Is it ever possible to completely close the subject of drawing hair? After we have dealt with the basics of hair, we will now move on to draw different kinds of hairstyles in this collection of short tutorials.
The collection of different hairstyles will be extended over time. I will do my best to select interesting hairstyles, but if you want a specific hairstyle, please let me know in the comments, in an email or on social media. I will add this hairstyle right next.

Draw long, straight hair with bangs
Bangs: The best way to start is to start with the bangs, which you gently draw out with a 2H or 4H pencil. Depending on the desired length, it can be drawn over, on or under the eyebrows.
Tip: The denser the fringe should be, the higher it starts above the hairline of the forehead.
Long hair: The darkest shadows are where the hair comes out from behind the ears.
Draw long, straight hair
The trick to drawing long straight hair is to draw the course of each strand and determine which strands lie above others. Then you only have to draw the upper strands lighter than the lower ones.
Strands near the forehead and crown, for example, belong to the light areas, while the strands near the neck should be drawn much darker.
Draw a Wavy Bob
Grouping strands of hair: The easiest way to achieve this hairstyle is to divide the strands into small groups and then draw them one after the other like roof tiles, starting at the top of the head and going down.
Gloss & Shadow: When drawing, all front and top strands should be given a gloss effect. Hair behind the ears and in the area of the back of the head, on the other hand, should be drawn a little darker.
Draw a messy bun
Hairline: The first step is to draw individual strands at the hairline that hang down loosely and determine the course of the remaining hair up to the bun.
Bun: The bun is divided into two areas in which the hair runs slightly differently. Directly below the bun, draw two narrow areas where the remaining hair is wrapped around the base of the bun.
Chaos: The messy mun wouldn't be the messy bun if there weren't individual hairs sticking out everywhere ;)
Draw Sailor Moon's hairstyle
Bangs: The unmistakable bangs of Sailor Moon consist of single curled strands. These should be drawn very gently, because the supporting lines should not be visible as such in blonde hair later on.
Buns: Divide the two buns into two areas in which the hair runs in slightly different directions.
Strands: Long strands of hair come out from underneath both buns, gently curled at the end. It is best to draw them so that they are further apart at the end and closer together near the buns.
