YouCam Makeup: Best App For Ombre & Multi-Color Hair Filters

Best hair color apps in 2024: YouCam Makeup

The YouCam Makeup app is available for Android and iOS, and definitely one of the best hair color apps out there. This also shows in the app's store ratings: with 4.8 stars in the Apple store and 4.4 stars in the Google Play store, it is the best-rated app in our test.

With this app, you can try on hair colors in live-camera mode and choose from 150+ hair colors as well as 3 hair dye styles: 1 color, multi-color and ombre.

On the side of the screen, you'll find two slider bars that help you adjust the intensity of the color and the shine. If you tap the Before-After icon at the top right corner, you can easily see the difference between the filter and your real hair color.

Alternatively, you can also try hair color filters on your photos. The benefit here is that, while the hair color will also automatically get applied to your hair, you can manually add or erase the color from any area. Moreover, you can use the color picker tool that lets you choose any color from the color scale or directly from your photo.

  • 150+ preset hair color filters
  • color scale + color picker from image
  • multi-color and ombre styles
  • manual adjustment options
Conscons

Conclusion

This app offers many great hair color options and the results really look amazing. Our favorite part of the app are the ombre and multi-color filters, as well as its rather unique color scale tool that basically gives you the option to choose any hair color you can imagine.


Color Analysis - Dressika: Best App For Hair Color Analysis

Best hair color apps in 2024: Color Analysis

Here's another really cool app: Color Analysis - Dressika, available for Android and iPhone.

This app tells you which colors suit you best based on your photo or your answers to a few questions. It shows your personal color code and the clothes colors, makeup and hair colors that suit you best.

The app offers 180 hair colors and a slider to adjust the intensity. Colors that suit you best are marked with a little flame icon.

It was fun to learn about our color codes! The hair color application works well and the recommended colors really looked good on our photos. If you are looking for a live-camera try-on, try YouCam Makeup or Hair Color Booth instead.

Style My Hair: Best App For Subtle Hair Color Filters

Best hair color apps in 2024: Style My Hair

The Style My Hair app is available for iOS and Android. You can use the app to create your own hair profile and get recommendations based on your hair type, your current color and the new color you want to try.

To try hair color filters you need to tap "Try A Look On Me" at the bottom of the screen. Then you can tap "Smoky" for a multi-color try-on or "Shades" for 70+ single colors try-on, either on your photo or live camera.

  • auto hair detection
Conscons
  • app navigation is not intuitive
  • hair color filters work best on light hair

Conclusion

Similar to reviews from users, we found that this app is quite hard to navigate and often bugging. While we found the hair color preview to be quite realistic, some users are unhappy with seeing only subtle changes to their natural hair color when applying the app's filters. 

Hair Color Changer: Best App For Manual Hair Color Filters

Best hair color apps in 2024: Hair Color Changer

The Hair Color Changer app, available for Android, is super simple. Upload your photo or take a new photo with the app and then add one of its 16 hair colors to your photo. The number of filters is quite limited and you need to add the hair colors manually, but this app is also completely free of any advertisements and all the hair colors are available for free.

  • free to use
  • no ads
Conscons
  • limited hair color options compared to other apps
  • no auto-detection, hair color filters need to be applied manually

Conclusion

We were skeptical when we found that we have to apply the hair colors manually but it worked surprisingly well. With the "Draw" and "Eraser" tools we could add the colors very quickly and precisely, so the results look just as good as in any other app. If you are looking for more convenience, try an app that offers auto hair detection (e.g. YouCam Makeup).

Hair Color Booth: Best App For Bright Hair Color Filters

The Hair Color Booth app is available for iOS only. It offers 45+ hair colors that you can try in video or photo mode. You can further adjust the hair color filters' intensity and add a skin smoothing filter to your face.

Conclusion

This app is nice for testing bright hair colors. Even though applying the hair color filters is not the most precise, you'll get an idea of what the color will look like on you. If you are looking for an app that applies hair color filters more precisely, try YouCam Makeup
