Okay, open your cutout. The cutout has to have someone who has light hair, or parts of their hair is light. Now the only ‘hard’ part of this tutorial is selecting the hair. It’s obviously not going to be perfect, but at least try. Once you have that selected, place your gradient on top on a new layer. Set that layer to overlay, and then underneath that gradient layer, add a new adjustment layer for brightness and contrast. Play around with those settings until you have something that looks decent.

**** If you’re working with colored hair (blue, red, pink etc), it might help to add another adjustment layer for selective color and then play around with those settings as well. For the Zoe cutout, I only needed a brightness & contrast layer. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me! <3
