Tried to strike a balance between natural and realistic.

Cleaned up the noisy skin. Added contrast to the hair and image overall. Reshaped the right shoulder for balance. Changed the hair color with a layer set to color blend mode and then painted with the sampled color. Changed the lip color with a Hue/Saturation layer to match to the new hair color. Added shadow/highlight contouring on a 50% gray layer set to overlay blend mode.

Converted to cmyk mode, quick mask of hair applied to curves adjustment layer, played with curves till I got close to your chip colour.
I used to have my hair that colour afew months ago... hmmm, I think I might go dye purple for a change...

Thx KR1156, I am a stickler for detail especially if it is something so simple as to soft brush a part line on the mask, and not to mention recent experience colourizing a photo of a woman with cornrow braids hehe.
