Here is 4 different .blends from a tutorial I created for Hair on characters in blender. The tutorial can be found here


All 4 files use the same head, but shows different hair style. The tutorial itself is 1hr long but a lot of information are covered.

    Jeannot, what I have been trying to find out is the best way to create a loosely hanging pony tail. Can you suggest a method? It seems to be one of the hardest Hair tasks.

    That could be done a couple of ways. The 1st easiest might be a simple deform. I wouldn't try using dynamics though. 2nd would be multiple lattices deforming the hair at the end into a ponytail shape. 3rd would be trying to use curve guides, hooks then proxy meshes with hinge contstraints. The 3rd one is probably not recommended since the amount of work would exceed the enjoyment of the result.

    Personally you could always have a regular hairstyle meet at the bun , knot or whatever its called and inside would be a circle hidden (uncheck emitter) with filled faces providing the hair for the ponytail hanging down. Then you could possible make a bone that would keep it pinned to the head and allow the ponytail to use dynamics with collision enabled. Then... it would hang low.

    Deadparrot: Very good question, I think I know how I could go about faking it. I will run some tests and make a follow up tutorial if my theory is correct.

    Happy Blending :)
