Using brushes in photoshop CS3?

I know there are tutorials around but I cannot find the right one I'm looking for.  I've never used brushes in Photoshop before.  I figured out how to load them but I'm still very confused on how to make them the right color or rotate the brush around... 

For example, I DL hair brushes to add more hair on a girl.  But the brush color never matches the hair (even if I work in layers) and I can only do one side because I don't know how to rotate/mirror the brush!  I feel very naive, not being able to figure this out, but if anyone can help me, that would be fantastic.  Thank you.
