10. Hair advert retouch

To produce the highest quality hair images for advertising the hair has to look perfect. Hair by its very nature is a challenging subject for retouchers as each strand is a detailed configuration of pixels that must not be compromised. Whilst a time consuming process the right techniques will reveal a final image worthy of high-end and large scale print advertising.


  1. That’s a lot of work to do! I think I better portray bald people hehehe. Thanks for sharing the best techniques for hair retouch. Amazing

  2. Very interesting to watch!
    At the end the model and hair had been cut and put on a new background and the smudge tool was being used at the edge of the hair to create new strands and give it a more natural look.
    Will you guys ever make a tutorial with a closer look on that technique?

  3. Hi Karl Taylor, I’m stunned by the immense usefulness of these videos made with Viktor and by the wide range of subjects that you cover on your educational website. I would make you a technical question about this video. When he clone stamps the single strands and sets its size to the size of the strands, does it go 100% hardness or stays 0%. I’ve seen that when he resized the clone stamps it was set to 0% hardness but then it wouldn’t be difficult to completely clone the single strands as the edges are feathered? Thank you
