Before using Savvy Manager, you should back up your Girls Mode/Style Savvy/Style Boutique game save(s) using Checkpoint, in case something goes wrong.

Star Stylist/Styling Star players, if you're playing as a male character, or as a female character with a unique eye shape (ex. Angélique), it is highly recommended you don't update your shop data at Shopdo. As such features are not normally available in-game, you may risk a possible ban when doing so, as the character data will be part of your Shopdo.
