Make an Appointment, Toca Hair Salon 3 is Open!
- Carl Frisell
On December 8 Toca Boca is once again opening the salon doors to kids around the world with Toca Hair Salon 3.
When Toca Hair Salon came out in 2011 it was the only gender neutral hair app for kids on the market, completely reimagining what it means to play with hair. The Toca Hair Salon series became an instant success. With almost 40 million downloads to date kids around the world have enjoyed styling hair on the likes of funny characters, pet dogs, Santa Claus and even pictures of themselves. Now, five years later, Toca Boca is doing it again! Bursting with content Toca Hair Salon 3 is the most diverse Hair Salon app yet. Not only is it gender neutral — kids can now grow beards on anyone — but it also introduces all new hair types including kinky hair. Toca Hair Salon 3 lets even more kids see representations of themselves and their friends as they get creative and be silly with hair.
As with all of the Hair Salon apps, the highlight is of course the hair — it truly is a joy to play with. The app offers dozens of characters for kids to choose from, each with a randomized style and personality, creating endless play opportunities. The straight hair is silky smooth and flows under your fingers as you move it. The curly hair is bouncy and full of volume. Kids will have fun experimenting with the different hair types, seeing how they react to the tools and what styles they can make — braids, fluffy ‘fros or buzzcuts. After doing their hair kids can move to the extensive accessories station to choose funny, cool and cute outfits to go with the look of the day.
“With this new version of Toca Hair Salon we wanted to take the next step with the hair and enhance the experience for kids. There are more hair strands, more hair types, longer hair and beards for everyone,” said Emil Ovemar, Co-Founder and Executive Producer, Toca Boca. “Combine all that new hair with the fact that, after countless requests from fans,kids can now change the clothes and accessories of all characters we think this is our best hair salon yet.”
App features include:
- All-new characters with dozens of starter styles and millions of possible styling options
- Straight, wavy, curly and now kinky hair
- All the tools needed to get creative, including a new braiding tool
- Every character can grow a beard to style
- More advanced hair color tool: Dip-dye and fade hair in many colors
