I have a hair object, and I wonder how it was done.

enter image description here

Is this hair composed by planes? And if yes, are they double-sided? To me it looks double-sided because it is also visible from the other side.

I have also uploaded the project here if somebody needs to take a closer look.

Thank you very much!

  • $\begingroup$ By default blender shows the backsides of single-sided faces. To make faces double sided, enable Double Sided in Properties > Object Data (see blender.stackexchange.com/q/9049/599). $\endgroup$

No they are not double sided. You can check this by going to the N menu and checking Backface Culling under Shading options.

  • $\begingroup$ So you mean that these are just simple single-sided planes? You did not really refer to whether these are planes or not. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Is the same material applied and are they UV unwrapped? $\endgroup$
