Sorry my notes are ugly - graphic design slows me down and this coffee buzz will only last so long. Further on hair - Strips to make Tufts to Bend around the head with lattice deformer.
These strips were made from GMH2 plugin but you can also make them in vector or render from 3d.
As you can see the first pass is thin and unrefined. But the tufts are in place and can be duplicated and manipulated for thickness.
For this scalp since it's so covered up I rendered the tufts in toolbag and placed them around. For other styles you'd want to be more careful and have a hairline etc.
After I get this done I'll show the finishing tips like vertex normal transfer.
