A Hyper-Realistic Virtual Beard Try-On

The advanced virtual try-on solution uses a combination of smart technologies that help users visualize different beard styles on their faces with incredible accuracy. The powerful blend of technologies at play includes:

Users can instantly discover a collection of virtual beard styles through true-to-life try-on in the YouCam Makeup app.

The interactive virtual beard style try-on features 15 different facial hair styles that can be tried-on in selfie photo mode, allowing app users to experiment with beard styles in a whole new way.  Advanced feature tools, including the convenient beard eraser tool, allows users to adjust and customize their beard to better fit their personal style. Similarly, the compare feature tool gives users a chance to compare their before and after facial hair styles, with side-by-side comparison.
