Portrait technique in Photoshop
This technique produces a semi-saturated effect which can be attractive. Open your image in Photoshop.
Make two duplicate layers (Ctrl J twice). Your layers palette will look like this.
02-Make duplicate layers
Click on Layer 1 (the first copy layer you made).
03-Click on Layer 1
Click on Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation.
Pull the Saturation slider to the left.
04-Desaturate Layer 1
Now click on Layer 1 copy (the top layer in the Layer Palette)
05-Click on Layer 1 copy
Change the Blend Mode to Soft Light. That's all. Your portrait will look similar to this one.

If you still want to add something to this image, add a layer mask to the desaturated layer and paint back in the eyes or hair or a detail that you want to still have the original colour.
You can add a texture layer to further enhance this image.
