New Look, No Regrets: Perfect365 Now Lets You Play With Your Hair

Should I get bangs? Would I look better as a blonde? Could I pull off a bob? Don’t fret; Perfect365 can help you answer without any regrets.

ArcSoft, the global leader of image-intelligent technologies, today announced that its award-winning digital photo makeover app, Perfect365, now lets users experiment with and add new hairstyles to any photo – for free. The app has already helped nearly 20 million people look their best, and its newest feature, Hair, lets them take their look to the next level with more than 100 hairstyle options.

“Imagine the possibilities of new looks and styles if you didn’t have to worry about the long-term effects of a cut and color,” said Caroline Tien-Spalding, director of product marketing at ArcSoft. “Millions of people all over the world are already having fun touching up their photos and experimenting with new looks thanks to Perfect365. Now that we’ve added hairstyles into the mix, I can’t wait to see how much more fun they’ll have with their digital personas.”

Perfect365’s new Hair feature lets people choose from 11 different styles and 10 different colors – from bobs to bangs and everything in between. The app is free to download, and already lets people easily apply a natural touchup or a complete makeover on their digital photo – with just a few taps. Hair styling, makeup application, complexion touchup, and face contouring are just a few of the remarkable yet easy to use features. Within seconds, users can create studio quality images to post on social media and professional networking sites, or share with family and friends.

How it works

A user simply snaps a “selfie” or uploads a photo from their camera roll and ArcSoft's industry-leading facial feature detection technology does the rest, automatically locating a person’s eyes, nose, cheeks, mouth and hairline. This allows people to play with their look by doing things like: instantly changing eye color or the shape of their face, removing blemishes and under-eye circles, softening skin and whitening teeth, and even fixing a bad hair day. The end result is a professionally re-touched photo in just one tap.

The app is powered by the facial detection technology ArcSoft has been developing for almost 20 years – the very same science that companies like Samsung and Nikon use to offer advanced imaging in their devices.

A premium desktop version is also available for Mac and Windows users. The new Hair feature is currently available on Google Play for Android phone users. The iPhone version will be available soon.
