A hair simulator is a virtual hairstyle generator that lets you see what different hairstyles would look like on a person's face shape. Users can also alter the hair color if they would like to see what a new shade will look like with their skin tone.
Hairstyle simulators can be found online or as applications that can be downloaded to a smartphone. Most simulators allow the use of a picture that users take of their face with their hair pulled back. These simulators also provide the option of choosing a model whose facial features most closely resemble their own. An added perk to using a hairstyle simulator is the ability to do a full face makeover with the use of virtual makeup application.
