Create a formal updo.
What better way to show off a great gown, a long pair of earrings, and a lovely necklace than with a fabulous-looking updo? The good news is that you can draw an updo in much less time than it takes to have your own hair styled in an updo (and you won’t have to use tons of bobby pins or hairspray, either).
Draw a face in profile. Sketch in an updo hair shape using thick and thin curved lines that are longer in the middle of the’do. By drawing a side view, you can show both the front and the back of the style.
Fill in the hair using short lines near the hairline and longer lines of varying lengths that extend upward. Add shading for drama. Hair is usually darkest at the nape of the neck as well as where the hair folds up over itself when styled.
When drawing updos, think everyday ponytails, buns, French twists, half up and half down, and more — the varieties are endless!
