Hello everyone, how is the day going so far for all you creative people out there? I’m doing well and to prove it, I will be uploading some cool tutorials for this new drawing day. I will begin by sharing with you a lesson that I made yesterday. I was looking through the hair section under both the anime and people category on Dragoart. As I sat there looking at all the different tutorials, I noticed that there hasn’t been a recent submission on ""how to draw hair for girls". After thinking about what type of lesson to create, I came up with a good idea on the different styles, and concepts that you could create for your female figure drawings. I thought I was going to dislike the task of drawing hair, but I actually enjoyed creating a new concept that is going to make drawing hair for girls a lot funnier that you could think. The hair styles are super pretty, and I would totally use one of my own lessons to dress up my female character. Thanks for joining me with another great submission, be sure to come back or stick around to see what else I have in store for you guys today. Peace out people!

How to Draw Hair For Girls

STEP 1.

Here is four different types of hairstyles that I like using on some of my female figure drawings. The first is a short, up-feathered due that is great for a lot of anime or manga characters. The second long curly style is a great concept for any type of female figure, and the third or forth hairstyle can be used on a sporty figure, or even a girl dressed in a gown or casual wear.

This is the same face you just drew in all of the previous steps. The only difference to the faces in this step, is some lines are erased because that is where the hair falls on their face.

You can either choose to draw all the styles you see here, or you can just pick one from the finished drawing in tip step 2. The first style starts with curly lines, the second starts with some straight, razor type hair chunks, and then the other two are drawn in parted styles with the lower left one being an up-do.
