Painting. Meat color extending into the hair. This is so that the meat can be seen on the color and the hair does not look unnatural. Keep in mind that your hair is much more than a coat, so you have to paint the layers. There are also hundreds of shades of hair color. In order to make it as simple as possible to try based on each portrait, blonde, brown (this includes red), black or gray.
The hair paint the whole area is very easy to mix one of these colors. These so-called overtones. During this painting it will actually be at its peak, because you work, you can not cover it all. Observe where the dark or shaded areas and paint them. Now a darker color and start to caress the hair strands. Black is the opposite. Start with the darkest of undertones, then add lighter layers.
