Try a New Look with Hair Color Tool

BeFunky's Hair Color tool lets you change hair color right before your eyes! With a few quick steps give yourself the makeover of your dreams! Our guide here will show you how it works.  You’ll find the Hair Color tool in the Touch Up section of the Photo Editor.

This tool is only available for BeFunky Plus subscribers. Upgrade your subscription here!


Step 1: Open your image in the Photo Editor, then head to the Touch Up section on your left sidebar.

Step 2: Choose the Hair Color effect under the Skin & Hair heading.

Step 3: Choose a color from the Color Palette. You'll see several pre-selected swatches or you can custom select a color by clicking the first box to open the Color Picker.

Step 4: Adjust the Strength, Brush Size, and Brush Hardness by dragging the sliders or inputting the percentage you'd like. Brush Size determines the surface area of your tool, while the Brush Hardness determines how soft the outlines of your edits will be. A lower hardness level will provide a more feathered appearance. Strength changes the intensity of the tool, and can be changed after you apply the edit.

Step 5: Click and drag the mouse to start applying the color to the hair in your image. After it's applied, you can move between different colors in the color palette to try out different shades.

Step 6: To make the effect more vibrant, keep applying the brush strokes over the same part of the image. Every time you run the brush over you'll add another layer of color.

Pro Tip: If you brush outside your intended area, use the Erase tool to remove part of the overlay.

Step 7: Try out some funky colors! Clicking the far left box on the color palette will open the Color Picker giving you the option to pick any color you want. Go green, blue, pink, purple!

Step 8: Click Apply to save your changes.

Pro Tip: You may need to Apply the hair color tool more than once depending on your change in color.  Each applied layer will increase the change in color.

Step 9: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
