With 4000+ designs and dozens of colors, the combinations are limitless!Create your new look
Q. Can I set a DEFAULT HAIR COLOR for every style to appear in as I try them on?
A. Easily, plus the Catalog itself! Click the "Hair Color" icon in the left control panel to access the color chart (see images at left) and use this time saver, which will also display the entire Catalog Gallery in your selected hue on a model of your choice (you can have those Scene styles come up purple the moment you click them). You can also switch colors on the fly or revert back to non-default -- and even change highlight colors with the Highlights Chooser (see right).
Q. Is it possible to SAVE a finished image for retrieval later?
A. Just select "Save to Favs" on the lower left panel. Favorites can be viewed (click the icon on the left panel), added or deleted in seconds, and you can share or print your images as well.
Automatic Haircolor Option
The Auto-Color feature is simple to use. Choose a default hue from the hair colors -- the hairstyle plus the 4000+ catalog gallery instantly updates. It works for all types of styles for both women and men. Reverting to original color for the style you're trying on will also show the original colors of the styles in the gallery. Mouseover any thumbnail to reveal the original photo plus information.
Q. What type PICTURE OF MYSELF should I use, and how do I upload my snapshot to my private gallery?
A. Use a head-and-shoulders photo, looking directly at the camera, with your hair tied back from your face, and ears uncovered -- this way you can try on any type of haircut! Make sure your picture is clear, focused and well-lit. A plain white background is best. To upload: Log onto your account and click the "Add Photo" icon in the left panel (jpg format, at least 200 x 250 pixels, and less than 1 Mb). The Haircut Generator includes a photo editor to touch up your picture; the adjustment controls at the bottom lets you fine-tune the positioning when needed.
Q. Under "Makeup," how do I get the LIPSTICK and EYE MAKEUP to fit perfectly on my picture?
A. Select the "Align" tab on the Makeup panel and use the tracing tools (see image at left). Tracing is not needed for the Foundation and Blush.
Q. Can I upload MORE THAN ONE VERSION of my photo?
A. Yes! As a member you can upload as many photos of yourself as you like, and switch back and forth (i.e., with or without necklace and glasses, different facial expressions, etc.)
Q. I'm a guy. How do I see haircuts for MEN?
A. Click "Change Models," pick "Male," or upload your own photo. Then click the "Hairstyles" icon, choose "Men's Hairstyles," then click "Continue," and pick the textures and lengths you want, click "Show Results" (or use the "Try On" icon in the hairstyles information area, outside the Generator).
Q. Will MORE haircuts be added?
A. Great new styles of all types are added regularly!
Q. What HAIR COLORS in particular does the Generator offer?
A. The Generator's Hair Color Chart offers dozens of popular hues that wear many names: Brown (Caramel, Bronze, Chestnut, Mocha, Hazelnut, etc.), Black/Brunette, Blond/Blonde (Platinum, Sandy, etc.), Gray/Grey, Red (Burgundy, Ginger, Ruby, etc.), Violet/Purple, Auburn, Ash, Autumn, Copper, Gold/Golden, or White -- in tones ranging from Light to Medium to Dark!
Q. Where do I choose MODELS until I upload my own picture?
A. In the left panel, click "Change Model" and select female or male (see images at right). And when you upload, remember that you can add multiple versions of your photo!
Q. Can the Generator AUTOMATICALLY find the best haircuts -- and hair colors -- for my FACE?
A. Certainly! Access Wizard mode by clicking "Hair Consultations" -- and in moments, try haircuts & 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 Generator can alter the suggestions any way you like!
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. You'll find that the Haircut Generator is a snap to use -- have a ball and get in touch with your inner punk rocker (or chief executive)!
