Special haircuts on Harv's Island
Name in other languages
Harriet is a dog who first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World, working in a store in Nookington's, and again appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, with her own store Shampoodle in the city and Main Street respectively, and in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, where she primarily resides on Harv's Island. Her role is to change the hairstyle of the player depending on their answers to a series of questions. Her name is a pun on the word "hair," and her Japanese name is a pun on "cut," both in reference to her profession.
Harriet is a pink Poodle with pink flicks, a brown nose, a pink tail, a white fade-ins from her hands and feet.
In earlier games, Harriet wears a blue, red, and white striped apron either referencing the French flag or an old fashioned barber pole. In New Horizons, she ditches her apron to wear a pink tie-die long shirt with a brown vest, blue pants, and brown shoes. She also wears yellow-shaded glasses and a headband.
Harriet is cheerful and likes different hairstyles. Whether anyone likes it or not, she still gives people the hairstyles she likes the most.
In Wild World
In Animal Crossing: Wild World, Harriet is the proprietor of Shampoodle, which is located within Nookington's. She will offer the player a haircut for 3,000 Bells, which is styled based on the answers of a series of questions - the answers usually relate to a stereotypical hairstyle by a type of group or genre. The player can only get one haircut per day. Harriet will be at the Roost Café, 11:00 PM – 12:00 AM, Mon - Fri, but the player must have Nookington's in their town first.
After the player has had all the different hairstyles, Harriet will offer them a haircut of the opposite gender.
Attempting to leave the salon after paying, but before receiving a haircut, will prompt a dialogue from Harriet. She will not let the player leave without making use of her services, unlike in Animal Crossing: City Folk.
In City Folk
In Animal Crossing: City Folk, she has her own beauty salon in the city and no longer works in Nookington's. The store remains under the same name of Shampoodle and her character traits are very much unchanged, but she now offers a wider variety of hairstyles. Additionally, Harriet now offers a Mii mask, a mask that is styled on a Mii character created on the Wii. The style costs 3,000 Bells as well (except for the first Mii Mask, which is free), but only one style can be stored. She will only style the player's hair once per day.
In New Leaf
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Harriet runs Shampoodle again, which is situated above the Able Sisters store on Main Street. In order to unlock the salon, the player must spend 10,000 Bells at Able Sisters or Kicks. Ten days must also have passed since Kicks was built. She offers the player the option of changing their eye color with contacts. Her personality and services remain unchanged, except for that new feature.
If the player gets the same color and haircut as what they had previously, Harriet will say, "Since I only did a tiny touch-up, I won't charge you anything."
In New Horizons
Harriet was added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons as part of 2.0 Free Update. Dressed in hippie attire, she will help Harvey spearhead developing a newly accessible area of Harv's Island into an open market. After one shop is opened, she will provide the player an exclusive hairstyle that can subsequently be chosen at a mirror. In order to unlock the rest of the exclusive hairstyles, the player must continue to finish opening up the final shops in the commune. After each shop is opened, Harriet will offer the player a hairstyle. After unlocking all seven hairstyles, her shop closes; from this point onward, she instead wanders around the island alongside Harvey, providing small talk when spoken to.
In Pocket Camp
Harriet appears in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp if the player has purchased the Harriet's Salon Station special furniture and has placed it in their campsite or cabin. The special furniture costs 300 Leaf Tickets and was available from May 16, 2020 to July 15, 2020.
