Part 8. Flattering Your Subjects > Changing Hair Color

Changing Hair Color

Being able to digitally recolor hair opens up all kinds of possibilities. Try on new looks and print them out to show the colorist at your hair salon. Change your Web photo because an ardent admirer has a thing for redheads. Or—go blue, pink, or green without fear of social stigma.

Switch to the Lasso tool, or press L.

Click and drag to trace the outline of the hair.

Choose Layer, New Adjustment Layer, Hue/Saturation.

NOTE

It's Cake, It's a Sandwich

There's a lot more about layers in a later part, but in these steps you're creating a special layer to contain just the Hue/Saturation effect. This adjustment layer doesn't contain any part of the image. By selecting the area you want to modify before creating the adjustment layer, you restrict its effects to that area.


Click OK.

Adjust sliders to change the hair color.

Click OK.
