Play with Free Virtual Makeovers

This post may contain affiliate links. For more details, please view our full disclosure.

I’ve been playing with the idea of a dramatic haircut for a while now.  I wanted something that would be easier to do….quickly.  Because time is something that’s in short supply around here. But I didn’t have the courage to do it.

Then I read about all these fabulous sites that do free makeovers on Rhonda Writes.  At her recommendation, I tried TAAZ.  Best suggestion ever.  I tried on…pretty much every hair cut on the site.  There were a few I was leaning towards, and then I tried them on virtually and they looked horrible.  After trying them all on, I decided on one I wouldn’t have necessarily thought was the cutest, but it looked great on me.  At least virtually.

I took the picture in to my stylist, and she worked her magic.  Reality vs. virtual reality did not disappoint.  I’m so happy with the results.  Rhonda didn’t just recommend sites for hair.  She also has a great compilation of places to check out for make up and other beauty experiments that you might not be bold enough to try out in real life.  Check out her post.  It’s well worth the (lack of) money.

    This sound like such a fun concept. I’ve never tried a virtual makeover and it’s so cool that yours lead you to a style that you love! Thanks for sharing and wishing you all the best in the new year. xx – Monica

    That’s so cool! I’ve been in a bit of hair rut myself. I have to wear it shorter because now that I’m older my face is kind of longer and I have fine hair, so keeping it shorter makes my face look fuller and like I have thicker hair. But it’s been the same style forever. It’s hard because I need it long enough to wear in a ponytail for working out, but have no idea what else to do with it. I’ll have to try that site because I’m considering getting bangs again.

      I have such thin hair, too. But when it’s long the ends all frizz out and I look like Hagrid. So it’s nice to have it shorter when I can’t commit the time to it everyday. :p

    That’s cool! I haven’t had a major haircut change in several years, mostly I’ve just been colouring and keeping the cut sharp. I would try this out the next time I felt like changing my look.

    I have so much love for this post. That bob from the link a bit upthread is absolutely darling. I am a styling klutz and my hair is so BORING right now because I’m such a lazy arse—and tired of pinning aside unruly wispies and trying to master the sock bun technique. This gives me a whole slew of fresh inspiration!

      Thank ya! I think we’re in the same boat as far as styling goes. If I had about three more hours in the day that I were forced to dedicate entirely to my looks I think I may be able to deal with the long hair right now. But it just wasn’t working. Hope this helps!
