How to Style Women’s Hair Using Photoshop

On this video tutorial Aaron Nace from Phlearn demonstrates how to arrange, fix and style Women’s hair with Adobe Photoshop.

First, start by figuring out a game plan for our image – check which parts of the hair you would like to change and how. Next use the liquify tool (here is a general tutorial on using this tool by Nace) to push and pull parts of the hair to get the look that you want. Start with a very large brush to work on large parts of the hair and later move to smaller brush to fix tiny hair strands.

Next you are going to fill some blanks using the clone stamp tool (create a new layer and choose current and below). Nace has an interesting method where he clone into a different area and than move this area to the place where he wants to add some hair and blend it (he also flips the hair he cloned). You can use a black layer mask to only add what you want – this way you can fill in blank parts that you don’t want in your shot.
