I played some more with the 'hair colouring' method that I came across accidentally when making an image I posted to RJKD's polka dot thread.

This time I used an old B/W photo of Jean Shrimpton from the mid sixties and tried out several different variations to the method, including layer masks to better isolate components. Then I tried various blend modes for the newly created image on top of the original. I also coloured in the eyes and lips for some added effect.

Here are the outcomes, all of which could be further improved using say 'colour curves' or similar colour/brightness filters.

They are, in order left to right, top then bottom rows – Original photo; Overlay version; Darken Only version; Color @ 75% version; Grain Merge version; Saturation at @ 85% version.
