I tried on Kate Winslet's hair at taaz.com.
Don’t make me rip up my proud-natural-brunette card, but questions about blondes OR redheads having more fun sometimes plague me. Maybe it would be nice to change up my appearance with auburn or golden strands.
Celebrities like Katy Perry and Emma Stone look adorable with their adopted hair hues. Of course, they also spend thousands of dollars on products and stylists to keep their hair from becoming chemically damaged. Plus, I’m just too frightened of looking freaky and/or fake ala Lindsay Lohan to actually experiment at a salon. So I use the virtual makeover website TAAZ to indulge in new hair color and styles, scare free.
At TAAZ, you can experiment with teeth whitening, color contacts, lipsticks, among other beauty options that you might be intimidated to try in person. After creating your own account, you simply upload a well-lit photo of yourself, smiling, with your hair back. After you upload the photo, TAAZ is able to scan your face and will then ask you to click around certain facial features, such as the shape of your face or your eyes. At that point, you should be able to try a variety of different looks under the makeover tab.
Here is another hairstyle I tried at TAAZ. Let me know what you think:
I also tried Stephanie Pratt's hair from MTV's "The Hills."
Some of my other favorite beauty websites
Do you hate wasting your money on a beauty product that fails to deliver on its promise of fuller lips, longer lashes, etc.? Me too! MakeupAlley is great for finding product reviews that can help you out before you buy. Sometimes you can find over a thousand reviews for one product. MakeupAlley is also not owned by a beauty brand so you know you’re getting the real scoop. You can search products by most popular, best value, newest, newest reviews, or top reviewers. Talk about help!
