Q. Can I set a DEFAULT HAIR COLOR for every style to appear in as I try them on?
A. Easily! Click the "Hair Color" icon on the left control panel to access the color chart (see images at left) and use this time-saving feature (you can have styles and cuts show up purple as soon as 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" in the lower left panel. Favorites can be viewed (click the icon on the left panel), added or deleted in seconds, and you can print or share your images as well.
Q. What type PICTURE OF MYSELF should I use, and how do I upload my photo to my private gallery?
A. Use a head-and-shoulders picture, looking directly at the camera, with your hair tied back from your face, and ears showing -- this way you can try on any type of hairstyle! Make sure your snapshot is clear, focused and well-lit. A plain white background works 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 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. 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., with or without glasses, different expressions, etc.)
Q. I'm a woman who just dropped in. Are there any hairstyles for WOMEN?
A. Plenty! Click "Change Models," pick "Female," or upload your own picture. Then click the "Hairstyles" icon, choose "Women'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). The Wizard mode is for women, too -- and even has options for updos and formals.
Q. Where do I choose MODELS until I upload my own photo?
A. On the left panel, click "Change Model" and select "male" (see images at right). And when you upload, remember that you can add multiple versions of yourself and get totally expressive!
Q. Will MORE hairstyles 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: Black/Brunette, Blond/Blonde (Platinum, Sandy, etc.), Brown (Caramel, Bronze, Chestnut, Mocha, Hazelnut, etc.), Red (Burgundy, Ginger, Ruby, etc.), Gray/Grey, Violet/Purple, Auburn, Ash, Autumn, Copper, Gold/Golden, or White -- in tones ranging from Light to Medium to Dark!
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 tone, eye color, desired length and other specifics you enter (wear glasses?). 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 Online Hairstyle Generator is a snap to use -- have a ball and get in touch with your inner rockstar (or chief executive)!
