"Vanity" redirects here. For a guide on how to utilize vanity and customize the character's appearance, see Guide:Vanity.

Vanity items are wearable items that can be equipped in social slots next to the armor and accessories slots in a character's inventory. Wearing them will change a character's appearance, but will not provide any functionality. Vanity items placed in the armor slots will also cover all armor appearances. Many of these vanity items are references to popular culture and other video games.

Interactions with Hair[]

HairAlt Difference

The same hairstyle on a character shown in its flat version (left) and its original version (right).

Some head pieces in Terraria show the player's original hair under them, while others hide hair completely, even if that item does not cover the entirety of the player's head. When an item shows player hair, the game will either display the full hairstyle, or a variant of it that flattens the hair so it fits under headgear. This allows items such as the Wizard's Hat to also display the beard of a player. With the exception of the Wizard Hat, armor items generally do not show player hair. Note that, by default, the game hides player hair, so items not listed below hide player hair entirely.
