Essence Launches Hot Hair Try-On App

November 3, 2011  |  


You know how you can spot a hot hairstyle in a magazine but when your stylist tries it on you, it just doesn’t look the same—and then you’re mad, disappointed, and out of $60 or more? Essence has created a new app that can hopefully eliminate that problem by allowing you to experience new hairstyles virtually.

The Hot Hair Try-On app is like the interactive version on—You simple upload a photo of yourself and see how more than 300 different celebrity hairstyles and colors match your face shape and skin tone. The new on-the-go version also allows you to share looks on Facebook and receive hair tips from the magazine’s editors.

I’ll confess: I’ve tried the online version before and I’d probably try this too if I had an iPad. Check out the demo of the app which is available on iTunes.
