Q. Can I set a DEFAULT HAIR COLOR for every style to appear in as I try it on?
A. Yes, plus the Catalog itself! Click the "Hair Color" icon in the left control panel to bring up the Color Chart (see images at left) and use the time-saving AutoColor feature, which will also display the entire Catalog Gallery in your selected hue (you can view Emo & Scene styles in gorgeous purple). Revert back with the "original color" tab -- and even change HIGHLIGHT COLORS with the Highlights Chooser (see right).
Q. Can I upload MORE THAN ONE VERSION of my photo?
A. Yes! As a member you can upload as many pictures of yourself as you like, and switch back and forth (i.e., different expressions, different types and colors of clothing, etc.)
Automatic Color is easy to use. You can easily switch back to the original color of the hairstyle, or to any other color. Mouse over any image in the galley
to see the original photo plus information. Auto Color, Wizard Mode and Customized Search (see below) are powerful time savers!
Q. What type PHOTO OF MYSELF should I use, and how do I upload my picture to my private gallery?
A. Use a head-and-shoulders photo, looking directly at the camera, with your hair tied back -- make all of your face visible, as well as your ears -- this way you can try on hairstyles of any type! Be sure your snapshot is clear, focused and well-lit. A plain white background is best. To upload: Log into your account and click the "Add Photo" icon on the left panel (jpg format, at least 200x250 pixels, less than 1 Mb). The Virtual Hairstyle Selector includes a photo editor to optimize your picture; the adjustment console at the bottom lets you fine-tune the positioning if needed.
Q. Under "Makeup," how do I get the LIPSTICK and EYE MAKEUP to fit perfectly on my picture?
A. Select the "Align" tab in the Makeup panel and use the tracing tools (see image at left). Tracing is not needed for the Blush and Foundation.
Q. Is it possible to SAVE a finished image for instant access later?
A. Just select "Save to Favs" in the lower left panel. Favorites can be retrieved (click icon on left panel to view saved collection), added or deleted in seconds, and you can print or share your images as well.
Q. I'm a guy. How do I see virtual hairstyles for MEN?
A. Above the catalog, click "Styles," select "Men's," select the elasticity and length you want, click "Select" (or use the "Try On" icon in the hairstyles information area, outside the Selector). Click "Change Models," pick "Male," or upload your own photo!
Q. Will MORE hairstyles be added?
A. Great new styles of all types, all textures, all lengths, are added regularly!
Q. What HAIR COLORS in particular does the Selector offer?
A. The Selector's Hair Color Chart offers dozens of popular hues that wear many names: Brunette, Brown (Bronze, Caramel, Chestnut, Hazelnut, Mocha, etc.), Blond/Blonde (Platinum, Sandy, etc.), Raven/Black, Titian, Red (Burgundy, Ginger, Ruby, etc.), Grey/Gray, Purple/Violet, Auburn, Ash, Autumn, Copper, Gold/Golden, or White -- in tones ranging from Light to Medium to Dark!
Q. Does the catalog include any RETRO hairstyles from the past?
A. Yes! You can try retro-vintage hair looks from The Roaring 20s onward, including rolled bangs, 'pin-up girl' looks, poodle updos, 1930s bouncy waves, 1940s Hollywood cascades, pixies, bobs and so many more. You'll love seeing yourself in these legendary vintage hair designs (regardless of whether diamonds are your best friend)! There's over 190 unforgettable classic hairstyles in the catalog -- and of course, the color palette includes "platinum blonde"!Get started
Q. Can I narrow the search results to VERY SPECIFIC characteristics?
A. Yes. Click the "Advanced" tab to do a customized search. With this powerful feature you can try on, for example, ONLY the short, formal, curly styles which have bangs. Or find classic, medium, wavy, formal half-up styles. Presto! You decide exactly what you want to see.
Q. Can the Selector AUTOMATICALLY find the best hairstyles -- and hair colors -- for my FACE?
A. Certainly! Access Wizard mode by clicking "Hair Consultations" -- and in moments, try hairstyles & colors based on your face shape, skin tone, eye color, desired length and other specifics you enter (wear glasses?). For guys, too! There's also options for updo and formal --
the Wizard even matches styles to the formal dress you'll be
wearing (spaghetti straps? lace? asymmetrical?...). The Selector
can alter the suggestions any way you like.
Q. Where do I select MODELS until I upload my own photo?
A. On the left panel, click "Change Model" and choose female or male
(see images at right). And when you upload, remember that you can add
multiple versions of yourself (see below)!
Q. What if I have more QUESTIONS or need HELP?
A. For help anytime, click the blue "Help" button in the left panel -- there's also a customer service department ready to assist you. Most styles also include styling steps for home perms. As you can see in the video below, the Virtual Hairstyle Selector is a breeze to use. Have a blast and get in touch with your inner punk rocker (or chief executive)!
