This is great tutorial by Phlearn on youtube demonstrating how to select out beautiful yet tricky curly hair.

This technique should also be effective for other hair textures as well.

Have used Photoshop from 1994 and use all of the selection methods. The biggest challenge for me are images that have both hard, precise areas and hair to select. I end up using two layers with selections and masks that are created with different methods. A pain! Do you know an easier approach?
Hi Colin, I have tried several times with curly hair with different techniques, but I struggle with select and mask. Whatever way I do, I get half transparent curls by the edge, even if I decontaminate colors. Any clue? Thanks.
