... or - "I washed my hair last night and now I can't do a thing with it".
I added to the look here with a filter I've not used in ages - in PS in the filters menu under the "Stylise" tab is the Emboss filter which moves a layer of the picture a given number of pixels in a direction as designated. I just used the default of 3 pixels (do this on a full size image on screen). It increases wrinkles so don't use it on your wife or mother - mother-in-law is fine tho (and great for something like grizzled macho cowboy types, Diane). I also sharpened with the high pass filter with blend mode vivid light to accentuate it even more. He was having a bad hair day but I made it worse.

I think I would have to be very careful with this filter. To some people wrinkles are a badge to be worn proudly showing their struggle with life while for other people there is a continual struggle to make sure they have no wrinkles. I'll leave this filter in your capable hands Vic. A distinct Jimmy Page feel to the portrait on a bad hair day.

Talk about a "Bad Hair Day"!!!! This guy is in serious need of pair of scissors or even a string to tie this up with. How can he see where he is going when the wind is blowing. Magnificent details here!

I love this hair, hope he does not cut it. I guess I'm in favor of the untamed look :-)
