Add volume to hair in Photoshop

Today I’m going to talk you through a very quick tutorial on adding volume to hair in Photoshop using the Liquify tool. Below is part of an image I recently posted and you’ll notice a slight difference in the hair as I added a small amount of volume to give it extra va va voom!

Step 1. On a flattened image, create a new layer

Step 2. Go to the Filter Menu > Liquify

Step 3. Using the Forward Warp Tool from the tools menu on the left (or via the shortcut = w) adjust the brush size to suit your needs and gently pull out the edges of the hair. Be careful not to pull too close from the face as you don’t want to start warping parts you do not intend to. Once complete hit the OK button.

Step 4. In case there were areas that you did not intend to apply the filter too, this can easily be removed by adding a layer mask to your new layer and using the brush tool (make sure your colour palette is set to black and white by clicking the D button as a shortcut). Now brush with black as your foreground colour over the areas that you didn’t want the filter to be applied to, such as her face or particular strands of hair.
