You can draw the hair however you’d like to for your character. If you want to make it more realistic, maybe add a few curls or stray hairs.
Come up with a story first. Then, you’ll need the ability to draw out that story. If you need any more help, you can go to any book store and find manga to give you a look on how a good story is written out.
Or, borrow some manga from your library. Keep practicing, as it can take time to get all the pieces sorted.
Draw the basic outline of the face and the ears. The ears should be within the middle line for the eyes up to the line for the mouth.
Add the shape of the girl such as the face, the arms, neck and body shape.
When drawing a full body pose, pay attention to the overall of your drawing. Don’t rush into the details of a specific part early on. If needed, sketch a general shape or blob of your vision in the beginning to help guide your composition.
Not every eye has to look like it has like 100 stars! Sometimes males have wider hips than most, for the right effect you have to make sure that the waist isn’t too curved or he might look like a girl.
Instead of drawing really dark lines, start with very light lines. Sketch it out at first, and then you can make them darker when you finish. Don’t go too overboard with the chin, as it won’t look right.
When drawing hair, remember that hair doesn’t always hug the skull. Try to make it look fluffy by having it extend over the sides of the face. Also, don’t try to draw every single strand; basic outlines or “clumps” works better.
Lastly, consider making the hair appear more dynamic by drawing it blowing slightly to one side.

Add the guidelines face and body curve. For the body curve guideline, draw a triangle for the upper body shape and a semi circle for the hips.
It probably won’t look great because you don’t want anything else covering the drawing, but if it’s the only paper you have, then use it.
How can you make the eyes actually look like anime, not just cartoon?
