I'm not so good in photoshop and I have to postprocess 1 picture of a model, but her long straight hair isn't quiet in model (part messy over her shoulder and you see her arm).
It seems easy to fix, I tried the clone brush in photoshop and i can make the hair longer over the shoulder, but it doesn't look so natural, a bit waffle patern.
How can I fix hair and keep it natural looking, or would anyone help me if I email the picture to you ?
Thanks!

Post the picture to sendspace.com (raw file if you have it) and i'm sure someone will edit it for you. It will ask for your email and the person's email that you're sending it to but you can put in x@hotmail.com (external link)...

Helpful advice is a LOT easier to give when we can see that problem image?

Clone and Healing tools are difficult to use on hair. I find it better to use a cut-paste-warp-mask technique.

Use the Lasso tool to select and cut a good section from somewhere.

Paste that on a new layer, lower the opacity (about 70%) so you can see better, Ctrl-t transform and move it into place. Rotate, stretch, warp to best match the pattern. Opacity back to 100%, then mask and go around the edges with a soft brush to blend in.

It might take several sections to best cover a single area.

Fortunately, there are helpful folks here, someone has opened to possibility of someone (or ones) helping by doing the edit for you, thanks to the community here!

But I think that a more long-term path for you is to learn some "stuff"! I'd ask anyone who helps out to make sure they get you a file complete with layers, and to fill you in with whatever specifics they did, so you can get some practice, and then the next time this type of thing comes up you can be one of the helpful "experts"!:)!

Yes but time is too limited to follow a course now.
I posted the link, can anyone help me fixing the hair on the right side, more hair over the arm, so looking fuller but still natural?

Redcrown's suggestion would work best on that image.

here is my attempt. i don't know how to use cloning tools properly so i tried method described by REDCROWN but crude version of it, as i do not know how to use laso tools and so i duplicated the picture and moved and rotated the upper picture , as suggested by Redcrown used masking to get the hair from upper picture. Even though my attempt has lot of defects but the method suggested by RedCrown is not difficult to use so with little bit practice should be able to get better result.

if you shoot raw and make a habit of not letting highlights blow , then the
post processing would be pretty straight forward and you would not need photoshoping the image.

Is this anywhere close to what you're wanting? Depends on what size you're needing and use as to whether it may need a little "finer" inspection.
