The hair modeling problem consists of three major parts known as the hair generation, attachment and finer property handling. When we exclusively consider hair attachment techniques we can observe that most of the hair simulations’ naturalism can be adjusted by the attachment technique used. But most of the techniques available today lack the ability to perceive the natural phenomenon of hair attachment which to grow from inside. This paper proposes a novel approach to virtual hair attachment by using a more natural approach like making the hair strand originate from inside the human head. This technique can be regarded as a pioneer in hybrid hair shape modeling techniques as this addresses both the shape modeling and the attachment problem.
