@Shoku

The thing about the second strand of hair brushes... Well yes, they might work for the "second layer" of hairs, but no way for the top as hairs criss-cross even on straight hair, so perfectly parallel hairs are no good. Maybe for masks and a strand on the edge here and there.

The first set... oh my. So you took a bitmap and turned into a brush? Wouldn't it be easier to just keep that mask and use those as hair grafts, as in to keep the color? How do you use these, I'm curious?

The second set uses various Shape Dynamics and Transfer settings, which helps with overlap and a natural appearance. Hair should be created with multiple strokes, these brushes speed up that process.

The first set is very helpful with edges, especially when used with the clone tool, to create quick extensions and fly-a-ways, and to fill in areas where the original lacks fullness or has holes.

Those hair brushes, awesome! I've always been using the smudge technique but this will speed up the process for sure!
