Best Hairstyle Apps for Moms


  • Post Image


    There is nothing quite like a new hairstyle to give an active Mom a needed pick-me-up.  But, making a change can be intimidating.  This is especially true if you are considering a new color or shorter cut.  Using an App to try out new looks before you commit is a great way to avoid a mishap, and to encourage you to make a change for the better. 

    With this in mind, I set out to find a great hairstyling App.  After much research, I found that free Apps are so limited in features and styles they really aren’t worth your time.  Have no fear, I discovered options that are worth the pocket change.

    The best app for my money is Hairstyle.  Here's what I love about it:


    • Allows you to use an existing photo (including facebook photos) or take a new photo with your phone.
    • Consistent formatting to all styles to ensure they “fit” your photo.
    • Automatically places your photo in all of the available styles in a list format for quick perusing.
    • Wide range of color selections that can be applied to any style.
    • Good selection of short, medium and long styles (also offer men’s styles).

    The result is a pretty realistic image of you with your new style and color.  Once you find the styles you like, you can easily save and share your photos.  Just bring your phone along to your appointment! The App would be even better with a few more styles options.  However, I found a decent variety of current styles that gave me a clear idea of the right general color and cut.  Definitely worth $1.99! iTunes® reviews - 4 out of 5 stars.
