In this GIMP tutorial you'll learn some techniques to remove the background from an image with hair. Cut out hair. I'm explaining step by step in this "How to in GIMP" so you'll know how to make a cut out of an image with hair.

I'm using layer masks, the clone tool and give some tips on the burn tool in GIMP. 

A lot of the techiniques I used I've learned and/or adapted from this video from blackmoondev:

The reason I adapated it is because I tried to make it easy to follow for gimp beginners as well. 

Here's a link to the image I used:
