Toca Hair Salon 3 Review | iOS

tocahair3_iconYou can pretty much always count on Toca Boca to make a great kids game and their latest entry in the Toca Hair Salon series doesn’t disappoint. Toca Hair Salon 3 continues the series with new characters, new hair styles, and a first for the series – the ability to change clothes and accessories.

So the neat thing here with Toca Hair Salon 3 is the inclusion of randomly designed characters. Each time you start the app, 4 brand new looking characters appear for you to choose. These will be different each time you start. If you don’t like any of these characters, you can easily hit the refresh button at the top right corner and four new characters will be randomly generated. Once you find one you like, just tap on them to get started.

This new game has a whole host of things your kids can do now. Of course they can cut and style hair like before but the game also includes other “salon” experiences. Hair can be washed and dried, colored, and curled and straightened. You can even style and trim facial hair as well. All the tools are very easy to use and intuitive enough for younger players to figure out.

What’s really new this time around is that there is a new section to change the clothing each character is wearing as well as adding accessories to them like hats, bows, and other odds and ends. Once your character is all styled and dressed, you can take photos of them and save them to your gallery.

Toca Hair Salon has always been a great series and the latest is no different. My daughter had an absolute blast playing this title and it’s one of those games she doesn’t get tired of. The fact that the characters now are all randomized gives the game much more replay value and the absurd amount of styling tools makes Toca Hair salon 3 the best one yet in the series.
