For a more realistic looking hair: build your colors gradually; start with a dark color (crimson red+ burnt amber + black ), let it fully dry.

Now shape the hair with a slightly lighter color mix (burnt sienna).

Now follow the light source of the painting (in this one the light is coming from the right), now add highlights on part of the hair. Use a fine round brush to create random hairs. Work on different parts of the hair, but focus more on the right side.
