Change Hair Color With Photoshop

This tutorial will show you how to change the hair color easily with Photoshop. The effect looks natural and beautiful but very easy to achieve!

Step 1:
First open the photo you want to make this effect on. In this tutorial I use the photo below:

Before getting started, you should make here skin smoother by going to Filter>Blur>Surface Blur and use these settings:

Step 2:
Press D and X to reset and swap your foreground and background colors. Enter the Quick Mask Mode (Q) and use a soft brush to color some parts of her hair

Then exit the Quick Mask mode. Now you can see there are 2 areas: selected area and unselected area as below. The area that we painted on is now turn into unselected area

Step 3:
Press Ctrl-Shift-I to invert the selection areas

Step 4:
Press Ctrl-J to create a new layer with the selected area duplicated so that we can process it as we want

Step 5:
Go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation (Ctrl-U) to bring up the Hue/Saturation box, adjust sliders to achieve the color you want

Step 6:
We should make it smoother and more natural so go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. This tool makes the edges' hair become smoother

Step 7:
Finally change the Blending mode of this layer to Soft Light instead of Normal. It looks cooler a bit!

Hope you enjoy this tutorial!
