Beauty Shoot Problem with Hairs in the Face

Hello,
I have a Problem with some beauty Pics. Sometimes there are -Hairs- in the face even at woman. Please look at the picture.

How can I remove this hairs without destructing the -skin texture- and without -Blur- techniques.

Thanks

Well, I think it's hard to do without blur technique but...
I used healing brush tool, than painting with a soft brush and changing opacity in vary modes.
Regards,
Dan

Search for the term: Peach Fuzz in the Search function. There was a discussion on this some time ago. I tried Vikki's method on your image, but it didn't work too well. Too contrasty I think

Re: Beauty Shoot Problem with Hairs in the Face

I've tried many ways to deal with it and my only solution is using the paint brush and sampling the color next to it with a very small brush and painting it in. the only place I really have problems is when there is soo much hair it causes an off color shadow around it. I've had images take me hours of painful painting to get right.

If you're needing to get in so close, this issue would have been best dealt with at the photo shoot (get model to wax, change lighting), any chance of a re-shoot?

I ran a highpass layer over the image, just picking up the hairs and then inverted this. Set the blending mode to hard light. Using a mask just painted over the hairs to remove the brightness of them.

Cloning carefully at 26% opcity seems to help.
