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 never used bobby pins before in my life, but whenever I do some strands or the whole hair just seems to fall out. And I'm afraid that it would happen if I attempt this tutorial, how did manage to keep the straw on the front mane intact? Cause it almost looked like you just simply stuck them in the straw and rest was... Dare I say... Magic?

Yeah, that's the magic of sticking several pictures right next to each other without indicating the grotesque amount of time taken between taking each one. Someone who commented under this tutorial (or perhaps Pinkie's) whose mother was a hair dresser suggested wetting little pieces of tissue paper and using them like tape to stick the ends of the pony's hair to the straws, making it easier to roll up. I haven't tried it myself, but I'm pretty sure it would make things much easier.

That's an interesting fact that you shared and is very useful, but I was talking about how you stuck the pins in the front mane. Did you just add one extra pin each stop? Or did you stuck multiple pins a the very end?

Oh, sorry. I used pins at the beginning of the curling, at the end, and another near the beginning to get the curling started off well. If you use the tissue paper technique, however, I believe you could avoid using one or two of the beginning pins.

So exactly how many pins did you use in this tutorial for her front mane for both start and end?

I believe I used two pins to start curling the front part of her mane, then one at the end to keep the curl in place. There was also one more pin placed at the roots of her mane to keep the hair (composed of two rows running down the length of her neck) as one ribbon, making it easier to curl. In total, that makes 4 pins on the front section of her mane.
