I have painted several dozen of these. If you dont mind the up close work, I recommend taking a fresh Xacto and very lightly scoring some extra hair detail in among that which is there. Once thats done, do a watered down basecoat in a color darker than what you intend to finish with, Dark orange for red heads, brown for blondes, or black for brown hair.
Finish with ultra- dry drybrushing across the hair grain that you added and promptly clearcoat when satisfied.

As for colors, I like to mix my own since small variations go a long way, and its such a small amount of area, the quantities spent are tiny. I reccommend trying any of the bone colors to flatten a color, and vivid reds and yellows to brighten a color up
