Maybe you can start using paintFX and from there move on.

Can i use it in 3d max ? Is it a plugin ?? Never heard of it. Thank you for your help

Sorry, paintFX is a tool in Maya.
In Max ... maybe you can draw some sort of lines, and attach to those lines the little spheres.

if you were using cinema 4d, i would say use splines then cloner spheres along those lines

You could model all of the strands straight out, then use cloth sim to pull them into shape.
