Madonna before we Aveda-erized her.

This month Aveda launched the grown up digital version of paper dolls. Instead of taking your little paper person and carefully folding clothes over it, you can upload a pic of yourself and play for hours on end trying on new hairstyles from the comfort of your couch. Designed as both a free iPad app and available from the computer the My Aveda Makeover program lets you play with a variety of hairstyles and then customize colors, highlights and lowlights.

To take it for a test drive we took the ever-changing Madonna and gave it a go with a few different styles the icon has yet to try. Once you nail down a look you love for yourself (or a friend/family member/poodle), pop into any of Portland’s Aveda locations to make the mock up a reality. You can also show your grandmother a picture of what she would look like with a purple bob which is reason enough to indulge.
