📢Update log: 3D Hair Brush 4.0 is released, hair presets have been added with 34 hair styles for you to choose from.
Detailed info can be fund on VFX Grace.
3D Hair Brush is a powerful hair tool, including 3D brushes with Pie Menu, Use Radius Curve, Use Diameter Random, and Hair Modifier.
3D brushes can distinguish complex muscle surfaces of models and provide artists with a wonderful experience of grooming hairstyles in Blender; With multiple well-designed brushes presets, it gives efficient solutions to making varying hairstyles;
Using Radius Curve makes it convenient for us to control hair shape;
Using Diameter Random makes it possible to randomize the thickness of hair in just one particle system.
Modifier gives us an opportunity to add modifiers layer by layer until we get a good result and it doesn't destroy any hair shape we created before.
Windows 10: Blender 2.93, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3

Click Edit -> Preferences -> Add-ons -> Install, select the Zip file, and hit Install Add-on.
When a guide’s second point from the root is in the brush area, 3D brushes can work normally.
When Preserve Root Length is unchecked, guides can be moved along the surface of geometries. If you want to move the guides away from the surface, you can select the default Comb brush.
Use Roughness: It works the same as the Roughness in the Children.
Axes Locking: Disable the noise on one or more axes as per the locked axes.
It only modifies the orientation of the guides, keeping the shapes of the guides.
Clone Source: Pick the source of the guides to be cloned.
Clone Draw: Clone the guides at the position where this brush stays.
Rotation angle: The rotation angle of the clone brush which can also be achieved with shortcut—CTRL + MOUSE WHEEL
It only works with Use 3D Brush enabled.
It works only when the transforms, including location, rotation, and scale, are applied.
It works only when location and rotation are both set to 0, and scale is set to 1 in Delta Transform.
Group the guides by different colors.
The color groups can be edited.
Only Active: When enabled, only the colors of the active particle system will be displayed; when disabled, the colors of all the particle systems will be displayed.
Use Color Brush: Enable/Disable the colors.
The following steps are required before using it.
It takes care of setting random thickness for the hair in one particle system.
Enable it, there are 3 additional parameters.
Threshold: It ranges from -1 to 1, determining the amount of hair that is affected by Use Diameter Random. When it’s set to 0, all hair will be of random thickness, that is, all will be affected.
Modifier is Children based. And there are 3 common modifiers—Length, Clump, and Noise.
Note: Please use the ABC Export (File -> Export -> Alembic HairModifier(.abc) ) when the works created by the Modifier need to be exported.
Note: To ensure the accuracy of it, the texture needs to be in the Non-color color space, like Raw. Besides, unwrapped UV is required.
Note: the steps of hair won’t be reduced.
Tip: The Magnitude is gradually getting larger from 0 to 1 from roots to tips.
Tip: It can be controlled by a curve. When the curve is disabled, it’s linearly getting larger from 0 to 1 from roots to tips.
Note: The integer is needed.
Density: The larger it is, the more but finer the clumps will be.

CheckToolBox highlights the information of models (poles, triangles, N-gons, etc.) in real time through shading colors of models in Edit Modes. With only one-click, the project overview is displayed, for instance object count, double count, isolated element count, etc.
Particle_Pie_Menu is a handy add-on for hair editing. With all options in the pie menus, you can easily edit the particle systems in any mode, greatly improving your productivity. In Object Mode, you can change the hair display color, modify the order of the particle systems and the settings, etc.
