Make your fashionista’s hair shine.

Add shine to your fashion figure’s hair when you want it to really gleam — which can be anytime you draw hair. After you’ve drawn a head with the basic facial features and hairline mapped out, you can create shine in two ways.

Line technique: For the line technique, simply draw lines and leave blank areas on the paper to create shine.

Shading approach: For the shading approach, use the side of your pencil as well as the eraser to vary the shading of the hair. Shade the hair vertically with a pencil and then drag your eraser in a horizontal line across it to create highlights.
