1. How to Draw Anime Hair

  • Let's take a look at the method behind drawing anime hair first. Once you understand it, you'll be able to create your own anime hairstyles with no help!

Step 1

  • Hair doesn't lie flat on the skull. Always start by defining some distance right above the head, drawing a simple helmet like this:   

Step 2

  • Next, sketch a simple outline of the hairstyle. How long is it? What is its general shape? This will help you see the effect of the hair on the composition before actually drawing it.

Step 3

  • Hair needs to reveal the face in some way. Draw the outline of the bangs, or move the hair to the sides.

Step 4

  • Now sketch the inner outline of the hair. Imagine the hair as a single mass, and mark its edges.

Step 5

  • Next, find the secondary rhythm in the hair. Mark it with lines and curves. The fewer of them, the better.

Step 6

  • Outline the rhythm lines, creating strands of hair.

Step 7

  • Finally, draw additional lines repeating the rhythm, simulating the spaces between thinner strands.
