A pen to help draw hair that is wavy or curly. It has multiple strands so the twists look more voluminous and natural. I think it's especially fun for princess (ringlet) curls.

I made it for myself so I'm not sure how easy it is to use, but I hope some find it useful!

To use this pen, you have to draw the hair in a wiggly, twisting manner yourself. It may take a little practice but it means you can choose to draw the curls looser or tighter as you please.
In the demonstration above, I have the layer's 'Border effect' turned on to create the outline. If you draw using a white pen colour and black border, you can use 'Edit' → 'Convert brightness to opacity' to create line art.

There are two types, a pen with 2 strands and a pen with 3 strands. I like to combine them for variety.

Process example:
① Use the hair pens to draw curly hair
② Add some single strands with a normal pen to look more natural
③ Create the outline with Layer Property → Border effect
④ Add details like inner lines, highlights, etc.

If the strands look too repetitive, you can rotate or flip the canvas while you draw to capture different angles of the pen.
