STEP 1. Define the motion of your hair. This is very important. This helps you figure out what motion your hair is moving in. The hair style to the left is more of a bouncy curly style. This is considered hard for some people. Each curl you make must be bouncy looking. To the right, is the straight style hair? School girls in Japan wear this style. The motion that the hair is going in is straight. Be sure to add some splits at the end of it!   STEP 2. Begin with your hair drawing by sketching out a mannequin head. Don't draw any facial details!   STEP 3. Roughly, sketch your hair out. This is ideal to define the motion your hair is going in. At this point the sketch looks like a big python wrapped around the head   STEP 4. Next, start to sketch in some thick strands. Later, these strands will be filled in by more thinner strands. Draw some thick curls too.   STEP 5. When you draw curly hair, make them seem to have a lot of bounce. Don't make them lifeless and flat. To make these curls, draw them nice and loopy. This will make your hair seem thick and attractive.   STEP 6. Start adding some thick strands to the left side of the hair. Make sure they all connect to the ending tips. This gives the hair volume.   STEP 7. Now, the fun part. Start sketching in some of those thinner strands. Make most of these where the hair starts. At the tips of the hair, add more of these thin strands. This makes your hair seem more realistic and bouncy.   STEP 8. Enough strands, and you should come out with this. I didn't ink out my hair, but when you do, your hair should look realistic. This is also a good idea for drawing manga hair. Well I hope my realistic hair tutorial taught you a lot.
