The Art of Hair Design

hair design encompasses cutting, styling, and shampooing of hair as well as using wigs or hairpieces if necessary – it can be an extremely rewarding career path. Becoming a hair stylist typically involves attending a cosmetology or hair design school and meeting state licensing requirements, in addition to completing practice hours in a salon setting.


hair design, like all forms of art, boils down to its form. The design consists of points and lines which may be straight or curved as they travel along horizontal, vertical, diagonal, or any other axes – alter any one element, and you alter its form!

Form in the hair industry refers to any pattern or progression of color, such as light to dark gradients, cool-warm tones, etc. Additionally, zonal patterns could run along the strands.


hair texture allows designers to craft an array of designs that vary in shape, size, and color. Designs may include zonal patterns or gradients that alternate colors – possibly moving from light to dark hues or cool to warm tones.

Based on your hair texture, different material types could be used to produce it – coarse or fine hair can have different impacts on how it appears and behaves. This will have an impactful impact on both how it looks and its behavior.

Utilizing SD’s nodes, users can quickly modify strands of their desired hairstyle and instantly preview it on their character in real-time, which allows them to identify any potential problems with their shader or 2D work.
