Fluttershy Hair Tutorial by countschlick Fluttershy Hair Tutorial by countschlick

First off, I'd like to apologize for the length of this tutorial. It is just over twice as long as the Pinkie Pie one. (~1.5 times longer than my Rarity tutorial.) Although it is a lot longer, I think the process of styling Fluttershy is easier than styling Rarity or Pinkie Pie due to the lack of curling. However, the process is more complicated, so I felt it was necessary to add additional instruction to maximize clarity while sacrificing brevity. I asked myself whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of an ambiguous tutorial or to take arms against a sea of obscurity, and by opposing them: tolerate a "tl;dr" or two, and ultimately figured I'd go for wordy and picture-y and hope for the best.

Anyway, I'd like to thank everyone again for your comments and questions regarding my other tutorials. I'm always happy to see the results of other people's styling both here, on deviantART, and in the ponychan thread.

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

UPDATE: I also have Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Applejack tutorials as well, for those that are interested.

OBLIGATORY DD EDIT: SWEET AUNT JEMIMA! A DD! I have only ever dreamed of this happening. MY HEAD ASPLODE!

In addition to the epic show-accuracy of the hair, you're also a hilarious person!

Trying this with Fluttershy and Rarity now; we bought the bagged ponies and the hair seems a bit short. They were 2.99 as opposed to the regular boxed ones at 5.99. Example of new bagged ponies at Target

I followed your tutorial for Twilight and she turned out great... However, Twilight and Rarity are the only ones I currently have who don't have tinsel hair. Should I even try to style tinsel hair or spare myself the pain and suffering?

Eh, I've seen moderate success styling tinsel hair, but if it were me, I would probably cut out the tinsel before styling. I think there is about one tinsel strand per hair plug, so 20 to 30 in total, so it isn't as laborious a job as it seems.

Just wanted to drop you a message to thank you for this guide. I just finished working on my Fluttershy figure's hair today and letting it settle in place as I type this. I've been wanting to fix her look for sometime now, and this guide was very helpful in not only walking me through the procedure, but motivating me as well. Thank you again.
