I already have a front view face drawn so that I can just focus on drawing hair this lesson. This lesson will focus on long wavy hair with bangs. The hair has typical soft looking signature manga-spikes that flow downward nicely. Without further ado, I will begin the step by step tutorial! I picked a drawing that was as easy and simple as possible to learn. Looks like this will be another quick and easy tutorial!

Below is the step by step instructions for Hair style 1
1) I started with simple geometric shapes (but imagine it has geometrical form and depth). We begin with three big simple shapes that will become the bangs.
2) I then drew 2 more big simple shapes to illustrate the long fluffy hair that will flow downward to both sides of her shoulders.
3) Since I already have simple shapes as a base, I can now easily go in and draw details over the established big shapes.
Drawing hair tip #1: For the spiky manga hair shapes, draw big then small or wide then thin or short and long. Do not make your hair spikes all even or the same shape, they will look strange. It is more natural looking with uneven hair clumps.
Drawing hair tip #2: Start with bigger shapes to establish the overall look. Once you have the rough base as a foundation, it will make your drawing a lot easier when it comes time to add details.
