Got it. With this image, I just remove those white hair that ramdomly go across. Man, hair is another beast. Copy and paste from existing parts, warping and such can still be a tedious job depending the area needed for the replacement. You are right about the multiple head shots that can be copied from to replace existing empty areas.
Do retouchers use this technique or do they draw them on using their tablet pen?
You might have not have to remove just subdue it and but when you are trying to remove go with the grain try to make it look real. For a real job you might draw in a few here and there but not too much it won't look real and it's obvious, usually a combo of both. So you will get a drive with the shoot and you will be able to pull from there usually the photographer (hopefully) has thought about this in advance but if not there are always bits here and there that are very helpful, time is money. But do learn to draw hair it will come in handy.
Natalia's dvd has some hair stuff on it, get that one. It might be CS5 or 4 (not sure) but it is still relevant.
