Requested by homaki13 and xxsmoothopexx.
comment here please! (.psd available there)

Get your base ready, dudes. Mine is by </a>valo_princess of Avril Lavigne. Get whatever image you want but this tutorial works best with any yellow/blond you want to stick out and/or red (: 'Kay. I duplicated my base once and set the copy to Soft Light 100%. Do whatever feels right, heh.

Make a color fill layer with #17000f. Set it to Screen 100%.

Let's make another color fill layer! Fill it with #8a6d80 - yay! Set it to Soft Light 100%.

Make a Hue/Saturation layer with these settings.
Saturation: +30
Saturation: +50

Now let's make a Selective Color layer! Whee!
Reds: 0, 0, +40, 0
Yellows: 0, 0, +100, 0
Whites: 0, 0, 0, -30
Blacks: 0, 0, 0, +10

Make a Curves layer on RGB.
Input: 130, Output: 149

Make 'nother Selective Color layer.
Reds: -100, +100, +100, -50
Yellows: 0, 0, +100, 0

'Kay. Now make a Channel Mixer layer.
Red: +90, +10, -8
Green: 0, +99, 0
Blue: 0, +10, +90

Now make a color fill layer with #000415 on Exclusion 100%.

Yay! You're done!
