Now select the brush tool from the toolbox and make sure that the foreground color is white (Picture A). If you can’t find black or white color in this place, just press “D”. Then It will become the default color (Black & White). If you have black as foreground color, then press “X”. It will switch the foreground and background color.
While selecting the brush tool, right-click on the canvas, and select a soft round brush (Picture B). You can change the value of brush size & Hardness as you want. Now all set. In the next step, we gonna change the hair color with Photoshop.

If you want to erase the painted areas, press the “X” button, and paint it again on the hair. That trick will erase the painted areas.
