What I used were:-
1) Pencil
2) Eraser
3) Drawing Paper (You can use ordinary paper too)

Step 2: Drawing the Base Frame

Draw a large T.
Now, connect the two ends of the T with it's bottom end, and draw a semi-circle over it, such that it resembles an ice-cream cone.

Step 3: Defining the Frame

Draw two lines on each side to represent the jaw-bones. 
Also, draw the ears as simple half circles.
Draw the neck and upper shoulder as a reference.

Step 4: Elaborating the Lines

Once you are done with the face and features, rub out the rough lines.
Draw the hair. You can choose whatever style you wish. I have chosen a simple cut here, somewhat Justin Bieber-like :)
Shade the drawing as you wish.
