This in my opinion is the best easiest and simplest way to edit hair color in photoshop watch an learn young padawans

Instructions are as follows,

Open image
Create new adjustments layer> choose color you wish
Set Layer blend to Overlay
Fill adjustments layer with black to mask everything> Paint back in color with white and your paintbrush.
Double click layer to change the color to your choosing

Most importantly have fun!

I'm trying this out on paint shop pro, I think I found something similar but it's hard to make it change colors like you did. |D;

oh my god! this is a great tutorial, Its been a while since i worked in photoshop and this tutorial is really going to help me when I do my photo edits for my cosplay images until I can get my accessories together.

If you do more tutorials on Layers or working with editing (such as getting rid of stray hairs, cloning, or anything with adding a background to another image) I would love to see them.

Thank you so much for posting this!

Damn, yesterday i was playing around with my photo, and wanted to change my haircolor in to white or grey. It didnt work to my frustration... :(

But this is a great help. Question: does this also work in the GIMP? (thats the program I'm using)

Not bad not bad. A good concept. I'm trying to change the color of some murky water to something that's a little more clear and natural and wsa having a little difficulty.

I'm going to play around with this and see what I can come up with.
