Sweet and Elite by Cheri-Bomb Sweet and Elite by Cheri-Bomb
A while back, my best friend got me a Rarity brushable for my birthday, but I already had one! So instead of just restyling her mane again, I decided to have a go at making my favourite of Rarity's various outfits; her "artsy" one from Sweet & Elite.

Now, I myself have hair that comes down to just an inch above my butt. I also have the styling skills of a blind ape. Neither of those make for easy hair styling.

But it's still easier than styling this pony hair. I tried every tip I could scrounge off the internet, but it just wouldn't work exactly how I wanted it. Maybe I just got a bum pony :stare:

So anyway, I got it straight enough, and sorta wavy, but it's not 100% show accurate. Cartoon hair is very hard to recreate for real, especially Rarity's. I just hope I can do her justice, she's so beautiful :love:

So sweet!! Did you try dampening the hair and leaving braids in overnight? when you take them out it should be wavy. She looks great like this too though. (Tempted to get another Rarity now....)

I never actually thought of using braids! I tried wetting the mane and adding straws, but it didn't work very well :shrug:

You totally should! You can never have enough Raritys (Rarities? O.o) x3

Oh, wow! This is amazing!

Meh, so what if her hair isn't accurate? She's one of a kind and she's yours, that's all that matters ^_^ Still think she looks beautiful, though!

Welcome ^_^ That's exactly how I felt when fixing my own ponies' hair. They're not as accurate as some of the ones I've seen, but they're cute anyway. I'm really pleased with them :)

Ooh you customise ponies too? I just had to check them out after you said that!

I particularly like your Fluttershy one! :D

They all sat drying overnight with curlers in their hair or hairbands around their manes. It was quite entertaining :lol: Twilight seriously looked like she had been kidnapped!

Thanks! My fave is my Applejack - I really think she came out awesome ^_^

Haha, that must've been a great sight! :lol:

Ooh yes, I loved her hat too!
And I'm downright envious of the tail on your Rarity, how did you get it so perfect!?

:iconbeckyloves-x:
BeckyLoves-x Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Student
Yeah, it was ^_^

I just wrapped Rarity's tail around a hair curler and dipped it in boiling water, then left it to dry overnight, next to kidnapped twilight :lmao:

Oh, so simple! I used straws for mine's tail (I don't think I even have curlers in the house!) so maybe that's why the curls came out smaller x3

Yeah, this one took a few days to get right! Pony hair always seems to be trouble to deal with, it never likes to stay put x3

I found wetting the hair and holding it in place to be the most effective. That, and a bit of hair spray to hold shape :)

I'm not super keen on the brushables either, they don't look a whole lot like the actual ponies D:
