An app that changes hair color can be useful both to have fun and prank your friends and to help you decide which shade to dye. These apps let you try out a new look before heading to the salon, often realistically. Thus, there is less risk of regret later.

1. Hair Color

Hair Color offers different coloring styles such as ombré, sombre, grown out or all over hair. When opening the app, the user is faced with the image from the camera, but it is also possible to use a photo from the cell phone. Just select the colors at the bottom of the screen.



There are bold options, such as different shades of green, purple, blue, and the most common ones, such as blonde, brunette and red. The app also allows you to split the screen to compare visuals in real time. Although not intuitive, just tap the screen to take a photo or tap and hold to record video.
