Hair Colour Correction

Hi there!
Was wondering if someone could help with this image:-

I'm wanting to get the hair all to the blonde colour that's around the jawline (so getting rid of all the brown), but I'm really struggling to get it looking natural!

Help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Hair Colour Correction

naomiw9, Welcome to RetouchPRO
Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends.
Poke around, have fun!

What photo editing software are you using...

I copied the background layer then used about 6 Screen mode layers, combined all, then used a hide all mask and painted white to bring the hair back in and lowered the opacity down to about 50%.. lightened the subject a bit then darkened the top of the background to lessen the distractions.. Of course there are many other ways to get even better results but this was quick and dirty

If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described here:

Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)

How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads:

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread, (as you did here) but also please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).

(After clicking the thumbnails give it a couple seconds to change)
