Say hello to Locket, a beautiful twinkle-eyed pegasus pony from 1987 (I will give a closer presentation later). There’s a looot of hair in this picture, isn’t it? Lots of beautiful hair, but perhaps a little messy? I thought she deserved to get her hair fixed, a little hair makeover. I must also say that I have never ever tried to fix curly hair before, so you could say it was an experiment for me as well ;) Let’s see how she turned out.

Shampoo and conditioner. She was pretty neat in the first place, so she didn’t need a thoroughly body wash like Seashell (as we saw yesterday), but conditioner is a must when the hair feels more like one whole tangle!

Aaww, there you are, Locket! Could hardly see you under all that messy hair!

Drying off in a clean towel. Notice her iridescent eyes! ♥

Okay! How to make curly hair? I cut some straws in smaller pieces and wrapped strips of hair around them, beginning at the end of the hair, and spiraling up the straw, and left them in overnight. I was excited to see how her curls turned out, like I said, I had never done this before, so I had no idea.

Oh, boy.. Those are some pretty bad ass ringlets!! Tryin’ to look like Elvis or something, there? Naah, just kidding, Locket. Let’s use a brush and try to smooth them a little.

Wow, Locket! You look beautiful!! Doesn’t she?! :D
