In every beauty, portrait and fashion image, the face usually takes up the majority of our retouching time and although the hair is often secondary, it can never be ignored. While we use some of the same tools for retouching hair as we do for skin, the techniques and challenges vary quite greatly.
Having an experienced hairstylist on set will help you create a finished look, but once the model begins to move and pose for the camera, it is next to impossible to keep the hair as perfect as we would like. Since getting a strong pose, facial expression and perfect makeup is often more important than keeping strands in check, the job of making the hair look good often falls on the retoucher.
Despite the retouching challenges, a skilled hair retouch makes a tremendous difference in the final image, helping achieve a clean editorial or commercial result. With this video course, our goal is to teach you how to fix common hair issues in beauty, portrait and fashion photography using simple retouching tools and techniques, while offering a variety of methods to take the struggle out of the process.
