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.

Desktop VersionConsole Version When confronted by enemies, the Stylist will use Stylish Scissors to defend herself. She may also drop them upon death.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Webbed Stylist is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.
  • 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.
  • A Webbed Stylist can be damaged and killed by spiders (Wall Creeper in Pre-Hardmode and Black Recluse in Hardmode). Finding her is therefore made simpler by looking for orange damage numbers.
  • On the Mobile version Mobile version, if the player taps on the Stylist, taps the three lines to go into the inventory, then presses the X on the shop screen, dyes can be bought and placed into 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 one of her quotes, she refers to the Dye Trader as the "Dye Master."
  • 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.
  • On the Mobile version Mobile version, if a player taps on the Stylist while in Werewolf form from the Moon Charm or its upgrades, the head and current hairstyle of the player will be displayed above the werewolf image.
