Hair Question

Hey, don’t ignore this just yet!

Yes, I know there are plenty of tutorials for hair, but most of those are for long, straight hair. Is there any way for Blender to produce convincing braids? It would be nice to get visual tension between the hair and the scalp.

And while we’re at it, what about short hair? Can one get waves and tight curls outside of texturing the head directly?

you would have to use lots of curve guides. it would be a lot of work, but you could probably do it. I don’t know any good tutorials off the top of my head, but I’m sure you could take the techniques from the straight hair tutorials to make curly hair
