how to make hair?

No sorry guys, I am not talking about actual strands of hair, I already know how to do that. But anime hair, here is the head I modeled and textured, but I don’t know how to make the hair. This guy below is what I want for the hair.


So polygon hair?

I’m guessing for that character it’s not much more then “make a basic cap for the head, give it some depth, extrude some bits out to make the spiky bits”. (Admittedly I don’t have a whole lot of experience doing poly-hair :P)

You could even (dynamic topology) sculpt it if you wanted to, that may yield easier results. The snake hook brush would be particularly handy for that. Then use the decimate modifier after you’re done to make it low-poly again.
