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.
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.

I got my first figure today, (Twilight) I'm gonna brush her mane through, then it's time for a trim
They have Mylar strands in the hair to make it glisten. I have CE Fluttershy, and the Mylar strands in her hair simply do not respond well to boil-perming at all. They just stay...wild.
I have yet to see how they turn out but i'm confident in them. I did a little bit of my own thing for all 3 but also used your guide for rips. thanks for posting this, it really helped ! =]
thank you for this guide. I'll make her hair look like something other then a rats nest.

Thank you very much! :3
My Fluttershy is soooo cute now!
it looks so pretty! I'm gonna buy Rainbow Dash again so I can style it again. Waste of money maybe, but it will be worth it.

Still need to do Lyra, Trixie, Rainbow, Rarity, Twilight, Cheerilee, Sweetie Belle, and Apple Bloom. Pinkie, Pinkie, Derpy, Scootaloo, Fluttershy, and Applejack done, and Zecora is staying as-is.
Oh well. Lets go =3
Pinkie's and Rainbow's hair came out perfect! Rarity's is still drying but im sure it will look great once its dry!
I will use this for Flutter Shy, Twilight's and Aj's hair c:
