5 Fun Apps To Help You Choose Your Next Hairstyle

Not a day goes by where I'm not amazed by the technology we have in the palm of our hands. Smartphones really are the gift that keeps on giving, providing lots of incredible uses for different situations. As you're well aware, all smartphones come with the ability to download various apps. Mostly, you download apps to aid your productivity, ones to shop, or ones to play some fun games. But, did you know you can find apps that do more than this? Specifically, some apps can be used to help you find your next hairstyle!

It sounds ridiculous, but modern technology makes it possible. How many times have you thought about changing your hair, only to back out because you don't know what it would look like? Or, even worse, you take the plunge and get a new hairstyle that looks terrible. Now, you're stuck waiting for your hair to grow back out, or you pay to fix the horrific look. 

Both of these problems will be a thing of the past if you download some of these interesting apps:

Hairstyle Try On

The name gives it away, but Hairstyle Try On lets you try different hairstyles from the comfort of your home. You'll notice a running theme with most of these apps as they use the same technology. Essentially, you open your selfie camera and let it scan your face. From here, you choose different hairstyles and watch them appear on your face. 

This app is one of the best as it provides a plethora of different hairstyles. It also lets you pick between a variety of hair colors, including highlights. Now, I read a guide on every type of highlight technique explained, and it opened my mind to the different ways you can highlight your hair. Before, I assumed there were only one or two ways of doing it! This app lets you look at all the different highlight varieties, making it easy to make your decision. No matter your style, you will find it on the Hairstyle Try On app. 

Your Perfect Hairstyle

Again, Your Perfect Hairstyle works almost exactly the same as the previous app. The main difference is in the choice of hairstyles and colors you can pick from. Personally, I like this app because it lets you tweak smaller aspects of your hair. For instance, you can play around with the fringe to see how a slightly different cut might look on you. It lets you tweak the straightness of your hair, adding subtle or obvious curls. 

Of course, like all good apps, you can change your hair color as well. It's actually very fun to use as you play around with some subtle changes or outrageous ones. The technology is very sound as well, so it matches your face with excellent precision. 

Hairstyle for Your Face Shape

Next, you have a brilliant app if you've always struggled to find the right hairstyle for your face. As you should be aware, there are a few different face shapes. You can't do anything to change yours as you are born with it. But, it does mean that certain hairstyles won't fit your face. It can be annoying, but it's good to learn what styles suit you better than others. 

The Hairstyle for Your Face Shape app will do exactly what it says on the tin. Like the other two options, this one uses a photo to get to work. All you have to do is upload a suitable selfie with your full face in view. The app scans your face and recognizes its shape. From here, it provides you with some hairstyle suggestions based on the specific shape. You can test them out on your selfie, and it should help you find a hairstyle that doesn't look out of place on your face. Be warned, it won't provide any color options, so you only see the new styles in your natural hair color!

Hairstyle Makeover

This is another app that uses the selfie photo function. Once more, you have a similar variety of styles to pick and choose from. One great thing about this app is that you can tweak the style to fit your face more precisely. Sometimes, apps like these will set a hairstyle that can look a bit big or too obviously fake. With the Hairstyle Makeover, you can minimize or increase the size to fit your image. 

Also, and this is the main reason it's on the list, it has options for men. Not only can you choose different male hairstyles, but you also have facial hair options. If any men are looking for a new style, this could be the best app to try. 

Instagram/Snapchat

Lastly, we combine two apps into one position. I've done this because both apps work exactly the same way. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference as to which one you choose. Instagram and Snapchat have a lot of filters you can apply when taking photos or videos. You open your selfie camera, and it scans your face. From here, you can choose different filters to alter your face in a series of ways. If you search for hairstyles or hair colors, you will find loads of unique filters to see what you look like with different hair. 

Essentially, this lets you film yourself with different hairstyles or colors. The benefit of both apps is that you can move your head around to get a better look from other angles. The only drawback is that the selection of styles isn't as diverse as the other apps on this list. Also, most filters are made by random people. So, some will fit your face perfectly, while others can look a bit bizarre. Either way, if you have Instagram or Snapchat on your mobile device, it can help you pick a new hairstyle. 


Isn't it crazy what we can do with technology?! If you're considering a new hairstyle, don't take any risks! Download any of these apps to try out new styles and colors to find the perfect look for you.
