Toca Boca had earlier released a series of hair salon apps to great success. They were easy to master and provided quick laughs for the players. Now with Toca Hair Salon Me as the latest addition to the family, it has proven again that the developers do not disappoint.
Much like the previous apps in the series, Toca Hair Salon Me allows for users to give entire makeovers by spicing up hairdos infused with their own creativity. Outlandish hairstyles that would never see the light of day in real life could be executed here, an example being a bright pink Mohawk.
But the largest drawing point of Toca Hair Salon Me would be the ability to import pictures to use as a stencil. Users upload the faces of their loved ones onto the app console and can then proceed to give their people an exciting haircut. This has amazing potential for causing laughing gags at gatherings and whatnot.
Toca Hair Salon Me is something I would use to bring out the life in a gathering. It was definitely the subject of fun and laughter when I brought it out at my most recent get-together.
Priced at $2.99, Toca Hair Salon Me is a little expensive for the type of app it is. But if you’re the type of person who simply enjoys playing practical jokes on friends for a cheap laugh then I’d say this is one app you should have.
Would I Buy Again:Yes
Who Is It For:Gatherings and bonding moments
What I Like:It's amusing to play such jokes on people
What I Don't Like:There's a limit to how much you can actually do
Final Statement:I now understand the power of a hairdresser
