Create Incredible Looking Hair Effects with Particles in Blender - Part 1

In this multi-part, video tutorial about Blender's Hair Particles System, we will learn some very useful options to use when trying to create cool or convincing hair effects. We will also add colour to the hair, light the scene, add a few compositing nodes, and finally set the particle system as a softbody so we can animate it.

We'll start this second day by shading our hair, then we'll add a simple lighting rig and a background image. Next we'll move on to adding a few compositing nodes, and finally, we'll activate soft body physics for our particle system and add a wind field to interact with the hair.
