Try on a new haircut or color with this app
Making a drastic hair change can be both exciting and stressful—and you need to be 100-percent sure before you sit down in the salon chair. One of the best ways to preview a potential new look is with an app that allows you to upload a photo and superimpose the changes your considering—and the latest is L’Oreal Professionnel’s Style My Hair, which was created with the augmented-reality experts at Modiface.
This app is so easy to use that you have absolutely no excuse for not trying a new look before booking a salon appointment. First you upload one of the many selfies you have on your phone and select a style or color. Here’s what I would look like with purple hair—and it literally took five seconds. You can also use the app to create mood boards, which can help you communicate exactly what you want when you sit down with your stylist or colorist.
Even if you’re not thinking about making a change, this app is a fun way to mess with your friends and family… Should I send this to my husband while he’s a work today?
