I am trying to make a the mustache in the picture above but can’t make the same thing. So far I have tried modeling the mustache but there is no hair and it’s just a flat mesh.

I would go with hair cards (= polygons with a few hairs mapped to them and a lot of transparency), you can find information about that here: http://wiki.polycount.com/wiki/HairTechnique This here shows the general (program independent) workflow, for the haird on top of the head, but you should be able to adapt it: tutorial from Athey Moravetz @ deviantart

You could also use the inbuilt hair system, depending on your hardware specs: https://docs.blender.org/manual/ja/dev/physics/particles/hair/index.html

    yes the first method is a nice way, perhaps you should explain in few words and screenshots – moonboots Oct 11 at 12:46
  • is this better? :) – morph3us Oct 11 at 12:56
  • Could you do this in blender? – user61431 Oct 11 at 13:00
  • is this a gerneral question as in: "is this workflow possible in blender?" or are you asking me to do these images in blender? short answers: yes and no. :) – morph3us Oct 11 at 13:02

    I downvoted this answer for a few reasons, this basically seems like a blatant rip off of someone else's tutorial. Although the basic principles may apply, it is not made in Blender, nor does it attempt to explain any differences in worflow. It is also just one big image with text, which is great for editing and can't be easily indexed, so it may not show up in future searches – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Oct 12 at 0:31

You can use hair particles.

Add a particle system and set it to hair. Choose a higher number for segments (e.g. 10).
Go to Particle Edit mode. Select some tips and scale them towards their center to create a pointy end segment. ⎈ CtrlNumpad+ select additional segments of the same strands and comb, smooth or cut them.

hair editing

Unwrap the emitter object and use Noise Textures to create color variations in the material.

node setup

Use child particles, if the hair is not dense enough.
