I bought Terraria a few days ago and I saw people with mohawks and an afro. Now I was wondering how I could get the same?

  • Link? I don't think it's possible without editing the sprite itself somewhere. – The Communist Duck May 20 '11 at 9:41
  • on totalhalibut youtube's channel he said he used slime gells. I've tried this, but nothing happened – Sir Ksilem May 20 '11 at 9:49
  • @Wrigglenite It's nice of you to do this, but note that even with a higher vote count the accepted answer will still be on top – Private Pansy Sep 15 '18 at 13:48
  • @PrivatePansy Yes, that's unfortunate, but I can't do anything about that. At least more votes and a bounty should show that something is not right with the accepted answer. – Wrigglenite Sep 15 '18 at 14:00

As of the latest version of Terraria on the PC, it is now possible to change your hairstyle in-game through the Stylist NPC who was introduced in 1.2.3.

The Stylist, like the Goblin Tinkerer and the Angler, must be found and freed before she can provide her service. She can be found in the Spider Nest mini biome, found in worlds generated in version 1.2 and above.

For the cost of 1 gold coin she will give you a hairstyle that could have been chosen at character creation, and for 5 gold coins she will give you a hairstyle that is exclusive to her. In addition, she can change your hair color for 1 gold coin and sells special hair dyes that have a wide variety of interesting effects for 5 - 15 gold coins.


On the character creation menu, click 'Hair'. Above the Hair Colour sliders is 'Hair 1'. Clicking that iterates through a number (15 or so) of different hair styles.

  • dang, so i need to create another character? – Sir Ksilem May 20 '11 at 11:17

    Afraid so, as far as I can see. You may be able to edit your file somehow. – The Communist Duck May 20 '11 at 11:23

    use Terraria InvEdit, and no, you aren’t a cheater if you don’t actally use it to cheat. Tools are tools. If somebody uses a hammer, he’s no murderer, just because there were murders executed with hammers. – flying sheep Jun 12 '11 at 18:03

    19 new hairstyles were added in the Terraria 1.0.6 update, so now there are 36 different hairstyles to choose from. You can now clycle through the hairstyles backwards by right-clicking on the hair selection screen when creating a new character. – bcpettifer Aug 10 '11 at 20:23

You can buy a wig from the Clothier. After defeating skeletor the clothier (old man) should be selling you suit and wig. http://terraria.wikia.com/wiki/Clothier
