Need help in improving this image

Hi,

My colleague recently lost her grandma. She asked me if I could do anything with the image she had. The image size she provided was 7 kb. I have changed image size to 8x10 and did whatever I could to remove pixelation.

I usually use Photoshop for enhancing my landscape photography and not very conversant with portrait retouching. Any suggestions you can provide to improve image further would be greatly appreciated. Could I use some kind of brush to add details to the hair?

Thanks in advance.

Well Nagel has some great hair brushes for use with photoshop. It takes a little practice to get the hang of them but take a look at:
