Professional Hair Processing in Photoshop

Here I’ll show you how to make professional processing of hair in Photoshop, add different shades and bring some shine to the hair.

Ok, in the beginning you should find appropriate picture of woman with a long hair to work with. You can find the picture on Google Images or feel free to use mine. Open up the picture and begin making this tutorial with me.

The first thing that you should make to bring some shine to the hair. Select the Dodge Tool (Brush: 100px, Range: Highlights, Exposure: 30%) and brightened some parts, as shown below:

After that select the Sharpen Tool to add a bit of sharpness in some places.

Ok, move to the next step. Now, proceed to the coloring of hair. I prefer to create multiple strands and make them different colors. For this effect use the Polygonal Lasso Tool to create selection as on my picture below and fill selected area with color of #ef8008 on the new layer.
