HAIR DRAWING TUTORIAL: 10 TRENDY HAIRSTYLES

In this fashion drawing tutorial, you are going to learn how to draw 10 classic hairstyles. Moreover, many of them can be mixed together to get an absolutely different look (e.g. top knot + wavy hair).

If you have any difficulties drawing heads or faces, check this tutorial.  Click here to learn how to draw a head at different angles. As a base, I am using 2.5 x 1.5 cm head drawing.

HAIR DRAWING TUTORIAL

Well, first of all, we need to define a hairline. It is very important that you draw it correctly. If you do so, you will get a proportional forehead and enough space for the top of a head. Draw it as shown on the image below. Remember that

1. The length of a forehead is similar to the nose length.

2. Hair parting stops before reaching the outline of a head.

3. A cheekbone sets the direction of a hairline.

Here is the list of ten hairstyles that you can draw following the visual instructions.

Each new step is in blue color. All the previous steps are in red.

NO.1 – DRAWING STRAIGHT LONG HAIR A LA “KIM KARDASHIAN”

NO.2 – DRAWING MILKMAID BRAID

1. Draw the front hair (1). Divide the strands with lines of various lengths (2).

2. Draw the first line of the braid as shown below (3).

3. Draw the second line of the braid (4). Basically, you have to connect two segments of the previous row with an arch. Add several locks and hairs to give the drawing a natural look (5).

The length of the hairstyle (from its top to the hairline) is equal to the length of the face (from the chin to the eyebrows).

NO.8 – DRAWING CURLS

This one is a bit more challenging, but it’s worth it.

1. Just draw step by step all the lines and/or locks until no.15.

2. Add some strand-lines within the sections that you’ve got by drawing all the previous lines.

3. Add some extra locks in the lower part.

Here, on her right, you see that the hair is just slightly above the top of the head. However, it is almost “one eye” away from her ear.

1. Draw the two hair sections as shown below. Don’t forget the arrow.

2. From the arrow point, start drawing the braid (1). Draw short curved lines in sections (2) and (3). Add a lock (4). Draw the point where later we will add the braid (5).

3. Draw the braid. Draw some locks on the other side.

4. Finish drawing the other side as shown below.

      Is it “next week” yet? 🙂

      I have seen those you have colored on You Tube. Are they what you are referring to? I love, love, love all your tutorials. Please keep them coming! Also, I have about 30 Copics. I don’t feel I have a grasp on them. I feel the look a bit splotchy rather than ‘perfectly’ smooth. Am I expecting too much?
