Q:

How can I see what a potential haircut looks like on me?

A:

You can use a virtual makeover tool to see how a potential haircut would look on you. Many fashion and beauty websites offer such tools.

Before you try on different haircuts, you have to upload a photograph of yourself. The photograph has to meet certain requirements, such as size, proper lighting, zoom and good quality. When taking the photograph, look directly into the camera, keep your hair away from your face and do not tilt or turn your head. Many virtual makeover tools include makeup and accessory options, so do not wear makeup or accessories when you are taking the photograph.
