I’ve always been a fan of Toca Boca apps mainly because my children genuinely really enjoy playing them. My oldest son loved them when he was younger and my youngest daughter now enjoys playing them nightly. She has a whole collection of Toca apps on her iPad and I honestly think those are the ones she plays the most. She’s a huge fan of the Hair Salon series of games so when I saw that they had a Hair Salon Me game that allowed her to use real faces, I just had to download it for her. That’s right, Toca Hair Salon Me allows you to take a photo of your face and use it as a character in the hair salon.
Toca Hair Salon Me plays almost exactly like the previous Hair Salon games. Kids can cut hair, grow hair, color hair, and style hair. They can do pretty much anything you can do in a real hair salon, even wash and blow dry hair. The difference here is that this game lets them snap a photo of themselves or others to use as an in game character. There are no random characters to choose from.
Adding your own face is pretty simple. Just snap a photo of yourself or whoever and then follow the onscreen prompts to size it correctly. What’s neat here is that the finished face isn’t static. They are alive and move. The eyes blink, the mouth moves. Your unique character even makes noise. It’s actually quite good.
When you’re done creating the perfect hairstyle, you can accessories yourself with glasses, mustaches, and even hats. When you’re satisfied with what you’ve made, you can then save your creation to your camera roll and share them with others.
Toca Hair Salon Me is a very fun app. The original ones were good, but I think this one is even better as they can basically just snap a photo of anyone and then use them as their hairstyle models. I really like this game mainly because my daughter has been playing it for the past few days almost nonstop and thinks it’s the funniest thing being able to style all our hairs.
