Next, we will add some details and draw the hair looks. This is how you can draw here. Locks easily. Consider what sing several times if required. Girl here is mostly coiled or spiral sipped, so it consists up locks of hair twirling and interlocking with each other. You can try in slightly different ways as well, like this, then, at a new layer on top of the sketch layer and name it hair looks now based on how curly you want. Draw the locks as the logs interlock with one another. You don't have to make its girl perfect, but try to make the turns for the same direction to make it look natural. - If you end up making it too messy, like mine, lower this layers a pass iti and create a new layer on top. On the new layer, you can outline some of the girls. It's not really necessary. However, it will make the locks more distinguishable. - Once done, merged all the three layers 4. Adding Colors : create a new layer underneath the sketch leer and the meat based color blocked the complete hair shape with a solid color. Using a solid press now create a new layer on top of the base color earlier for shadows in highlights because slightly lighter colored than the base color and paying the highlights as shown, the word escapes layers a pass ITI, if needed.

If you need to make any minor modifications or at more details. First Haida clipping mask that will avoid any probable color difference and then work on the merged earlier.
