Free Virtual Hairstyle Websites

If you're looking for a change of hairstyle but aren't quite sure what cut will flatter your face look no further than the Internet. There are free virtual hairstyle websites that can help you decide if you should go short or perhaps get that perm you've thought about since you were a kid. By uploading an image of your face, you can digitally "try on" hundreds of styles before you meet the shears.

<p> is an all-inclusive site that has forums, articles, a virtual hairstyler and a hair consultation feature. The hairstyler lets you upload your own photo or use a model's image with your skin tone to try on celebrity hairstyles, whether they be casual, grunge or formal. The hair consultation makeover asks you to input your style preferences, and in return you get instant hairstyle suggestions. You can post the results on the My Hair---Your Say section and get feedback from other users.

Ivillage Makeover

If celebrity hair entices you but you'd like to change your make-up colours as well, visit's makeover centre. Here you can upload a photo and change everything from your eye colour (contacts) to whitening your teeth! This site is great fun and very easy to use. You can save, print or e-mail your new look too, and no registration is required.

Hollywood Makeover

The "InStyle" Hollywood makeover takes things one step further with customisable hairstyles. Like Golden Hawn's hair but want it a little longer? Simply click and drag and you have a new length. You can also experiment with lipstick, lip gloss and make-up shades the stars are wearing with a click of the mouse. It's easy to see yourself in the current beauty trends. And yes, it's free.

Garnier Fructis

Garnier has created a unique website that not only allows you to try out new hairstyles but also to see what you would have looked like if you could go back in time. Simply upload a photo or use a stock image and pick a decade---from the '50s to the present. Remember Farrah Fawcett hair? You can try it on with just a few clicks.

<p> requires registration because it allows you to build a three-dimensional image of your face so you can try on celebrity hair and see how you would look from every angle. This will be saved to your profile so you don't have to create it each time you visit the site. Once you input what style you're craving---punk, short, curly, teen or men's---you will be offered style suggestions to help you pick the right look.
