When I take a photo and there is some hair in disorder, how should I ask the photographer to edit it for me? Should I say

"Could you edit those hair in disorder for me?"

or

"Could you erase the tousle for me? "

Which one is better?

  • I would phrase it like this: "Can you fix my hair in this photograph using an editing program like Adobe Photoshop or PortraitPro?" – Mark Hubbard Oct 1 '16 at 21:55

Ask the photographer to touch it up. If you are filling out a form, check the box marked "touch-up".

Please do a little touching up -- I don't need much -- just remove the stray hairs, please.

Hair can be

tousled

here

messy

here

misplaced

here

each describes the general look of the hair as a whole.

It is much easier to say to the editor to

Please fix my hair so it's not so tousled / messy / misplaced.

here

Or you could also say

Please erase those loose hairs for me.

While pointing to the hairs you are talking about.

  • Pity the viewer on a mobile, @Peter. Are humongous images a considerate choice? Nice hair porn, though. – P. E. Dant Reinstate Monica Oct 2 '16 at 2:17
