Rarity Hair Tutorial by countschlick Rarity Hair Tutorial by countschlick
First, I would like to thank everyone for the excellent response to my Pinkie Pie tutorial. I'm really glad you found it helpful and I love seeing everyones' efforts here, on deviantART, in the thread on Ponychan and elsewhere.

Inspired by all of the positive feedback, I decided to do it all over again and create a tutorial for Rarity! This tutorial took me a little more time to complete than I expected and is fittingly almost 29% longer. However, it is similar in many respects to my Pinkie Pie tutorial, so if you have already used that one, this tutorial should feel very similar. Rarity's hair style is a little less forgiving than Pinkie Pie's random curls, so this tutorial required a little more explaining. And puns. At least twice as many.

(:iconlunasmilesplz: The puns have been doubled!)

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

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

I loved your Pinkie Pie tutorial and just recently tried it on my own, and I think she turned out pretty good! And I just found a Rarity at a store yesterday (sadly at the place where I work they don't have all the ponies, or they have that glitter stuff in their hair instead). But now I have a regular Rarity, and I can't wait to try this out on her hair! Thanks so much for making these! (And I don't mind the puns hehe)

Wow, that looks just like in the show! You do it better than the official toy mane styles!

I have the Rainbow Power Rarity figure (Pictured here:…. Would this tutorial still work despite the fact that some of her hair is made of a tinsel-like material?

I have heard mixed things about people who style the tinsel ponies' hair, so if you want to be safe, you may want to cut out the tinsel before you style her.

I like your puns

also do you keep the ponies hidden in your room so your parents can't find them? *sorry if that sounds rude*
