Q. Can I set an AUTOMATIC HAIR COLOR for all hairstyles to appear in as I try them on?
A. Yes, plus the Catalog itself! Click the "Hair Color" icon in the left control panel to access the color chart (see images at left) and use this time-saving feature, which will also display the entire Catalog Gallery in your selected hue on a model of your choice (you can have those Emo styles come up purple as soon as you click them).

Q. Is it possible to SAVE a finished image for retrieval later?
A. Just select "Save to Favs" on the lower left panel. Favorites can be viewed (click the icon on the left panel), added or deleted in seconds, and you can print, or share your images three different ways.

Reverting to original color for the style you're trying on will also show the original colors of the styles in the gallery. Mouseover any gallery thumbnail to reveal the original photo plus information.
Q. What type PHOTO OF MYSELF
should I use, and how do I upload my picture
to my private gallery?
A. Use a head-and-shoulders photo, looking directly at the camera, with your hair pulled back from your face, and ears uncovered -- this way you can try on any type of hairstyle! Make sure your snapshot is focused, clear and well-lit. A plain white background works best. To upload:
Log onto your account and click the "Add Photo" icon in the left panel (jpg format, at least 200 x 250 pixels, and less than 1 Mb). The Hairstyle Changer includes a photo editor
to optimize your picture; the adjustment controls at the bottom lets you fine-tune the positioning if needed.
Q. In the Makeup Palettes,
how do I get the LIPSTICK and EYE MAKEUP
to fit perfectly on my photo?
A. Click the "Align" tab on the Makeup panel and use the tracing tools
(see image at left). Tracing is not needed for the Blush
Q. Can I upload MORE THAN ONE VERSION of my photo?
A. Yes! As a member you can upload as many snapshots of yourself as you like, and switch back and forth (i.e., with or without glasses and jewelry, different facial expressions, etc.)
Q. I'm a guy. How do I see hairstyles for MEN?
A. Click "Change Models," pick "Male," or upload your own picture. Then click the "Hairstyles" icon, choose "Men's Hairstyles,"
then click "Continue," and pick the textures and lengths you want, click "Show Results" (or use the "Try On" icon in the hairstyles information area, outside the Changer).

For guys, too! There's also options for updo and formal -- the Wizard even matches styles to the formal dress you'll be wearing (spaghetti straps? lace? asymmetrical?...). The Changer can alter the suggestions any way you like!
