Here I'll show you how to make professional processing of hair in Photoshop, add different shades and bring some shine to the hair.

Ok, move to the next step. Now, proceed to the coloring of hair. I prefer to create multiple strands and make them different colors. For this effect use the Polygonal Lasso Tool to create selection as on my picture below and fill selected area with color of #ef8008 on the new layer.
