I usually give ponies with long hair a running braid. It's basically just a French braid for horses.

I like to curl hair. Also barrettes help to keep manes in control. Hair-do and great hair ponies have longer than standard hair as well.

Although neither of them have really long tails, which helps. I think Hairdo ponies just have thicker hair, I'm not sure if it's actually longer than other ponies from that time period? Maybe a little bit...?

Edit: Looking at the photos, yeah. It's longer ;)

Great Hair ones have mad hair. My Highlights' mane hangs over the front of the shelf in the cupboard...sometimes I think she's more hair than pony ><. Because it's crimped, it's really hard to keep it nice and neat...At one point I had it split into bunches but not now. But I don't really feel I can braid or curl it because the crimp will go, so I'm a bit at a loss with her.

The advantage with the hairdo ponies is that you can use their twisty thing to put their hair in a high ponytail and that keeps it out of the way, and it also means they look less like they have alien tentacles ;)

Got to be careful with Sparklesnap though - BACON PONY

I had to Google that one too (wasn't familiar with Sparklesnap. In fact, I wouldn't have an idea that this is a pony name if it didn't come up here :P ), but once I saw pictures of her I immediately understood  :lol:

NightGliderSA, your Stripes looks lovely! Did you do her hairstyling with bobby pins and straws? My long-dragging-on project to restore a messy-haired Stripes has finally reached the stage where her hair is straight, with the colours separated, but I haven't yet made up my strength to proceed to styling. I highly prefer how your Stripes' lower-starting and smaller-towards-the-ends curls look compared to the very even curls most straw-styled ponies have.

Sparklesnap is rather a bacon pony. But I'm not sure that requires extra care with the hair? XD.

Thank you! I don't actually use what one might call conventional tools most of the time. So while I do have curlers I didn't use them for Stripes. For her I used old twisty crayons (which no longer have crayons in them) and kleenex. I didn't take a photo of her spa day, but here is one of Daffidaisy having the same 'treatment'

It's a pleasure!

Though it is sometimes hard to persuade non-pony people that such a photo is a HAPPY one (especially if you have their heads off) and that you are HELPING the ponies. It looks exactly as Taffeta said: extremely Torture Chamber-ish (MoooHaHAAAAA!)  ;)

For me it depends on the pony. G1s, I generally try to keep it original. G2s, I generally go with the classic leg wrap, and with G3s and G4s I tend to braid or wrap into buns, because they had TERRIBLE box hair (with the exception of precious gem), so there was nothing to preserve, so whatever looks best for display and to keep it tidy if they are in storage.
