Funny sounds, neat animation, neat graphics, really addictive, one-finger controls
If you hate fun, this game sucks
Toca Hair Salon Me for Android is just good clean fun. I wasn't sure about this one at first, but I have to admit, we had a lot of laughs playing with this one. Clearly this was designed for kids, but I think adults will enjoy this one just as much.
Toca Hair Salon Me is a virtual hair salon for your Android gizmo. Just add a photo of yourself from your own gallery or take a new selfie to play with. Try to pick one where you can clearly see your face from the front. I chose my App4Smart profile picture. Once you have the photo, the app helps you position it in place. You then adjust the eyes and mouth, centering them over your own in the picture; that way, your virtual self can blink and make silly noises and his eyes and mouth work in unison with the sounds and effects. From there, things get pretty hilarious, right quick.
Your newly put together virtual self is sitting in a chair waiting to get your hair done. In front of you are various styling tools; comb, lotions, razors, scissors and all that good stuff. Just use any of the styling tools to comb, shave and cut your hair to your liking. Once you’re happy with the look, go to the next screen.
*Tip* The lotion makes your hair grow, so have fun shaving it off then growing it back, right before your eyes!
The next station is the styling station. Flat irons, curling irons and more are all waiting to be used to your liking. The effects are very funny; steam comes out when you use a curling iron, and your face contorts comically when you blow dry. Proceed through all the styling stations until you’re happy with your new look.
The graphics are hilarious and the sounds add to the fun. Kids will absolutely love this, especially working on every single family member into some comical hairdo. All the finished styles can be saved and shared. I experienced no glitches to speak of.
Toca Hair Salon Me surprised me with how much fun it was. I really enjoyed this one and we laughed really hard at our silly creations. This one is worth the money for the laughs alone. Excellent.
