I'm half-way through! The trick is to keep separating that hair, curl by curl. I start with the darks again, add the orangey highlights and finally with my really fine brush and a bit of turps, the highlights. Don't forget the shadows - purples - where the hair, even the wispy bits, caste a shadow over the underlying hair.
