zizunette asked for xtatiq's colorings on this icon. i tried to reproduce it. i got something. it is not exaclty the same and i hope xtatiq won't bite me XD!
this tut is a mess and my english is awful, so, forgive me XD!.

let's start.

1. duplicate the base and set it on screen (opacity 100% - fill 50%):
->
2. make a new hue/saturation layer. up the saturation to +22 and the lightness to +7:
->
3. make a new levels layer with this settings:
RBG: (input) 35 / 1,50 / 255
RED: (input) 34 / 1,16 / 255
GREEN: (input) 0 / 1,10 / 255
BLUE: (input) 10 / 1,00 / 255 - (output) 15 / 255
->
4. add a new solid color (#535353) and set it on soft light:
->
5. duplicate the base, bring it on top and set it on soft light (opacity 100% - fill 50%):
->
6. make a new color balance layer with this settings:
SHADOWS: 0 / 0 / -26
MIDTONES: 0 / 0 / +29
->
7. make a new selective color layer with this settings and then, set it on darken (opacity 38% - fill 100%):
RED: cyan 0 / magenta 0 / yellow +58 / black 0
YELLOW: cyan 0 / magenta 0 / yellow +20 / black -21
WHITE: cyan 0 / magenta 0 / yellow 0 / black -39
BLACK: cyan 0 / magenta 0 / yellow 0 / black +100
->
8. then, make a new solid color filled with #0A0501. this is the background. make a new layer and apply the image (SHIFT+ALT+CTRL+E). add a layer mask to this level, zoom and erase around her hair (my explanation sucks -_-):
->
9. make a new selective color layer with this settings and then, set it on darken (opacity 100% - fill 100%):
RED: cyan 0 / magenta 0 / yellow 0 / black +100
YELLOW: cyan 0 / magenta 0 / yellow 0 / black -34
WHITE: cyan 0 / magenta 0 / yellow 0 / black -53
NEUTRAL: cyan +19 / magenta -12 / yellow -21 / black +13
->
10. last step =)! make a new gradient layer. i need to show you what to do because i have no idea about the english-photoshop words:
->
set the gradient layer on softlight and voilà =):
->

i'm sorry because it's a terrible mess =).
