Colour Palette Guide

Style Boutique 2 has an exciting feature of taking photos to unlock colours in the colour palette. These colours can be used for in various other parts of the game including hair and make-up colours.

To unlock colours in the colour palette, you simply travel to different locations through the city and take photos of certain environments or items. Then visit Primrose Park and show Rainbow the photo you have taken to unlock the colour. Rainbow will tell you if you have found a new colour or if the photo contains one you already have found.


For hints on colour locations, talk the NPC’s you have a rainbow exclamation mark above them and they’ll give you a hint of where a colour is located.

Some colours must have photos taken at certain times of the day or during different seasons. When visiting a location, you can press the L and R buttons to cycle through different views of the location. For example, cycling through the view at Cafetiere Close will allow you to view the chocolate cake scene.

The guide is separated into each colour section of the palette. Each section contains all the colours required for that set and the location you will find each colour. For example, to unlock Tabby Grey, visit Primrose Park during Morning/Afternoon and press L or R until you see the view with the cat sitting on the bench. Colours which are available from the beginning of the game are listed as default. All colours listed have the name from the EU/AU version of the game, some names are different in the Japanese version.

  1. This is so helpful! But I do have two questions. I have tried going to the cafe several times to get the
    'Tiramisu' and the 'Redcurrant Cake' colors. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I have already completed the design request for the tiramisu t-shirt, and I am wondering if that has anything to do with it. I am also having difficulty with the 'Exotic Grape' color as well as the 'Rooibos Tea'.

    1. There seems to be a slight bug with the Tiramisu and Recurrant cake colours. I made a post about on the Bugs & Glitches guide. It seems the events doesn't occur for some people. All you need to do is just save and reset your game a few times until the people appear. I think it took me about 6 re-loads to get Tiramisu.
      For Exotic Grape you need to talk to the Cafe owner at Tropica Beach and take a photo of the fruit platter. The event doesn't always happen so just keep clicking on her until it does.
      For Rooibos Tea, you need to trigger the tea drinking event with an NPC at the Rose Garden.
      Hope these help!

    2. I got the Tiramisu and Redcurrant Cake colors! However when I took the Redcurrant Cake picture, the character referred to the cake as a 'Berry' cake. I was still able to get the shade from that picture though. Thank you!

    3. Actually for Rooibos Tea I didn't have to trigger the tea drinking event. All I did was keep going to the rose garden for tea until another person had tea with me and the tea pot was in the middle. I hope this helps someone!

      I know how to get the exotic grape colour!just go to tropica beach and talk to the people until the cafe owner comes up.when she asks "do you want to try our special dish?" Press yes and a bowl of fruit appears. :)

    5. It doesn't work for me I tried that so many times

    6. If you are having trouble with finding the colours, try the save and reset trick. If the NPC you need isn't to be seen, save your game and quit. Reload the game and revist the location. Keep repeating this until the NPC appears. This is the best method to triggering the NPC to appear and many players have found success with it. Make sure you are looking for the colour during the correct month/season.
      Is there a particular colour you are having difficulty with?

    7. ok so I've tried getting exotic purple but it won't work I've tried everything..

      Delete
    8. The best way to get it is to try the save and reset trick (listed in the comment above). That helped me get a lot of the tricky colours. It will appear again so don't worry about missing out on it.

  2. Thank you for making this blog. Just a note for your guide: Bunny Purple is night only (can't get it during the day). Do you have an tips for Merry-Go-Green? It doesn't work no matter how many times/pics I show Rainbow.

    P.S. Is there any chance of you doing a post about the content inside the "Girls Mode 3 guide"?

    1. Thanks for the thank you! Yes, I do need to fix that up in the guide. Merry-Go-Green seems to be a tricky one. It seems like the photo has to have a certain part of the Merry-Go-Round in it, so maybe try taking a few different snaps to show Rainbow.

      I was planning on making a post about the Girls Mode 3 guide, but it may not be for a little while as I have a few other guides to finish first.

      Delete
    2. Lol, no need to thank the thanks. Just trying to help with any useful details during my play through. =)

      It seems like the MerryGoGreen changes from a daytime colour to a sunset colour & a final evening colour. (I'll have to check again to see if the daybreak colour is the same as the sunset). I took a pic again in the evening showing as much of the center pole as possible & finally got the colour. Now back to the stupid RNG 'Exotic Grape' =P

      Delete
    3. To get Exotic Grape, just keep talking to the Tropica Beach Cafe owner until you see the fruit platter with the grapes on it.

      Delete
    4. Note: Shrub Green can be gotten in summer during daytime.

      Yea, I must be unlucky, I've been trying for over 2.5+ hrs but Jewel only talks about durians, pineapples, mangos, lychees, & OJ.

    9. I have made some guides on how to unlock certain colours such as exotic grape so check them out for tips. These colours are the hardest ones to unlock and it's best to use the save and reload trick to unlock them.

    10. I am having trouble with the garden gate colour. Is it something seasonal? Thank you

      Delete
    11. If that view isn't working, try taking pictures from a different view. Some players have had success taking the photo when you first enter the park. Use L+R to cycle through the views. I took my photo during Winter if that helps :)

  3. I'm having problems gettin the golden star color, every time I take a picture of my character in the stage, Rainbow comments on the Bass Charcoal color. Is there something wrong or it's season specific or something?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't believe it is season specific, I unlocked it in November. Maybe try visiting at a different time and taking a few different pictures. I believe the colour may be the lights or cymbals on the drum kit.

    2. I got Golden star at bun bun funland, where the stage is..

      Delete
    3. I checked my colour palette and the game lists it as found at the Live Music Club. But I know some Japanese players have found the colour at the stage at BunBun Funland as well. Maybe there are some slight differences between Style Savvy and Style Boutique (which is the one I have).

      Delete
    4. I've had to restart my game recently and I managed to get Golden Star at both places with Style Boutique, I think it just depends on any glitches.

      Delete
    5. The developers must've used the same colour for two locations which is funny :) The official guide books lists it as the Live Music Club

  4. "(Talk to the NPC second from the left to trigger the ‘redcurrant cake’ event)" By second to the left... does that count the waiter/whoever is in the cafe? Or just the people outside it? I just want to make sure I'm talking to the right person...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, so if you are looking at the screen there should be up to four characters shown. It is the second character from the left, but the waiter shouldn't be appearing when the event is available. Just enter the Cafetiere Close area and a NPC may appear with a musical note and this is who you need to talk to. Try saving and reloading the game until the NPC appears, this trick worked for me.

    2. Don't worry. I finally got it when I took the picture as soon as I entered Primrose Park. Right now, I'm trying to get Begonia. Everytime I snap a picture of the terrance in Tropica Beach and show it to Rainbow, she says that I already have a color (Mahogany) but I grt Begonia. Am I supposed to get it in a certain season or time? Please help!!!

    3. Try taking a photo whilst visiting the Tropica Beach Cafe as the flowers may be in a better view. The colour is taken from the pink flowers hanging up.

    1. Maybe try taking it at a later time and from a different angle. The night time cycle seems to start quite late. The colour isn't a season specific one.

    3. I did get Sylvan Night a few minutes later though, which I'd been struggling with. First time looking at this particular color guide though.

    4. Wait wait wait, I was looking through my colors, and Sylvan Night isn't one of them. O.o

      Okay.... but I DO have Moonless Sky.... Even though it was from taking the picture from the same view you have Sylvan Night...

      I reloaded, and showed her the big overview of the park, and got Moonless Sky. Moonless Sky is indeed in my color pallet. I am officially confused. I guess I remembered wrong earlier..?

      Delete
    5. The colour is called Sylvan Night in Style Boutique 2 (the European/Australian version) and is the last colour in the green palette. It may have another name in the North America version of Style Savvy.
      Yes, Moonless Sky is part of the Blues/Purples Palette and is the last colour. Both are found in Primose Park so they may be found in similuar photos. I found one both in the month of December in my game.

    Replies
    1. You don't need to reset to get the colours. You can either just play and hope the events show up (if you're lucky) or just save and restart the game until it occurs. I just found reloading the game a good method as the events just wouldn't trigger for me.

      Delete
  11. Having a difficult time getting Peaceful Purple! The system clock is set to 12:53 A.M. and I've taken pictures of everything at The Meadows and it still won't give it to me. Is there a specific time or season?

    Replies
    1. You can also unlock Peaceful Purple by taking a photo of Meadow Walk. The colour is part of the night sky and a good photo to take is with the Meadow Walk flowers in the background.
      I unlocked Peaceful Purple during the month of November, I don't believe it's season specific.

    2. it was nearly 3am when I tried to get peaceful purple in winter. Rainbow didnt accept the picture. Same with sylvan night. Does the snow affect it?

      Delete
    3. Peaceful Purple is a photo of the Flower Garden at the Meadows at night. The photo should include the sky with the flowers beds on the lower half of the picture. You can press L or R to cycle through the views when visiting the Meadows to get the view where your character is standing by the brick walls looking at the flower garden. Or try showing Rainbow a photo of the Flower Garden as well. The snow may be the issue you are having and may need to take the photo without it.

    4. For Sylvan Night, it is the forest area on the opposite side of the pond at Primrose Park. Try taking the photo really late at night (like before midnight).

  18. Just a head's up for any NA players struggling to get Exotic Grape, I actually had to talk to the shop owner on the beach while she was in front of the cafe (as a pink NPC icon) to be invited inside for the fruit platter event. For me, just visiting her shop wasn't triggering the event and I think that is why.

    1. Yes, this is how you unlock it in all versions. But sometimes when you talk to her, she won't always give you the grape platter which a lot of people seem to encounter.

  19. I've been really struggling to get Blue Lagoon and Green Shadow, are they season specific by any chance?

    1. The photo for Blue Lagoon must be taken during the day and I don't believe it is season specific, I unlocked it during November. Green Shadow is the view of Cafetiere Close when you first enter at night and this one is not season specific either.

    2. Thank you. I finally got blue lagoon, for some reason I had it in my head that it had to be evening, oops. However, still can't get green shadow to ativate. :/ I've taken pictures all around the main area using the LR buttons and even while sitting in the cafe. Not sure why I'm not getting it. I'll have to just keep trying I guess.

      Delete
    3. Sounds like a tricky one. I believe the colour is either the green metal railing around the cafe or the archway (I assume it's a subway entrance maybe). It definitely is a night time colour, maybe try taking it at like 11pm or something. I don't think they would've changed the location for the NA version because in the Japanese and EU/AU versions, it's the location in the picture.

The best picture to take is the zoomed out view of the park where the view has a large amount of trees in view around the edge of the screen. I will update the guide with a photo of the winter colours soon.

    2. It shouldn't be a seasonal colour, it's just tricky to trigger. What you need to do for redcurrent cake/tiramisu is to keep exiting and re-entering Cafetiere Close until the NPC appears second from the left with a musical note. I found the best trick was to save and reload my game a few times until it trigger, took about 6 tries for myself.
      For Exotic Grape, keep talking to Jewel until she serves you the grape platter and then take the photo. It can take a few tries to get her to give you the right one for the photo.

    1. You can unlock the colours at any time of the year, no need to alter your 3DS clock. If you time travel, it can break the brands at the Exhibition Hall. The best trick to get the colours is to just save and reload the game and enter the area over and over until the event triggers. Only takes a few tries.

  29. It should be added to the Taylor Green color (clock) that it doesn't work at night. I tried it around 9 pm and it didn't work. Maybe it's only in the morning and afternoon. Thank you for this guide by the way! You are the best!

    1. These are tricky colours. The best trick is to save and reload your game until they appear. Visit Cafetiere Close and if the second NPC from the left is not there. Save your game, exit to the 3DS menu and restart the game. Visit Cafietere Close to see if they are there. Continue these steps until they appear. Only took myself about 5 tries.

    1. Talk to Jewel who will let you enter the cafe and take a photo there. You will be able to get a closer shoot of the begonia flowers.

    2. Did you try during the morning as then you can get a good shot of them?

  33. Can you please tell me a easier way to get the Celebration Pink

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Easiest way to get Celebration Pink is to serve either Arabella or Adelaide at your boutique and they will invite you to the restaurant. Visit the restaurant via the train station straight afterwards and take the photo when they are taking to you with the flowers in the background.

  34. And its kinda hard to get Garden Gate on Yellow-Green colors, someone help!

    1. For Garden Gate, either take a photo of the view you first get when you enter Primrose Park or press L or R to scroll through the views to get the one where you character has the rose display in the background with the gate visible. The second view is a closer up version if you are having trouble with the first view.

  36. Thanks, I got Celebration Pink and later I will get Garden Gate cause my 3ds is charging, and also I have a another question, how do you get Exotic Grape?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For Exotic Grape, you need to go to Tropica Beach and talk to Jewel who runs the cafe. The scene that appears is random, but when she gives you the food item with the grapes in it, take a picture when your character is looking at it.

  37. Its really hard for me to get, every time I go there Jewel/The Cafe Owner is always talking about Mangos for me, please show me a easier way to get Exotic Grape

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The trick is to just keep talking to her until you get the scene that has the grapes in it. A good trick is to save and reload your game and visit Tropica Beach until she gives it to you. That is the easiest way to do it as it is random on when it will appear.

  38. Is there another way to get tiramisu?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, this is the only way. The trick with this colour is to just keep re-entering the area until the second NPC from the left appears with the symbol above them. A good way to do it is to save and reload your game and keep trying. Took myself about 5 or 6 tries till I got it.

  39. Finding it really difficult to get peaceful purple. I've tried everything suggested and nothing. Is there specific season or times?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can also take the photo of the Flower Garden at the Meadows at night for a good picture. It's not a season specific colour but for night time ones, it's best to take them when it is after 9 pm.

      Delete
    2. I've also tried that but it hasn't worked :(

      Delete
    3. Peaceful Purple is a photo of the Flower Garden at the Meadows at night. The photo should include the sky with the flowers beds on the lower half of the picture. You can press L or R to cycle through the views when visiting the Meadows to get the view where your character is standing by the brick walls looking at the flower garden.

  40. I am so frustrated that I can't get Merry Go Green, I have taken over 40 pictures already and still can't get it, is it season exclusive or something, can someone please tell me?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Merry-Go-Green seems to be a tricky one. It seems like the photo has to have a certain part of the Merry-Go-Round in it. Try taking a photo of it during the evening with the center pole in focus as people have told me that worked for them.

    3. It is a night time colour. Try visiting Bun Bun Funland after 9pm as it is definitely night time during that time in the game. The photo needs to include the pole in the centre of the Merry Go Round.

  44. Hello! Thank you so much for putting up this great guide of a blog. It really helped me on some parts of the game since there were no other clearer guides I know of that painstakingly went the hassle of gathering such details of the game. Keep it up for future fans and players for the series.

    Now, I really wanted to ask something: HOW IN THE WORLD (in Beaumonde City at least) WILL ONE GET THAT REDCURRANT CAKE?! T^T That thing, along with the Bouffant and Afro hairstyles, have eluded me till now. Well, the good thing about it is that I get to go back to the game and still on the completing stuff but still.

    Also, what are your some thoughts/comments on the new Style Savvy 4/New Style Boutique 3/garuzumodofo XD ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For Redcurrant Cake, you need to talk to the second NPC from the left with the icon at Cafetiere Close. Here's the problem with that, it's random on when they appear. So what you need to do and this is how I got the colour as well, visit Cafetiere Close and see if the NPC is there. If they are not, save your game and exit. Restart the game and revisit Cafetiere Close. Just repeat this until the NPC appears. It took myself about 6 tries before they appeared.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and I'm happy the guides were useful! I'm excited for the new game! I will be blogging about it at https://newstyleboutique3stylingstarguide.blogspot.com.au/

    2. I am doing that since you suggested it before on a certain comment above me. Still, I won't give up on that. Also, yay for the new blog ^_^ I also hope they will release it earlier in NA than Fashion Forward did.

      Delete
    3. Keep trying with the save and re-entering thing. I can't recommend any other methods as that's the only trick I've seen work.

      I'm excited too! Hopefully it won't take forever for NA to get it

    1. Try taking a new photo of the location and show Rainbow that. Otherwise if that doesn't work, save and reload the game. I remember I had this happen to me once with a different colour and I just left it and eventually she accepted the photo.

      Delete
  49. I've given rainbow three different copies of identical pictures mirroring the one you posted for moonless sky and she says she found a color but I already have it but I don't have moonless sky any ideas how I can fix it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can unlock Moonless Sky with photos of Primrose Park from a different angle. Try giving her a bunch of different photos to see if it triggers it. Otherwise, maybe save and restart your game to see if it appears. I remember encountering the same thing in my game where she said I had a colour but it wasn't appearing.

      Delete
    2. I gave her a bunch of different views and I kept not working I reloaded my game two or three times and just kept giving her the same four photos and she just randomly accepted one of a full view at night after about the fifth try or so but I must say your guide is absolutely amazing and thank you because thanks to your guide I now have all my colors every single one

      Delete
    3. I had to do that exact same trick with another colour, so I guess the game just can't recognise some colours sometimes.

      Thanks for visiting my guides! So happy they helped you find all the colours!

    1. I've written a detailed guide about unlocking Exotic Grape which you can find linked in this guide. It's a tricky one to unlock. Just keep visiting the beach until Jewel appears and gives you the fruit platter. The trick is to just save and reload your game and keep visiting the beach until the event triggers. Good luck!

  51. Hi I was wanting to know if there is a way to tell specific styles for color categories? Like blue is bold r yellow is lively? I'm working in the hair salon a lot and having trouble with finding the right colors sometimes when the client doesn't specify a color. If anyone could help, that'd be great! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's a bit of trial and error to figure this one out. I do know purple is bold, orange is lively, white is gothic. Basically how I work it out is look at the hair colour of the main characters (especially the five sisters) and then match that colour to the style they wear. For example, Callie wears bold and has purple hair. Be sure to check out the Five Star Fashion Show guides as I list the hair colours that match certain styles there.

  52. Hi! How can I get Tiramisu and Redcurrant cake if I talked with the NPC but didn't take a photo? I think I missed the opportunity...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The event does occur more than once, so don't worry. If you want to get it soon instead of waiting for it to happen again, use the save and reset trick. Basically you just keep visiting the location and if the NPC doesn't appear. Save your game and restart it back up. Keep visiting the location and repeating this trick until they appear. Took myself about 7 tries to get it.

  53. Hello, it looks like the Ivy Olive color can only be gotten in Spring/Summer as well as Moonless Night. I tried getting both of them in Winter and neither shot worked, so I changed my settings to Summer and the same angles worked. I'm still struggling to get Garden Gate though. I've tried in Winter and Summer, and I also showed Rainbow an old picture I took during Spring and none of them have worked. (All were taken in day and I tried at night in Winter as well.)

    1. Actually, scratch that bit about Moonless Sky, I'm having trouble with that one as well. I think I just have to try until the sky is darker based on your image.

    2. Update: I got Moonless Night from a full shot of Primrose Park rather than the closeup by the swan boat.

      Delete
    3. Yes some players have managed to unlock colours at different angles and times. I know some players in different regions have unlocked some colours at different times.
      For Garden Gate, it should be the view when you enter the park. You can also try the view where your character is standing on the path with the round garden and greenhouse in the background. Try around late April as I've seen photos work around that season.

    1. I took my photo in summer if that helps. Another view I've seen that works is around 9-10am during summer and the view with your character standing in front of the clock with the base in view. So the close up view rather than the far away one.

  55. I know this isn't colour palette related, but in most photos, you're wearing the same make-up (the fine angle one). Can you tell me how you did it?

    1. I wear pretty basic looking make-up in game that I just pick from the make-up categories. No sets or anything. I think for this look, I went with mainly brown tones for the eye parts.

    1. Emerald Ocean can be unlocked with any photo of the sea during the morning and evening in the summer months. Give that a try and see if it helps. I know I had the same issue with some colours when Rainbow tells you that, it seems like a slight glitch or something.
