How to remove Hair and make someone Bald

Subha Pindiproli , Mar 28, 2007; 11:54 a.m.

I would like to know if there are any simple techniques in taking a picture of a fully haired man and make him bald and age him a little.

Can it be done in Adobe Photoshop CS?

I know it is easy to add hair using brush and selecting different styles of hair..

thank you

Use a photo of someone else's bald head and use layer masks in photoshop to blend them.

Try a razor or better yet, ask Britney.

Add a lot of Nair to their shampoo.

Agree with the blending method suggested above.

LOL, that was my good laugh of the day.

To do this convincingly, the bald head has to be lit with the same lighting that was used for the rest of the picture, so that the shadows and highlights fall in the right place and are the right size and hardness. At least the lighting should be very similar. I don't think a simple plugin is going to do it.

Chemotherapy.

A few grains of thallium will do the job.

Time and children.
