Much has been written and said about try on hairstyles over the years, that is where a person is able to take and upload their own photo, and then see themselves with a variety of different hairstyles, hair colors, in all lengths, shapes, and sizes, to see if something suits them or not.


This risk-free approach of trying on a virtual hairstyle before physically having it done has saved countless people from making the wrong decision and ending up with hairstyle disasters.


You can try on a new hairdo to visually see if it will suit your face shape, complexion, get styling tips and other hair care advice, and then share the looks with your family, friends, for second opinions, and finally with your hairstylist during your salon visit and consultation.


All of this can be done from the comfort of your own home, using your phone or desktop to take your photo, save it, and put you in a hairstyle makeover nirvana land.


Do virtual hairstyles really help people out?

The short answer is a big YES.

As a hairstylist, I can honestly say that when things have gone wrong for me it was only because communication was not clear. Either my client didn’t explain themselves very well, or my interpretation of what they asked for was skewed.

I learnt very quickly that my perception about curly hair, the color red, blonde, short hair, or anything else was often not what my clients meant at all.


I would often turn to images both online and offline to cross check what my clients meant before diving in and making changes that were in some cases irreversible.


This is where virtual hairstyles proved extremely helpful to both me and my clients because the clarification that I was seeking was Infront of me, with a few hairstyles and hair colors that they liked, hated, etc.


All I had left to do was to let them know if it was possible, a good or bad idea.

Do Try On Hairstyles Apps Look Real?

Some do and some don’t, how the Hairstylechannel app uses real hairstyles, created by stylists worldwide and not computer-generated ones.

Each hairstyle has been created, shot on location, and then digitally edited and processed for the virtual application.


The trick to getting the best results are to take a photo at eye level straight on with your hair pulled back off your face. A well lit photo will also help make all hair colors look natural, and don’t forget to smile…

Try on hairstyles are great for makeovers.

There comes a time when you are feeling flat, feeling like a change, something different, something significant enough to give you that lift. It could be for a variety of reasons that you feel this way, but you do know that a new haircut and hair color will get you on that path to feeling new and refreshed.


Using a try on hairstyle tool is great here because it gives you some time to make sure that you didn’t act out too soon or make a bad decision because you simply needed that makeover.

Indeed a try on hairstyle tool is extremely helpful for people that are making the biggest changes, where there is more to get wrong if you don’t get it right to begin with.
