Create Person Accounts from Contact Lookups

Person Accounts

If you have a contact lookup on a page layout you can search for person accounts (as they are contacts as well). However, if you click "New" and create a new contact it is created as a standard contact and you don't have an option for it to be a person account. 

If person accounts are enabled then sometimes standard contacts are never used.

Workaround: create a process builder and flow to create a new account and convert the contact to a person account. It's very messy
