Looking for a new hairstyle but can't decide which one you like best? Before a single snip is taken you can try on your favorite hairstyles thanks to free virtual makeover programs. These online programs allow you to upload a photo of yourself and super impose different hairstyles over your own hair. This gives you a general idea of how hairstyles will suit your face before you visit the salon.
For the best results it is best to use a picture of yourself that is face on and a close up. You should slick your own hair back against your head to prevent your own hair getting in the way of the super imposed hairstyle. The easiest way to do this is to take a few pictures of yourself with a digital camera. You can then upload those photos to your computer and resize them to a manageable size. Choose the best one out of the bunch and upload it to the online virtual makeover program and have a blast trying on new hairstyles from the comfort of your own home.
When trying on your new hairstyles look carefully at how the hair makes your face look. Does the hairstyle look balanced with your face shape? Is the style overwhelming for your face? Try on several and take notes of which ones work best. Narrow down your choices and print off the few best ones to take with you to the salon.
