Who would’ve thought that one day we’d be changing our hairdos as much as we change our minds – in a matter of minutes even. Definitely not me!

Well it’s here and it’s happening: technology has made it possible with a string of hugely addictive virtual makeover apps. We tried the Dark and Lovely app on for size. Why we heart this one: protective styles are included alongside the sleek looks! From straight tresses to bantu knots and a variety of funky colours, you can have it all.
