Bald Effect?

I’m trying to create a bald character and found I can adjust the translation (position) and scale of a hair style to submerge the top part into the skull.  The effect is just a ring of hair around the ears and back.  So far so good, but for some reason the hair snaps back over the whole head when I render or make other adjustments to the character (even just rotating around it.)  It’s like the hair is reloading and snapping back to the whole scalp.  Any tips on making a bald character?

Which software are you using and which figure?


Sounds like you want an old guy’s almost there hair something like what Patrick Stewart has. (Not the young Patrick but the more recent version)

 


I know someone has made a hairstyle like that or I think one has. Not sure for which figure or where it is.

Thanks for the pointers.  I’m on Daz…thus posting in the Daz forum…and using Genesis.  I downloaded that Mitch hair and it’s not bad.  I was using Timeless as there are a variety of colors for it.  To get my Picard effect, I need grey hair.  Can you apply a color for one hair to another?  I haven’t found a way to make that work.
