Facial hair

Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on how to lose soft, fine facial hair on female faces through Photoshop?

GRW, welcome to Retouch Pro. You could try the tutorial by Ro at the link shown below.
There are other tutorials on RP that will help as well if you search through the archive.
Regards, Murray

Re: Facial hair

Either dodge and burn using small brushes - the "Darken brush" technique - or replacing entire areas of skin and re-texturising. Depends on type of hair, level of retouch, and how much of a 'gorilla' the model is.

Re: Facial hair

You could also duplicate the layer use gausian blur until the small hairs disappear and then add a black mask and paint back in the areas with a soft brush at low opacity
