360 Degrees Hair Catalog for Illustrators - Basic Women’s Hairstyles

360 Degrees Hair Catalog for Illustrators - Basic Women’s Hairstyles

Drawing female hairstyles in manga and illustrations can be difficult. You can use magazines for reference, but they may not always include the angles you are looking for.
This is where this manual comes in handy! It features various hairstyles shown from 12 different angles (0 to 360 degrees), each seen from the front and back, from below, and from above.

Besides normal long, medium, and short hair, the book also features arranged hairstyles such as chignons and buns, as well as twin-tails and ponytails, which are very popular in manga and anime. It will help you draw characters with more varied hairstyles!

The included DVD contains all the photos as a 3D model that you can turn around yourself to get to the angle you are looking for in a more intuitive way. The photos are free to trace for both private and commercial work.


The perfect ally for anyone looking for a good reference to draw hairstyles! Artists will want to always keep it by their side.
