How do I get this effect?

Hi!

How do I get the effect of the cloth and hair blowing in the wind like in the video?

My guess is that these are Illustrator vector layers, and the vector nodes are moved around and keyframed to get the "blowing" effect. It's really rather stiff, and unlike real hair or cloth blowing. It could also be done with a Displacement Map.

It could also be done with FreeForm, but I think the overall effect would look smoother if that had been used.

Thank you very much Joseph for taking your time to reply!

If this would be done in After Effects, which technique of doing it would you advice? I´m just a beginner.

Again, thank you very much.

I think it would be easier to use Illustrator paths (or native AE shapes) and animate them. Here's a tutorial with the basic concept:
