    Okay, so i know that when i first started out, the hardest thing to do for me, was make hair textures. I couldn't figure out how to do it. A lot of people think you need Photoshop to do it, but here is a quick way to do it with gimp(:
    Note: This way doesn't work particularly good if you're starting out with dark hair.

    Okay, so open Gimp2. And get your texture loaded:

    And now, click on your path tool.

    and start out lining the hair texture.

    Once you finish, click "Select" at the top and then click "From Path"

    Now select "air brush"

    Say you wanted pink hair, so you choose your color.

    Now, we make the size of the brush pretty big. I like to do somewhere around 546.
    and Turn the Opacity down to about 75
    and lightly airbrush the hair.

    Finishing Product:
    Hope this helped!(:

    It's much easier if you mess around with these and using the paint brush.

    I would recomend going with Multiply or Color.

    Here's an even faster way to do quick yet effective recolors.

    1. Use Colour Wand to select what you want to edit. Once selected, press Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V. This should paste your selection in a new layer. If it pastes it in the same layer, just create a new layer and paste it into there. Move into place if required.

    2. Desaturate the new layer completely. This should leave you with a simple gray recolour. Brighten/darken if required (pretty much dark to bright and vice versa will require this)

    3. Create a new layer and use the Fill bucket with whatever colour you want. Right click the new layer and click "create clipping mask", and then change the layer type (check Chaos_Knight's spoiler) to "overlay". This layer should be place directly on top of the separated texture.

    And there you go. Takes maybe 30 minutes for a full recolour. This method is advantageous because you can save it with everything in the texture separated into layers, making for super-quick recolouring, literally less then a minute depending on the complexity of the your texture.

    I normally use Photoshop for recolours so some of this may be wrong for GIMP users. I don't see why GIMP wouldn't have any of the features I mentioned, though.

    Confusing, but worth learning. It's easily the fastest way to recolour.

    To each their own, however. You can make recolours whichever way you please. I figured I'd just share how I make them, because I've gotten great results using this method.
