Every good process has guidelines. To ensure that my rooting looks just like hair growing out of the baby's scalp, I'm happy to invest a day in planning out where these little hairs are going to go.
I carefully plot out the hair growth pattern from crown to hairline. A truly realistic baby should have at least one swirl at the crown. Lightly painting that swirl helps me angle each hair in the direction that it naturally grows.
At the same time, I paint the hairline. Even mohair is not as fine as the tiny baby hairs and peach fuzz on the baby's forehead. So I paint those hairs for a lifelike look. They are a little hard to see right now, but I'll go back and darken them as needed once the rooting is done.
