hair advice needed

I have few images with hair like attached sample shows. The only one option is long cloning tool work? Maybe there's some faster [it doesn't need to be high end] way to get nice hair?

Re: hair advice needed

I cut a selection of good hair using copy paste and then puppet warp to fill the gaps, then the content aware fill to make it match!!

Re: hair advice needed

It is also easy to make a quick hair brush and add some dark, medium, light strokes...just takes a few seconds.

Re: hair advice needed

Zoom in a little

Fill a blank layer with white

Get a hard black brush and make a some dots maybe 7 to 10..no pattern necessary fairly close together.

Now make a selection around the dots and make a brush.

Delete the layer

In the brush engine change the spacing to 1

Transfer to 250 or so...up to you

Ready to go...#11 is the brush I made and I used.

Start with dark and on different layers use lighter colors...then with a single round brush on pen pressure draw a few stray hairs.
