       I think it's a great idea, but for it to be a success you'd have to be asked to present some information about your hair quality (or lack thereof...) together with the photograph. The stylist can't see how thick, naturally curly etc. the hair is just from a frontal photo, and not all styles fit all hair types.

       How do you take a frontal shot of your entire head? The back of your head would be on the oppostie side from the camera, wouldn't it?
