    @limr, the most important is the context. If you're referring to some strangers, I agree calling them boy/girl is not a good way to go. However, if you know the person and you're among friends, it's perfectly fine. I know many people around 40-50 who often refer to themselves as boys and girls when they meet.

    I agree with @Destin on this one, people are getting waaay oversensitive these days... This thread should be about dealing with hair in post-process, not one of those PC debates. Just because OP called the human female "a girl"...

    Not everyone is like "oh I am an independent strong woman and you should refer to me as such you puny earthling!". Maybe she likes feeling a bit younger and OP knows her well.

    @DGMPhotography , did you show her the picture yet? I'd probably ask her first and then schedule a re-shoot if she's not happy. Trying to solve things like this in post is usually not worth it and simple re-shoot would be better and faster.

    In my thesaurus, the term girl or boy refers to a person who has not yet reached the age maturity, so as you age the threshold for maturity tends to rise.

    But as the OP has been chastised already, on the use of the term enough, back on point. Have you tried using the "select and mask" feature in PS. I've only started using it, but I've found the refine edge (with options) to be very useful. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sou...EQwqsBCEAwAg&usg=AOvVaw0GiRnyveeEeAYRj69JelKO

    Talk about reading into a comment. Where did I say that 'woman' should refer to a certain kind of woman? As for the 'oversensitive' charge...yeah yeah, heard it before, will hear it again, not particularly bothered to worry about what others think. I'm talking about precision in language. It's inaccurate to call someone past childhood either 'girl' or 'boy.'

    As for the photo, what is it for? Why does it matter that her hair has a little frizz? Is she bothered by it? If she is, then reshoot, and perhaps consider a darker background since there may not be much she can do about the frizz. It's not just a matter of believing in conditioner or not. Someone could have perfectly smooth hair going out of the house, but if it's humid out, hair can take on a life of its own.

    As someone who’s hair gets that same frizz when it’s humid out, regardless of conditioner used, the best way to tame that pre-shoot is with some hair oil followed by some “play dirty” hair wax spray or some Frizz Ease Secret weapon cream. You may want to keep some on hand for next time. Also if you're shooting in a studio, make sure it’s nice and cool in there.

    When did I say you said it? Maybe my English skills are severely lacking, but all I said is that it all depends on the context in which this happens and it's perfectly fine if both parties are comfortable with it.

    That's obviously why you're here, explaining yourself and expressing your opinions on a public forum. Because you just don't care :)

    Anyway, talking about grammar and correctness reminded me of an old video
