changing hair color to specific colors

Recommended Posts

Hi! I like to do mashups of people/characters for my profile pictures, but this one is really hard!



My biggest trouble is with the part where the 'fake' colored hair pops in, but I also have trouble with getting the colors right.

Right now i've just been messing a lot with separate layers with different parts of the hair, which created a gorgeous purple-violet, but also didn't quite work as well with the black.


I don't use plugins, so if you have a tactic that you use would be awesome.

I'd be willing to try a plugin if suggested tho.

Hello @Flippo and welcome to the forum :)


You could try using the layer modes.  i.e. make a new layer, select the area you'd like to change, add a color and change the mode.  I used Glow in this example:
