Anyone who has considered a makeover, a new hairstyle or other beauty accessory knows that the two biggest challenges revolve around cost and choice.

Fortunately, there are several applications that can aid users in both decision-making and cost savings; in the following article we will discuss four of these applications and what each has to offer.
