~MNN's Yarn Perfume Puff Rehair Tutorial~[Picture Heavy]
« on: July 14, 2014, 09:42:05 PM »
Hey lovelies! Recently, I have been receiving many questions about how I do my perfume puff rehairs and have finally decided to sit down and make a tutorial for you all! The pictures I am using were taken over a year ago, so please bear with me! (Ack, my fingernails look awful!) Haha And feel free to ask any questions. I really hope you find this helpful!

~Yarn Perfume Puff Rehair Tutorial~

Step One

First thing is to find your bait! :) I chose this poor Parasol. :<

Here is what my tool looks like that I use to pull out their hair.

Step Two
Pick your yarn colors!
This was the hardest, most time consuming part of learning how to do these rehairs. I cannot tell all of you how many times I bought and returned yarn because it didn't work. I tried so many brands, and finally figured out the trick! Any kind of bulky yarn works. I find my yarn in so many different places: Walmart, Michaels, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby. 100% Acrylic works the best, however you can use some as long at the percentage of acrylic to real wool is much higher. ;) However, I would stick to 100% at all times if possible.

I chose to give her hair a fade effect :)

Step Three
Time to start the rehairing process!

As these pictures are so old, I have since learned that you don't have to cut your yarn this long. You can if you want, however that will just be more fluff left over when you brush it out :)

Now you will need to unravel the yarn into its individual pieces. This one particular brand has 4. Each one varies :)

I load my tool by looping the yarn over my fingers and push it into the eye with my nail. Make sure all of the yarn is in there :)

Rehairing with yarn can be a tad tricky when you first start. You have to be careful to not split the head by putting too much yarn in! One strand per plug is what I do. When you start getting to plugs that are really close together, skip a plug in between each one. Yarn is very forgiving and you won't be able to see the skipped plug so no worries :)

Now youjust pop the yarn strand into the plug ^.^

This is what they will look like when you finish  ;) Also, I will admit I do not glue my PP rehairs as the yarn gets so thick there is no need! However, if you want to glue it you can ^^

Step Four
Now for the fun part, brushing it out! ;D
This was another thing I had problems with at the beginning. I didn't know how much of the yarn was going to come out, and at first it will look really scary! But no worries :)

For this tutorial, I used a slick brush, however a comb works just fine as well! Be sure to comb out the strands in sections and not all at once. ^^

Start from the bottom and work your way up to the roots :satisfied:

And here is what one section looks like brushed out! And how much of the yarn came out. As you can see it's a lot! Don't be scared to get in there and brush it all out! The fibers rooted into the head with the tool won't be going anywhere no matter how much you brush it  ^.^

Brush brush brush :bateyes:

And here she is all brushed out next to all of the yarn that came out to give you an idea of how much will brush out x3 I like to go over the hair and brush it all out again once I get all of the excess off to make it look smooth :)

Step Five

Now for the tail :) Everything here is exactly the same ^^

I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it helps those of you who want to make your own! I have never made a tutorial before so I really hope it was okay.  ^^; Please feel free to message me if you have anymore questions! I would love to see any perfume puffed ponies you guys make from the help of this tutorial :D

Thanks so much for this tutorial. I've made a Cotton Candy but I was too scared to brush it out properly! Will get a better brush and go for it soon :)

I started my PP rehair last night… ^_^

A WHOLE chunk of yarn came out and I freaked. I promptly put her down and will take her back up again today, most likely. Lol.
