, they said. You won't get trapped in a spiders web, they said!", the Stylist can still attack enemies with her Stylish Scissors.
  • In the game files, Stylist has separate "gore" images for her head and Hair. This could suggest that the stylist is actually wearing a wig.
