Below is the step by step instructions for Hair style 1

Let’s draw!
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.

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.
