Q. Can I set an AUTOMATIC 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 image at left) and use this time-saving feature (you can have those Emo styles come 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" on 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 toward the camera, with your hair pulled back from your face, and ears uncovered -- this way you can try on any type of hairstyle! Make sure your snapshot is well-lit, clear and focused. A plain white background is 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 Maker includes a photo editor to touch up your picture; the adjustment controls at the bottom lets you fine-tune the positioning if needed.
How to Set Automatic Hair Color for 4000+ Styles
The Auto-Color feature is easy to use. Just choose a default hair color from the chart, and the catalog instantly updates every design. It works for all types of styles for both men and women. Reverting to original color for the style you're testing will also show the original colors of the styles in the gallery. Mouse over any gallery thumbnail to reveal the original photo plus information.
Q. Under "Makeup," how do I get the LIPSTICK and EYE MAKEUP to fit precisely on my picture?
A. Select the "Align" tab in the Makeup panel 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 picture?
A. Yes! As a member you can upload as many photos of yourself as you like, and switch back and forth (i.e., with or without earrings and glasses, different facial expressions, etc.)
Q. I'm a guy. How do I see hairstyles for MEN?
A. Click "Change Models," select "Male," or upload your own picture. Then click the "Hairstyles" icon, choose "Men's Hairstyles," then click "Continue," and select the lengths and textures you want, click "Show Results" (or use the "Try On" icon in the hairstyles information area, outside the Maker). 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 with bangs?" or "what would I look like blonde?", now you can see -- as well as other new possibilities (try electric highlights?).

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 versions of yourself!
Q. Can the Hairstyle Maker AUTOMATICALLY find the best styles 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. 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?...).
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.
