This app, which was created by a student, allows you to see what you would look like with a different hair style. In Hair Studio, you take a photo of yourself and apply a hairstyle, resizing the image to make it fit. If you like the look, you can use the list of hair salons near you, another feature of the app.

Tell us about your experience with Windows Phone.
Windows Phone App Development is Awesome!!! The SDK is very simple and useful for developers and especially for student developers to develop apps easily. To be frank, I was not getting high grades in college, but I love technology and always wanted to achieve something. Microsoft India’s “I unlock joy” competition just gave me the right opportunity for starting up my app development. I collected all the resources needed and started developing apps, and within a month I ended up having 5 apps in the Marketplace. App development gave a great confidence in me!!! Now I’m focused on developing quality apps for Windows 8.
Tell us about your experience with Windows Phone
I have been a huge fan of Windows Phone. My experience with Windows Phone has been really great. Windows Phone is a fast OS that’s easy to use and full of useful features. Developing for Windows Phone has pretty much been the same story. Windows Phone SDK is simply incredible, and all the resources online are great. I find the User Interface (UI) really fresh and inspiring and have even used some of its elements on my blog. I develop independently like many others, but I never feel really overwhelmed with what I’m doing.
