FFXIV: How To Get Styled For Hire? [Location And Unlock Guide]

In our Styled for Higher FFXIV guide, we will go over the best ways to unlock Style for Hire - one of the most exotic looks in the game.

Styled for hire can only be earned by playing the PVP modes in the game. However, it’s not as difficult or restrictive as in most PVP-based modes and games. In this part, we will go over how to unlock The Wolves’ Den so you can start working towards the prize.

After you defeat the Lord of Inferno, you will be allowed to join a Grand Company as part of the main story. This will give you three options to choose from: The Twin Adder (Gridania), The Maelstrom (Limsa Lominsa), and The Immortal Flames (Ul’dah).

Keep in mind that any choice you make here will not affect how the story plays out and is solely for the narrative purpose. Certain rewards for each group are different, but you can switch back and forth as you like, although there is a time restriction post-transfer.

After joining a Grand Company and being formally inducted into its ranks, you will be able to access the quest “A Pup No Longer”. Based on your choice, the quest will be available at one of the following locations.

  • New Gridania (9.8, 11.2)
  • Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (2.9, 12.6)
  • Ul’dah – Steps of Nald (8.5, 9.1)
Key Takeaways
  • The hairstyle Styled For Hire can be exchanged from The Wolves Den in Limsa Lominsa.
  • After completing the quest A Pup No Longer you can unlock the PVP mode called THE Feast, which is one way to earn Wolf Marks.
  • Wolf Marks can be exchanged for various rewards, including hairstyles, at the vendor located at Wolves’ Den Pier.
  • The Styled for Hire hairstyle costs around 18,000 Wolf Marks, and the best way to farm Wolf Marks is to queue for Frontline during the daily reset time (3:00 PM Server Time).
  • The Aesthetician, Jandelaine, can be unlocked by completing the level 15 scenario quest Call of the Sea, which allows you to change hairstyles, among other character features.
  • Any modern Aesthetician copies used will add new hairstyles under the tab by the same name upon summoning Jandelaine.

Feasting On The Frontline

After completing “A Pup No Longer,” you’ll unlock The Feast, a PVP mode with casual and ranked matches featuring two teams of four players. Winners earn PVP experience, Wolf Marks, and Allagan Tomestones of Poetics. Wolf Marks can be exchanged for special armor, weapons, minions, mounts, hairstyles, and more.

You’ll also find another quest in the same locations. Completing “Like Civilized Men and Women” unlocks Frontline, a 24 to 72-player battle royale-style mode, different from The Feast.

Keep in mind that with Endwalker being released and patch 6.1 on the way, Square Enix is introducing a PVP overhaul. This can mean many things but we’ll dive into it near the end of the guide.

Heart Of PVP – The Wolves’ Den

In the hub of PVP activities, The Wolves’ Den, you can engage in 1v1 duels, practice PVP rotations at striking dummies, exchange Wolf Marks and other PVP currencies for rewards, and participate in competitive duties.

Completing duties like Frontline or The Feast earns you Wolf Marks, with the amount varying based on your performance. You receive these marks after each match. To purchase Styled for Hire, which costs 18,000 Wolf Marks, you’ll need to farm these duties.

You can find the vendor selling various prizes at Wolves’ Den Pier (coordinates 4.5, 6.0). Speak with the vendor to exchange your marks for items like hairstyles, emotes, minions, and more.

The Aesthetician – Hired For Style

We will now outline the process of unlocking the services of Jandelaine.

  1. Complete the level 15 main scenario quest “Call of the Sea.”
  2. After completing “Call of the Sea,” you’ll unlock two blue quests in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks. It’s essential to complete both of these quests.
  3. To accept the quest for the aesthetician, go to Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (X:11.1, Y:11.0). The quest is called “Beauty Is Only Scalp Deep.” Accept it, and you’ll be tasked with traveling to three locations in Limsa Lominsa, Gridania, and Ul’dah. Completing this quest will unlock the aesthetician’s services.
  4. Whenever you need to change your character’s features, use the crystal bell in an inn room, pay 2,000 gil, and you’ll be able to make adjustments. Each Modern Aesthetician copy used adds hairstyles under the corresponding tab when you summon Jandelaine.

Farming Wolf Marks

Efficiently farming Wolf Marks may not have a specific method, but there’s an optimal time window to consider. Queueing for Frontline or The Feast at random times can lead to long wait times, but the queue times are usually better during the daily reset.

The daily reset occurs at 3:00 PM Server Time and is the ideal time for Frontline. Utilize the challenge log for extra marks to reach your goal faster.

While waiting in the queue for PVP, you can also level up Gathering and Crafting classes or complete job quests. This approach has its benefits, but the choice is yours to make. Queueing for Frontline during the daily reset is a significant time-saver.

Crystal Conflict – Endwalker’s New PVP Mode

We will now discuss the upcoming PVP overhaul. Earlier, we briefly touched upon this overhaul and what it could mean for FFXIV’s PVP in general. Scheduled for patch 6.1 Crystal Conflict is a new, small-scale PVP mode with an entirely separate reward system. 

It’s been stated by Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida that the possibility of The Feast closing down exists. At this point, it’s uncertain whether Wolf Marks will be used for rewards in the new PVP mode but we should expect anything to happen. 

This overhaul will bring several changes to the system of PVP and how jobs work in it. However, whether the currency will carry over is yet to be decided. It’s a good idea to use the time we have before the patch to farm Wolf Marks just in case. Be sure to follow the official channels of Final Fantasy XIV on social media for updates.

This brings us to the end of our Styled for Hire guide. We hope this information is helpful for you as you save the world of Hydaelyn from The Final Days and forge ahead!
