Introduction: Pinkie Pie Hair Styling Tutorial

About: I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and doing show-accurate pony hair tutorials. My favorite pony would have to be Pinkie or Applejack, although Rarity comes at a close third :)

Does your Pinkie Pie look depressed, what with her hair lifeless and limp? Well, I can help you with that! Here's a tutorial that will help you make your Pinkie party-ready with a head full of curls!

Step 1: Step 1- Materials

What you will need are:

1 drinking straw

1 Pinkie Pie doll

10 Bobby pins

1 old toothbrush (Cleaned!)

Step 2: Getting Started

Next, you're going to want to cut your straw into five roughly one inch pieces. (Bonus points if you score a green straw :P)

Once you have those ready, wet Pinkie's mane and tail. Use your toothbrush to brush out any tangles or frizz.

Step 3:

Next, you need to section out the mane into four sections, the smallest one being the one closest to her forehead.

After that, slip one of the pieces of your straw into the bobby pin, thus making a pony-sized curling roller.

Step 4: Rolling Along

Next, secure the roller onto one of the sections, then tightly roll it up until it is touching her head. Secure it with another bobby pin in the straw over the rolled hair. Repeat this step with all of the sections and her tail.

Step 5: Drying

Once your Pinkie is all ready, place her in front of a fan (what I did) or you can put her under a heating lamp. This may take a while.

Step 6: The Big Reveal

Now that Pinkie's mane and tail are dry, It's time to take out the rollers. Slip them out gently, and what you should have will most likely be a lot less natural then she usually looks. Don't worry. After a little bit of pulling and tugging, her mane should look more pulled together.

Step 7: The Final Product

After a bit of work, your Pinkie might look a bit like this. When you finish, you can use a bit of hairspray. What you get will vary each time you do it, so if you do it again, it will more than likely look different from the last time you curled her hair.

Thanks for reading this Instructable! Hope you enjoy your new curly-haired Pinkie Pie!

    Well, problem is, My RD got kinda messed up and I had to throw it away...I'm getting a new one though!! It was awful. I will be doing Applejack, Scootaloo, Applebloom, Fluttershy, and MAYBE Rarity. I've TRIED Rarity several times and she just didn't turn out well.

    If your still interested in doing Rarity i am happy to help i did my 2 Rarity's hairs. Plz Email me :)

    Deviantart has a pretty useful tutorial for styling.

    Have fun!
    P.S: I style my fluttershy for amusement.

    Yeah, my Fluttershy has really soft hair and its easy to style :)

    For easier to style manes. try putting in a dab of lotion. It helps also to brush it with a clean toothbrush .

    I think i've seen that tutorial and I've used it before. I really like it!

    I can't believe you threw away a perfectly good rainbow dash

    This is a cool Instructable!
