Step 4 – HairIf you are happy with the smudged skin, delete the layer containing the lady with the original skin and duplicate the one you were working on. Now work on the duplicated one. Load the Hair Photoshop brush. Select once again the Smudge tool and choose the 200px brush. I set 40px and Strength 95%. Start from the top of the hair and go down smudging out to create some strands (from inside to outside). Once you have smudged out the borders low the strength of the brush at 86% and paint the hair following its direction like you are combing it. Brush size varies. It depends on how much is big the part to smudge. When you’re done delete the high part of the hair. This is so far the result after smudging skin and hair.
Step 5 – Adjusting ColorsAdd a Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer (only for the lady): Red (Saturation -45) Yellow (Saturation -28) Add a Color Balance Adjustment Layer (only for the lady):
- Shadows: -20 +4 -8
- Midtones: -12 +13 +9
- Highlights: -19 +2 0
