Q. Can I set a DEFAULT HAIR COLOR for every haircut to appear in as I try them on?
A. Easily, plus the Catalog itself! Click the "Hair Color" icon on the left control panel to access the color chart (see image at left) and use this time-saving feature, 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 instant 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 to see later?
A. Just select "Save to Favs" in the lower left panel. Favorites can be viewed (click the icon in the left panel), added or deleted in seconds, and you can print or share your images as well.
How to Set Automatic Hair Color for 4000+ Haircuts
The Auto-Color feature is a snap to use. Just choose a default hair color from the chart, and the 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 gallery thumbnail to reveal the original photo plus information.
Q. What type PICTURE OF MYSELF should I use, and how do I upload my photo into my private gallery?
A. Use a head-and-shoulders picture, looking directly toward the camera, with your hair pulled all the way back, and ears uncovered -- this way you can try any type of hairstyle! Make sure your snapshot is clear, focused and well-lit. A plain white background is recommended. To upload: Log onto your account and click the "Add Photo" icon on the left panel (jpg format, at least 200 x 250 pixels, and less than 1 Mb). The Haircut Simulator includes a photo editor to touch up your picture; the adjustment controls 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 photo?
A. Select the "Align" tab on the Makeup panel and use the tracing tools (see image at left). Tracing is not required for the Blush and Foundation.
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 facial expressions, with or without jewelry and glasses, etc.)
Q. I'm a guy. How do I see haircuts for MEN?
A. Click "Change Models," pick "Male," or upload your own picture. 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 simulator). View hundreds of men's styles, with options for short, medium, long, straight, wavy and curly combinations. For guys who wonder, "how would I look blonde?" or "what would I look like with short hair?", now you can see -- as well as other new possibilities (try electric highlights?).
Q. Will MORE haircuts be added?
A. Great new cuts & styles of all types are added regularly!
Q. What HAIR COLORS in particular does the simulator offer?
A. The simulator's Hair Color Chart offers dozens of popular hues that wear many names: Blond/Blonde (Platinum, Sandy, etc.), Brown (Caramel, Bronze, Chestnut, Mocha, Hazelnut, etc.), Black/Raven, Brunette, Violet/Purple, Titian, Red (Burgundy, Ginger, Ruby, etc.), Gray/Grey, 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 photo?
A. On 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 pictures of yourself!
Q. Can the Simulator 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 complexion, 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 haircut styles to the formal dress you'll be wearing (lace? spaghetti straps? asymmetrical?...). The Simulator can alter the style & color 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 Simulator is a breeze to use -- have a ball and get in touch with your inner punk rocker (or chief executive)!
