Marci

You can use the healing brush (small diameter) to get rid of most of the hair. You may want to check the box in the options to add a little texture. Then come back with the clone stamp and smooth things out.

Hi Swampy

Hello again. I'm not agree with your result. It looks retouched.
Sorry, but I do not prefer retouched look.

Thanks.

Re: Removing forehead hair

you can't really take away all of the forehead hair...that would look unnatural with this "normal" haircut...

Re: Removing forehead hair

In CS3, I would bring down the hairline with Liquify, set the blending mode of the layer to Darken and adjust its opacity to suit.

Re: Removing forehead hair

I thought the general idea was that the postee would attempt to do the best they could with their image and then the posters would offer suggestions on how to improve their work from that point? I couldn't see any attempt by this original post at all? Maybe I've read the rules wrong.

I agree you, Liz

Anyway, here is my quick attempt. Don´t fire me cause I´ve rid off (not totally, less noticesable) some spleckles. It is my taste, and I can do it or not. Of course, you can like it or not too LOL

I work in the forehead with lasso and, after this, Free transform to adjust at the hair line. Then, history brush working in the same direction of the hair to recovery some of the roots. After that, some cloning to restore the position of the forehead highlight. In the face, a little bit of D&B and finally, a bit of Degrunge (ByRO´s way) to get a more flawless sking, hide it all and masked .
Hope it helps.
