Today I have decided to create a hair shading tutorial!
Let's get on with it!
Choose your color scheme, I chose a mix of reds, purples, and pinks.
Fill all sides of the head with your darkest color, and if you want the end result to be a certain color, choose the color that is the farthest on the color wheel from your desired end result.

Add your second darkest color in the spaces I colored. When choosing colors, move your mouse along the wheel until you reach your end desired color, choosing colors in between your starter and finisher.

Once again, add your next lightest color in the spaces provided.

Repeat Step Three with the lightest color in the empty middle spaces.

Once this is completed, repeat on the other two sides of the head, leaving the top, bottom, and front alone. When I did this, I also noticed that the darkest color was a little too red, so I altered it to a bit more purple.

This is the top of the head. Recreate the pattern provided, and fill the center with the second lightest.

This is now the front of the head, do no shading on the hair, however, the face needs to have the same color wheel pattern, go from a more pinkish-red tone to a beige.

For the eyes, use the same color as the darkest color of the hair as the top lashes, and first color.

Next, use a grey tone for the part right next to the hairline on the top. You also want to get a color that is an off-white, but make sure that it relates back to the hair colors. Also, get a brighter and more vibrant version of the hair tone for the bottom eye.

For the skin tone, take your beige color and put it in the spots provided.

Finally, for the skin, add a highlight with pure white right next to the top eye piece.

For the bottom of the head, just repeat the pattern.

For the bangs, repeat this pattern on the front of the hair. Of course, there are many ways to make the bangs, but for this skin, I decided to make this one.

Shade with the second lightest in the areas provided.

Repeat in the two spaces with the lightest color.

And you are done!
