Website Review: HairMixer.com

January 23, 2008 by Rebekah

The virtual makeover has come a long way since I bought a Cosmopolitan-branded CD-ROM for Windows 95 and scanned in a tragically low-res photo to “make over.” InStyle’s (free) hair makeover application – which allows you to experiment with several cuts, colors, and highlight options – exemplifies the new generation of virtual beauty possibilities. The InStyle program’s less-serious cousin, HairMixer.com, gets our (and Gawker’s) kudos for humor – a solid way to whittle away some internet time – when you're not searching SheFinds for great deals, of course. But to really try out a new ’do, stick with the more thorough InStyle application.

Here’s how HairMixer works: upload your own photo, search the internet, or use one of the over 100 celebrity pics on the site. Then swap the hair from one headshot (i.e., Oprah’s) onto the face from another (i.e., yours). The sizing mechanisms are imprecise though, which led to Katie Holmes’ ears awkwardly situated on the outer edges of my face.

But try Anderson Cooper with Penelope Cruz's locks and vice versa. Definitely worth the 32 seconds of clicking.

Check out some other absurd hair topics on SheFinds.
