Still in beta

As someone who already has facial hair and is looking to change styles, there is no option to work with a bare face. If you use the camera to take a picture, it cannot remove existing facial hair.

Thankfully, it lets you upload an old picture from your phone. Unfortunately it enforces a static aspect ratio and squeezes all my pictures to be too long vertically. I’ve played with cropping pictures and it still does it. No options for me to get a bare face in the app, so it’s unusable except to look at pictures of models. I can already do that with Google.

Also the ads are too repetitive and annoying.

How do they not preview black hair?

I like the concept of having an app that can be used to show what a beard would look like on a person. Kudos for making an app like this.

That being said, there is one question that i cannot help but ask: why does this app not preview black beard hair?

They preview brown hair, red hair, blonde hair, etc, but not black beard hair. It’s bizarre, because virtually 100% of black people have black hair, as well as a large chunk of white people and i’m willing to bet a pretty large chunk (if not all) asian people do too. Yet the app makers didn’t include previewing black facial hair.
I feel ridiculous previewing my beard with brown facial hair.

Developer Response ,

Hi there. We appreciate the enthusiasm about the app! Good to hear you’re enjoying it. We can imagine you would like to keep the image of yourself as realistic as possible. Luckily, there is a way to show black beard hair. The app shows you 4 different colors in the beard color palette. Pick the top left one and slide the intensity slider all the way to the left. That should do it! If this is not black enough, please let us know, so we can take this into account for future color developments. Have a great day!

Needs more textures

Saw a previous review that attempted to speak to this with a response from the developer that also missed the mark (and somewhat snide at that). The issue with this app isn’t the colors available, it’s the texture. There are plenty of men that the lone texture used would not fit (i.e, anyone non-white). Kind of untenable in the year 2020.
