New hairstyles on the virtual you
I've been known to be a bit obsessive about hair in the past. I even devoted a whole issue of my webzine to hair. That perfect hairstyle and cut is still elusive but I don't obsess about it as much anymore. I'm usually sporting the easy maintenance ponytail look these days - I just don't have the time to bother. But I still had fun on Stellure, a website where you can try on different hairstyles and colors on the virtual you. Submit some photos, give 'em some cash, and your head turns into a rotating 3D version of you. It's sort of like being able to virtually try on hundreds of wigs so you can check it out before you make a hair commitment.
If you don't want to fork over your cash, you could still take the free quiz that determines your face shape and the ethnic features that you most resemble to stand in for the real you. Even with the limited style and color options in this free trial version, it's weirdly fascinating and creepy at the same time.
