There's No Need to Fear Change

Thanks to the Virtual Makeover app there is no need to fear change because nothing is permanent. Here's a chance to try on more than 2,000 different hairstyles and items all of which are realistic-looking. Making those drastic changes in real life can end up being something you really regret and can take a lot of time to either grow out or fix. Why not try them out in a virtual way first and get some great ideas within just minutes? The way the app works is that you'll be able to use a photo of yourself from Facebook, your album, or you can take one with your device. You can then start trying on the different items and hairstyles. If you'd rather you can use one of the pre-loaded models but then you won't get a personalized look obviously.
