Try on Hairstyles With The InStyle Virtual Makeover Tool

July 02, 2011 2:28 PM

Francine from Mississauga, Ontario wrote in to ask us for hairstyle suggestions for any age. While I love any opportunity to play makeover, choosing the right cut and color really depends on a person’s face, complexion and hair texture. We could say “bangs and bobs are in” but they’re not necessarily right for you.

Fortunately, there is an app for that. InStyle Magazine’s Virtual Makeover Tool allows you to upload a photo of yourself and try on the latest celebrity hairstyles and makeup looks.

Simply sign up for a free account, upload a photo of yourself – preferably with your own hair pulled back – and see what you’d look like with Tyra’s, Scarlett’s, Pippa’s or Oprah’s latest hairstyle. Once you’ve picked a style, you can adjust the fit on your face and change the color to find the look that’s right for you.

It’s the best way to browse the latest hair trends, be adventurous with your hair without taking any risks and, at the very least, have a good laugh.

You can share your “after photos” by email, through social media or on your blog to get your friends’ opinions. We also recommend you save your favorite looks to your desktop, print them and bring them in to your stylist.

Try the tool now.

    You completed some fine points there. I did a search on the topic and found most people will have the same opinion with your blog.

    Also, for those of you who think it is somehow racist to focus on Muslim honor killings I ask this, how? Islam is not a race it is a belief. And, if you didnt know, Arabs are Caucasians. So are Turks, Persians and Pakistanis.
