I have come up with six simple steps for straightening hair that I am going to use in my informational graphic.
How to Straighten Hair:
Step 1: Brush hair
Step 2: Apply heat protectant
Step 3: Section off bottom part of hair
Step 4: Straighten in small sections
Step 5: Release top part of hair
Step 6: Straighten the rest in small sections
Over the last week I have been seeking inspiration for my assignment. I have been watching different hair style tutorials on YouTube. I noticed quite a few of the tutorials have very little steps/instructions. With these tutorials in mind I have decided that I will try to keep to a minimal amount of steps/instructions in my informational graphic. While some tutorials have very few steps others have quite a lot, this is usually because the people in the videos decide to include washing and blow drying hair as part of the process. I have decided not to include washing or blow drying in my informational graphic. By having to many steps my graphic could be at risk of becoming too busy and overwhelming.
Here are some of the tutorials that I have watched:
Here are two hair related info graphics that I have found. I really like the simplicity of them and hope that I will be able to achieve a similar type of simple look. I also think the colour schemes are really pretty.
So, i’m 94% sure that the process I want to illustrate in my informational graphic is the process of straightening ones hair. I think it will be fun to illustrate and will look really nice if I get it right. I’m going to start practicing creating faces and other shapes on Illustrator now. Until I have made something to show, enjoy this random picture of a hair straighter.
