Does anyone have any idea about how to edit like this in Photoshop? I have used Google to search for this, but have found nothing.

The Oil Paint filter. –  Scott May 23 at 6:31
To try and deconstruct how this was done, it's always help to start with the same source image and try to recreare it. Google's reverse image search is handy for that –  JohnB May 23 at 9:00

Select the filter Menu -> Oil paint…, and use the following settings as shown in the image below to get this effect. Adjust your own settings according to your picture.

In your sample hairs looks like painted over with tiny brush and tablet. Not a filter. Not sure that such effect can be achived just with a filter.
