Works on: iPhone and iPad
For: Kids who have a flair for hair
If you’re a parent with an iOS device, there’s a good chance that you’ve already heard of Toca Boca, and/or have a few (or all) of its awesome apps on your phones and tablets. The ingenuity of its digital toys, the graphics, and the lack of in-app purchases or advertising (yay!) are just a few reasons why Toca Boca apps are my favorites.
Toca Hair Salon, the company’s best-selling app, just came out with another version that will delight children even more. Toca Hair Salon 2 features four brand new characters, new hairstyles, accessories, and what’s even more exciting - waves, curls and kinks! Yes, in addition to the usual tools for shaping hair like shears, buzzers, shampoo and hair color, Toca Hair Salon 2 now offers a curling irons, crimper, straightener and razor as additional hair coiffing tools.
The animation is really smooth, which is the standard among all Toca Boca apps, but the hair flows a little more realistically in this version and is very easy for kids to style into whatever beautiful hair creation they want.

(Full disclosure: These apps were developed by Toca Boca, a division of our parent company Bonnier in Sweden.)
