Applejack Hair Tutorial by countschlick Applejack Hair Tutorial by countschlick
How'dya like them apples? It's done! For reals! I'll never try so hard, and fail, to turn the phrase "Element of Honesty" into a pun ever again! (Hopefully.)

This completes my styling guides for the Mane Six. Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle, and Rainbow Dash have tutorials as well, if you are interested.

Also, I managed to finally break my streak of making each tutorial longer than the last! This one is shorter than both RD's and Twilight's. Fist pump, indeed.

Anyway, thanks again to everyone who has waited so patiently for my tutorials, and thanks to those that haven't. You may think your cries for styling advice have been muted by the trillions of light-years of inter-tubes connecting us, but they echo throughout my mind like a horde of shrieking harpies, pushing me forward. Also, all of the delightful comments and images of your work motivate me as well. I work best with both a carrot dangling from the end of a stick in front of me and a whip at my back.

And, of course, My Little Pony, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Applejack, and the Hasbro toys are all owned by Hasbro.

Can you do one of Derpy or the CMC?
countschlick Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2014
Well, Derpy's hair is very similar to Dash's, so you could probably use her tutorial in a pinch if you needed to. As for the CMCs, if I make more tutorials, I plan on setting up a poll to let people decide who will be styled next. The CMCs would definitely be on that poll.

Question, I got a plushie Applejack today, with brushable hair (The Beanie Baby ones), could I do a similar thing with her? Probably not as easily, since the dolls give you a solid surface to hold things against, but still? :S
countschlick Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2014

I think so. The Beanie Baby (BB) ponies seem to have enough hair to do this to them. Like you mentioned, the fact that the BB ponies are squishy will make the process more difficult. Also, it is probably best if you can avoid getting your BBs really wet, but I don't think a little bit of water will hurt them much.

I did it this morning, I think it went okay :D

The only think that needed anything drastic was the forelock, it was really curly :)

Thanks anyways though :D
