I keep stumbling upon these great finds to help women make better choices about clothing, makeup and hair. This is great! And what is an image consultant to do but keep sharing these little nuggets. The latest ‘find’ is a virtual hair makeover that InStyle magazine has introduced called "Hollywood Hair Virtual Makeovers." Essentially, the site allows women to try on the latest celebrity styles to see how they would look . You can try different hair colors, lengths, styles or textures from Jessica Simpson’s platinum blonde locks, Scarlett Johansson’s sexy updo to Beyonce’s sandy curly waves. How cool is that? All you need to do is upload your own headshot or choose a model’s with a similar complexion and face shape to get started.

OK so I gave it a try. It’s not perfect, because I could not get rid of my own hairdo, but these are some of the looks I tried: Kate Hudon, Halle B, Mischa Barton, Jessica Beil and Beyonce. I changed my haircolor to brown and added highlights. My favorite was surprisngly Kate Hudson’s flippy soft curls. Who knew? I tried to copy the images but InStyle is very smart so I could not get it to work. But I can forward them via e-mail which of course is useless in this forum. You just have to trust me that I make a great brown Kate Hudson.
Go ahead and give it a try. It’s a risk free way to experiment with color, styles and texture. And if I ever got extensions, I know who my hair heroine is.
