With TikTok avatars, you will be able to express your individuality by choosing from a wide array of hairstyles, accessories, piercings, and makeup, to create your own unique avatar, based on your style and personality.

In order to get started, you will need to open the effects section on TikTok and look for the avatar effect. From there, you can customize your personal Avatar that will fit your preferences. When your avatar is ready, you will be able to start recording videos. The avatar will replace your face and it will react based on your gestures and moves.

TikTok is working with their Creator DiversityCollective to make this the most inclusive and representative experience for the community. With this feature, people will be able to express their creativity and come up with new ways to make use of TikTok Avatars resulting in expanding the ways people connect and create across TikTok’s global community.
