Noob question about masking in Zbrush

Hey guys, I'm doing a tutorial for Fibremesh in Zbrush. Anyways on the tutorial when the person masks a portion of the head the mask is quite sharp, but on my one the mask is blurry. Obviously this isn't ideal for a hairline, I would like a sharp mask line rather than a blurry gradient and I can't find the setting to change it. How would I do this? Thanks!

Ctrl+Alt+click on your mask to sharpen it. Ctrl+click to blur it. You can also find these same functions in the masking dropdown of your main palette.

To add to what musashidan posted, there are other ways also to get a sharp mask. One way that gives really sharp masks on even low poly objects is to use the slice curve brush make a new polygroup of the area you want hair on. Then just mask that polygroup. Once you have made the hairline and done your hair, you can merge the new polygroup back to the old one.
I like to learn.
