GELEA - hair in more detail by Looji GELEA - hair in more detail by Looji
"all parts are on the skull" : with this i mean the beginning of the ponytail, if its a loose ponytail then That counts too of course. What im trying to say is that you dont need to act like thats the most important rule , as long as it follows the other ones its fine (only the specific line about the skull, not the part next to it)
---------------

Some people still didnt get the whole hair rule thing of Gelea
so here is a picture to explain it in more details

In Gelea there are 5 islands (plus a place under the sea)
In each of these places women wear their hair in a specific number of parts
Map Gelea by Looji
In Enetan women wear their hair in 1 part
In Twedon women divide their hair in 2 parts
In Dreehn women divide their hair in 3 parts
In Viferon women divide their hair in 4 parts
In Vifen women divide their hair in 5 parts
And in Selia women (its under the sea so only mermaids) divide their hair in 6 parts

- a womens hair is parted in the way the island does where her house is , so when she travels for a week to another island (for vacation or something) her hair is still the same
for example , if a women from Enetan goes to Viferon for a month , then she will still have her hair in one part, because she will be going back to her home

- if she for examples travels around Gelea , then her hair is parted in the way the island does where she lived last time
for example , i have a character who travels on sea , but she used to live in Dreehn , thats why her hair is always parted in three


NOTICE
You can't straight up any of the hair styles in this picture . You can take insperation though (so like a hair style with a different lenght / texture)
but of course , you can also experiment on your own

I cant explain it any more clear then this
If you still don't understand the hair styles and want to make a character for Gelea then i suggest making that character in Enetan and let her wear her hair down
Women need to follow this hair rule so you cant make a female character from Vifen with 2 pigtails or something

This is for the group

If a women moves permanently to a different Island would she change her hair? Or would she just keep it the same?

I have one question, how do these apply to nymphs. I believe Nadi has her hair in a ponytail from memory but are other nymphs able to do this like wind or rock nymphs.

I imagine there being lazy girls both in and out of Galea who hate having to do their hair in the morning. Depending on their personalities, some may take way too long to do their hair due to a lack of motivation while others are content to just go out in really messily done buns and ponytails and not care what other people will think.

how many parts would my OC's hairstyle count as? ;w;
I'm unsure, whether or not the two strands of hair behind her ears count as parts ^^"

is it behind her ears because she placed it like that (like they can fall in front of her ears easily) or is it part of the back of her head ?

it's a part of the back of her head I'd say then!

its really hard to say if it will count as one part or two , ,since theyre loose parts, so they can easily become one part in a different position , you know xD but i'd say , three parts then
she looks adorable btw ~

:iconwigglypoodles:
Wigglypoodles Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
three parts it is then! 
it can be hard to tell, hence why I came to ask you xD 
But thank you ;;O;;
she's my first successful Gelea OC, so it means a lot to hear that from you ;;;;;

If I had a hairstyle where there are three minibraids coming together with the rest of the hair to form a ponytail, would that be four parts?
Reply

so if a women lived in different islands all the time, her hair would be parted in the style of the previous island she lived in??

A woman has the hairstyle of the Island her home is. If she's just visiting an Island, she keeps her own hairstyle, if she moves to an Island she changes her hair

If I were a woman in Viferon, would a hairstyle  where there are two braids coming together into a braid and the ends hanging out be four or five parts?
Reply
:iconlooji:
Looji Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2016   Digital Artist
Do you mean this ?
Braids by Looji
because that will count as two parts , a part can't make a new part
or did you mean something else ^^ ?

Wait, I think I got it. It would probably be five parts, if I'm correct.

How would minibraids count, parts wise? E.g. if a human woman in Enetan wore her hair like this: s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/2… There's way more than 6 braids there (understatement of the decade), but they're all tied up into one knot bun? Just wondering for future reference if I end up making a character for the group. :D Wanted to know if these could be applicable or not.

A mini braid counts as a part too. So like 5 braids that make a bun is still 5 parts ^^

Oh, I actually meant in general, because when I'm talking minibraids, I mean braids that could easily number close to 100 just on one person. ^^; Considering the limit is 6 divisions of hair, I seriously doubt that'd fly, at least for a self-identifying female character. I might make a boy with those though...... Hmmm.....
