Playing online hair and make-up games is a great way for future stylists to experiment with fashion and try out new looks in a safe virtual space. If your kids are fans of the Barbie characters and dolls, you can find all kinds of great hair and make-up games that feature Barbie and her friends as your makeover models.
Snip 'n Style
In "Snip 'n Style," which can be found on the official Barbie website, you get to play the hairstylist who gives Barbie an all-new look. You can either play the game in timed mode, in which you must create a specific look for Barbie within a set time limit, or in free mode, in which you can experiment with creating any type of look you want. Follow the steps to wash, blow dry, cut, style and add accessories to Barbie's hair to create the perfect look.
In "Fashion Flash," also offered on the official Barbie website, your job is to help Barbie's friend Grace put together the perfect outfit for school. You can either play "Fashion Flash" in challenge mode, in which you have to create a specific outfit, or in just-for-fun mode, in which you get to play designer and come up with a look that's all your own. Click the options on the left side of the screen to pick out Grace's hairstyle and customise her make-up, then choose her outfit from her wardrobe to create her style.
"Superstar Makeover," another game from the official Barbie website, puts you in the stylist's chair to design the perfect hair and make-up look for Barbie. Use the options at the top of the game screen to pick out Barbie's complexion, hairstyle, hair colour, eye colour, eye shadow, mascara, lipstick and lip gloss. Finish your look by choosing accessories, hair clips and sunglasses, then click next to see your look on the front cover of "Fashion Fever" magazine.
Glamorous Barbie Makeover
In "Glamorous Barbie Makeover," which can be found on the DressupGirl website, you get to design a new look for one of four Barbie dolls. Click the options at the top of the screen to choose from the extensive range of lipstick, brow shapes, mascaras and blush to make up her face. Finish your look by picking out a hairstyle, outfit and shoes. Once you've got the perfect look, click "OK" to see your style at the centre of a beautiful background.
