Q. Can I set an AUTOMATIC HAIR COLOR for every hairstyle to appear in as I try them on?
A. Absolutely! Click the "Hair Color" icon in the left control panel to access the color chart (see images at left) and use this time-saving feature (you can have those Emo 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" on 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.
Q. What type PHOTO OF MYSELF should I use, and how do I upload my picture into my private gallery?
A. Use a head-and-shoulders snapshot, 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 picture 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 Hairstyle 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 "Extras," how do I get the LIPSTICK and EYE MAKEUP to fit perfectly on my picture?
A. Select the green "Align Makeup" tab at the bottom of the palettes 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., different facial expressions, with or without glasses and earrings, etc.)
Q. I'm a guy. How do I see hairstyles 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 lengths and textures you want, click "Show Results" (or use the "Try On" icon in the hairstyles information area, outside the generator).
Q. Will MORE hairstyles be added?
A. Great new cuts & styles of all types are added on a regular basis!
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.), Violet/Purple, Titian, Red (Burgundy, Ginger, Ruby, etc.), Gold/Golden, Gray/Grey, Auburn, Ash, Autumn, Copper, or White -- in tones ranging from Light to Medium to Dark!
Q. Where do I choose MODELS until I upload my own photo?
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 yourself!
Q. Can the Generator 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 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 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. Just 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 Digital Hairstyle Generator online app is a cinch to use -- have a ball and get in touch with your inner punk rocker (or chief executive)!
