How to Set Automatic Haircolor for 4000+ Styles
The Auto-Color feature is easy to use. Set a default from the popout hair color chart, and the catalog gallery instantly updates. It works for all types of styles for both women and men. Reverting to original color for the style you're trying on will also show the original colors of the styles in the gallery. Mouseover any thumbnail to reveal the original photo plus information.
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, head fully vertical, hair pulled all the way back from your face, and ears uncovered -- 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 Virtual Hair Gallery includes a photo editor to touch up your picture; the adjustment controls along the bottom let you fine-tune the positioning if needed.
Q. Under "Extras," how do I get the LIPSTICK & Lip Gloss Simulator to match the shape of my lips?
A. Choose "Edit Photo" in the left panel; continue till you reach the lipstick tracer screen (see left).
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 jewelry, etc.)
Q. I'm a guy. How do I see hairstyles for MEN?
A. Click "Change Models," pick "Male," or upload your own picture. Then click the "Hairstyles" icon, select "Men's Hairstyles," then click "Continue," and choose the lengths and textures you want, click "Show Results" (or use the "Try On" icon in the hairstyles information area, outside the Finder).
Q. Will MORE hairstyles be added?

Q. Can the Hair Gallery 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?). For guys, too! There's also options for updo and formal -- the Wizard even matches styles to the formal dress you'll be wearing (lace? spaghetti straps? asymmetrical?...). You 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 Virtual Hair Gallery is a breeze to use -- try on hairstyles online and get in touch with your inner punk rocker (or chief executive)!
