Bad Mane Days



One of the biggest complaints with the new My Little Pony toys is that they have terrible hair. And that is the honest truth. The colours are off, and the way they look freshly unboxed...

But! There is a solution! Lots of people have figured it out on their own, but if you've never done pony hair before, it can be tough to do. So I've created an illustrated style guide for the Mane Six, the Cutie Mark Crusaders, and many of their friends, using my plastic ponies to illustrate how to get the looks you want.

*N.B.: Please stop telling me that you can't see it. It's a pdf. I know those don't work for everybody, but seriously, this would have been a massive, unworkable image. PDF is just the format that makes the most sense, so if you can't see it, hit the download button or refresh a few times. Thanks!

I'm so glad that the people from EQD liked this as much as I hoped they would! If you style your pony's hair using my guide, I'd love to see it. You don't have to share, but it might be fun...

Also, if you're here from reddit, howdy! I'm wrathlet there. I should really learn to just use the same username.

Celestia bless you, you wonderful person. I finally managed to get my hands on the Mane Six (plus some extras) and this was one of the first Google results, linked from Equestria Daily. I haven't seen a guide so in-depth outside of the vintage fandom before, and you did a fantastic job. I can't wait to get started.

I've literally never heard of thatching before, even though I've been restoring older ponies for a while now - I'd be lost without you. All my new G4s lack their proper bangs.
