Ok so I decided after seeing a couple of tutorials to try and generate hair for René.
(I did find a pretty cool script that would help immensely however I can't get it to find the right path directory at the moment, hopefully someone can help me with that.) Until then I did it the slower way.
It doesn't look as great as the tutorial (due to its quality) I saw however as its my first attempt I'm quite excited.
Originally he is to have one real hair follicle which would be the strand at the front of his face.
With this experiment I have a slightly better understanding of the hair dynamics.
