Question Change hair color

Hello,

I am trying to change color of hair - but I can’t! Any ideas how to make blond hair a deep red? All my survey fail on a copperred- color.

Not sure exactly what you want but here goes (using Photoshop CS2)...

1. Select her hair using the method you are most comfortable with (I used quick-mask and then saved the selection).

2. With hair selection active (and not in quick mask mode) I went to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation.

3. Click OK. In next window, click the box to select colorize. Play around with the sliders until you have the color you want. Click ok when done.

4. To make the hair a bit more natural you can then dodge and burn some highlights back into the hair.

Here's my example, please forgive the sloppiness, I did it using my laptop's touchpad.

hey stopa, here's my attempt.

1. hue/saturation level (check colorise)
2. set level to multiply
3. add mask and brush in the hair
4. adjust hue/saturation level to match color your looking for

This is really scruffy cos I'm at work and I only have GIMP here but the principles are the same.
I selected the colour sample you provided, created a new layer and set the blend more to colour and painted over the hair
Being blonde, it was a little bright so I duplicated the original and set the blend mode to multiply, then masked out everything but the hair.
If its too bright still, repeat the multiply step - if its too dark, adjust opacity of multiply layer.

hair color can allway be adjusted to desired color by replacing the color again...

Tahnx for all sugestions. I think that I will use Nancy'sJ and Miguel path. My biggest problem was blond color of her hair- and YES the answer (for me) is MULTIPLY!!!
Thank you NancyJ
Miguel!

Smile Red

Ok... this is mine. I think i's very important for the hair to look realistic, not just colorized.

Let me know if you wanna hear the steps.

Hi Stopa.

I made a gradient from the supplied colours and applied a gradient map to the hair and then changed the blending mode to Multiply. (but color and overlay look fine as well)

Hope this helps.

Ken.
