Color correct this photo and add a beard

How can I color correct this photo and add a beard back on the male. I tried to use the clone for the beard and it didn't look real.

Re: Color correct this photo and add a beard

With regard to the Beard, I overlaid a copy of the original photo, approximated it's levels to be similar with the retouch and then using a black mask at approx 70% started painting the beard back in. In areas where there was damage or no discernable beard, I used clone on a new layer.

Other than that just did a levels adjustment to bring back a little of the black.

Nice job on the retouch so far.

Cassidy, I tried to follow what you had said but honestly I couldn't decipher what you were trying to say. To me it seems very complicated to follow. For example,(With regard to the Beard, I overlaid a copy of the original photo, approximated it's level to be similar with the retouch) I appredciate your help but just could not follow it logically. Thanks again.
