It look so heavily photoshopped that is hard to say which hair it was ...and IF there was some SL hair used - the top of the head looks a little like RL photo morph. And with no doubts entire hair has texture drawned in photoshop (or other editor). SL hairs inworld doesn't look like that.

You get the idea that this image is a post production enhancement made in Photoshop. The hair has had special attention/enhancement.

You can see a pro painting in the fine fly-away hair in this tutorial. 

The fine hair shown in the SL Pic of the Day had to be added. We know because all SL hair is done with a texture on a polygon... meaning gets painted in in a similar way. We can't make polygons that fine that render in SL. While we sort-of-could the time needed to do so and the ACI cost is simply too great. So, we paint.

I suspect the more realistic looking fine hair is done by working at extremely high resolution while painting and the reducing the resolution when the final image is generated.

I assume you like the fine detail not just the style. As Lindal wrote, there are numerous stylists making similar styles of hair. But, none will have that level of fine detail. So, we make the point so you won't spend your life looking for something that doesn't exist in SL.
