Draw a wild-looking crop of curls.

Curly hair looks lively in fashion drawings! Wheather it’s for men or women, letting the curls do their own thing creates a fun and playful look. Curls can go anywhere from the red carpet to a college dorm to the basketball court.

Draw a head, complete with the basic facial features mapped out and the central part of the hairline started.

Using the side of your pencil, start by drawing several loose zigzag lines, beginning at the center of your figure’s head and working downward. Make sure to sketch in some hair next to the neck to represent the hair at the back of the head. For the best type of zigzag line, use both the side as well as the point of your pencil to show texture.

If you want more dimension and volume, simply add more zigzag lines and use a range of dark and light lines. Add a curl coming down from the part to soften the look.

Don’t make the zigzag lines even, or your hair will appear lifeless. Vary the lengths of the zigzags, and don’t be afraid to overlap your lines. End the hair between the chin and the shoulder line.
