Summary We develop or enhance hair modelling and rendering techniques to produce three different forms of hair commonly found in African hairstyles. The forms of hair are natural curly hair, straightened hair, and braids or twists of hair.

We use an implicit model, implemented as a series of textured layers to represent curly hair. Straightened hair is represented explicitly, and modelled by defining and replicating a few control hairs. Braids and twists are implemented as textured generalized cylinders.

A synthesis of existing hair illumination models is used as a basis for an African hair illumination model. Parameter values to match African hair characteristics are discussed.

A number of complete African hairstyles are shown, demonstrating that the techniques can be used to model and render African hair successfully.
