Our Photo Policy Explained

Last updated: 25th March 2013

What's the Difference Between Galleries and Timelines?

Timelines are a place where you can document your hair progressions, keep notes on your previous styles and colours and view everyone else's style through the months and years.

Since timelines are for everyone, we're not as strict about what type of photos you can upload but we do still have some stipulations which you can read below.


The Galleries are for the best-of-the-best. Our moderators hand-pick the best photos from all images uploaded for the galleries. Since we have tens of thousands of photos uploaded each year, we showcase just the best few in the gallery.

Why are Photos Sometimes Removed?


Each and every photo uploaded is checked by one of our moderators. While we have fewer restrictions on timeline images than gallery photos, we do still perform some checks for quality control and to prevent copyright infringement:

Please understand that every photo uploaded effectively costs us money so if your photo is not contributing to the site in some way we will remove it.

How does a Photo get Selected for the Gallery?


We hand pick the best photos uploaded to the site and add them to our galleries. Not only are the gallery photos images of great hair, they're also great quality images.
