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.

awesome tutorial :3, I was wondering- do you think these instructions would work on the plushie's you can get that have actual hair or not? 
countschlick Featured By Owner 1 day ago
Maybe. I find that the plushies seem to have less hair, so you won't get the same volume you get here. However, I would venture that you can replicate the style with moderate success.

I did it and soon it got all messed up
is their any way to keep it neat
countschlick Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2014
If it is neat to begin with, the best you can do to keep the hair neat is by disturbing it as little as possible. Unfortunately, the easiest way to make the hair neat again is to brush out the hair in hot water and style it again.

Any ideas or tips for how to style the TY beanie baby versions?
countschlick Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014
I think you can use many of the steps specified here on the TY Beanie Babies. There are two things to note, however: 1) There is not as much hair on the Beanie Babies, so do not expect the same kind of volume you get with the figures I styled. 2) Be careful with the water. I think Beanie Babies are okay getting a little wet, but I wouldn't want to soak them and risk their innards getting moldy.

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!
