D. Using a model photo
You can use a photo of yourself to try out hairstyles, but you can also use a model photo. Model photos are handy for when you want to get to know the app before using your own photo. If you're very lucky, one of the models may even resemble you!

E. Using a photo of yourself
You can use a photo of yourself to try out hairstyles.
Important: To safeguard your privacy, a photo stored on your device is used. This photo is only used temporarily and is not uploaded to a location outside your device. This means that you will need to select your photo again after leaving or refreshing the webpage. The app does not store your photo.
For optimal results, use a photo that meets the following specifications:
• A portrait orientation photo. Thus, a photo taken with the camera held vertically.
• The ideal aspect ratio is 1:1.2, meaning that the height is 1.2 times the width.
• Ensure that the background is solid/plain and take your photo in a well-lit environment.
• A photo of your head and shoulders only.
• Provide ample space above your head. This can be useful when you're trying updo hairstyles, hairstyles with spikes, ...
• Look directly into the camera and do not tilt your head.
• Make sure your hair is completely away from your face and ears.
• A photo in jpg or png format and a maximum size of 10MB. Photos from most smartphones work perfectly.
