that's not good, he is using the high pass filter everywhere. U do that for a serious job and ...well... u're out of a job.

if u're interested in learning that anywaydo a search for high pass thing or degrounge

high pass here is the final stage I think.. what about not straight hair which was made straight?

1- He didn't "Make it straight" he used parts of the existing straight hair (Maybe even other shoots we can't see)

2- The final image is very noisy (Even in the small preview) I can't imagine what the big tif looks like.

3- I don't see who he has worked with but I can tell u... I really don't care that much, because I know what I see and any retoucher who has worked for any known hair product company is going to tell u the same thing.

4- He has some GREAT beauty tho - Really great that Davolo photographer is very good.

5- I wish Ant were still here

Quite a crappy attitude Godmother.
If you do not care than why did you comment.
Also when you made such a Harsh comment, I looked at your "flckR" site and you need some brushing up on your skills as well.
Nothing impressive about your retouching really either.

Did you have a bad day?

I'm not having a bad day and I don't have a bad attitude either. So I'm not allowed to dislike something???

u're asking again and I told u how he does it.

He is using the straight parts and transforming them to fit the areas. I'm guessing he also does a bit of drawing with the finger on a new layer sampling the tones.

Then he finishes it off with the high pass thing.

now... ppl... I'm not a grumpy lady and anyone who has talked to me can say so.

Re: Professional hair retouch - Ludovic Taillandie

Ole Baldy no disrespect but is NOT the way the posted images was done. NO WAY.
It is what Godmother suggested. Warpoing and transforming REAL hair into the shape.
I technically know how it is done , but could not offer help to the person asking help as I would not want to lead them in the wrong direction.
The method you posted I use sometimes or the smudge tool and smudge existing hair when needed.
But the image posted is no way done by scratch. It is tweaked from real hair I would say.
Snook
The tutorial posted always looks fake or smudge.
