Rainbow Dash Hair Tutorial by countschlick Rainbow Dash Hair Tutorial by countschlick
Sweet mother of Celestia. This tutorial is huge! This is probably because I thought Twilight's tutorial wasn't quite ridiculously huge enough, so I made a conscious and purposeful decision to make this one much larger. I'd calculate how much longer this tutorial is compared to Fluttershy's, Rarity's, and Pinkie Pie's tutorials, but then I would cry. I have a feeling that the next tutorial will be smaller, but I'm not sure if I want to break my streak of monstrosity creation.

Anyway, I cannot thank everyone enough for their support in the form of comments and questions and displays of their efforts, both on deviantART and in this ponychan thread that had the bits and bytes bombed out of it. Although I stick to intended due dates like water sticks to those fancy stain-proof pants you see in commercials that probably do not work as well in real life, your friendly comments, faves, and cries for styling assistance fuel my energies to make the magic happen.

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

Also, sorry to those of you that favourited and commented under this deviation before I had to delete and re-upload. DeviantART usually lets me edit the tutorial file so I can add the link to the deviation inside the deviation, but this time something had gone wrong.

EDIT: . . . and the sextet is complete with my tutorial for Applejack!

Can you do a tutorial on how to style those annoying glittery strands that are in most of the smaller MLP toys' hair? They always stick out at odd angles when I style the hair this way.
I've heard mixed things about how successful one can style those glittery hair strands. I would suggest just cutting them out of the rest of the hair before styling.

she..her tail loks kinda like raritys colors from some angles but nice jobb!
Ha, I loved using your tutorial for my Dash: adequate enough detail as well as extremely helpful illustrations.
Funnily enough, the look I created makes her appear more like "athletic mom" than tomboy. XD

Again, I just want to say you are awesome! that is all. 
Random question: Have you attempted any of these hair styling tutorials with the Buildabear workshop versions of the toys?
