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

For Black hair I tend to use:
Base Chaos Black.
1st Highlight Necron Abbyss.
2nd Highlight Necron Abbyss 90% White 10% mix.
3rd Highlight Necron Abbyss 80% White 20% mix.
This results in a Anime sort of Black and the percentages are really only a rough guide to be played about with for personal preferance.

so far I have painted these faces but they need hair. I'm looking for different types.

Space wolves' hair advice?
I have a red corsairs army that I'm working on and after seeing this post I've decided to steal his idea. I bought the Space Wolves Pack (which comes w/ 56 heads!) and I plan on using the 10 as Chosen. The rest of the heads I would like to exchange for the bunny ears on my 40+ berzerkers.
I was wondering if I could get different hair painting recipes from you guys?
I would like to steer away from grey hair because I really can't see old veterans being converted by Huron. I think it would be mostly initiate blood claws.
Edit: Gathered recipes
