  • "'Short back and sides' is it?"
  • "Those highlights really bring out your eyes!"
  • "My hands are sticky from all that...wax."
  • "Tea? Coffee? Or is it just orange juice again?"
  • "Sit down for a second and I'll have you steppin' razor."
  • "Either you have style, or you get styled."
  • "For you I think we'll do something... low maintenance."
  • "I tried using one of the Dye Master's products once. Ends fried. Disaster."
  • "Oh you poor, poor thing. Just... just sit down here. It'll be okay. Shhhh."

If Male

If Female

  • "Doll, we seriously need to fix those split ends."
  • "Gurrllll! You are my favorite gossip ever."
  • "So a pixie cut, would you like to keep some lady burns?"

During a Blood Moon

  • "Tipping IS optional, but remember I have access to scissors and your head."
  • "This is a cut-throat razor by the way."
  • "You better stay outta my hair tonight, hun. I just sharpened my scissors, and I'm looking for an excuse to use them!"

During the morning

  • "Did you even try to brush your hair today?"

Only when another NPC exists

  • "I hope you like what I did to (Name of Party Girl)'s hair!"
  • "There is nothing I can do for (Name of Demolitionist)'s singed head. He's a lost cause."
  • "Mhmm, I heard from (Name of Party Girl) that (Name of Mechanic)'s friend (Name Of Nurse) spent her boyfriend's last paycheck on shoes."
  • "One time I put a wig on (Name of Cyborg) just so I could cut his hair. I think he kinda liked it!"

After being freed from a Spider Nest

  • "Thanks, hun. Now I can do my hair."
  • "I would have given you a free cut if you'd come earlier."
  • "Don't go exploring with scissors, they said. You won't get trapped in a spiders web, they said!"
  • "Ew, my hair, there's spider web all over it!"

Stylist's Names
Note: Upon adding a new name, make sure you add it in alphabetical (ABC) order.
  • Annabel
  • Biah
  • Bri
  • Brianne
  • Esmeralda
  • Flora
  • Iris
  • Kati
  • Kylie
  • Lola
  • Meliyah
  • Pearl
  • Petra
  • Rox
  • Roxanne
  • Ruby
  • Scarlett
  • Stella


  • Once rescued, she will stay in the vicinity until a suitable Home is built for her.
  • Since Spider Nests were added in the 1.2 update, the Stylist cannot be found in worlds generated before 1.2.
  • An easy way to find the Stylist is to search through the Underground Snow Biome and keep and eye out for a Spider Nest.
  • Running in and out of a Spider Nest until she spawns is a much easier way to spawn her than searching in multiple nests.


  • She has the highest quote count of any NPC.
  • Until 1.2.4, she did not receive a randomly generated name.
  • She seems to be very violent during Blood Moons, threatening to cut the player's head.
  • Her quote "Don't go exploring with scissors, they said. You won't get trapped in spider web, they said!" seems to be a reference to the "[X], they said. It will be fun, they said!" meme.
  • The name Meliyah may be a reference to the game Xenoblade Chronicles, where one of the party members you get is named Melia.


  • Sometimes, the Stylist might not respawn and the player will have to look for her again (fixed in 1.2.4).
  • The Stylist may be named Elliot.
  • The Stylist may change names when you exit and come back to that world. (possibly mobile only)
