Approximately 12 inches long and as thick as a pencil at the thinnest part of the hair.
Tail hair is preferred but if you only have mane hair available I can use this. please note bracelets made using mane hair may be of lower quality as mane hair is not as strong as tail hair.
DO I NEED TO WASH THE HAIR? Unless hair is very dirty there is no need to wash the hair. It is a personal preference whether you want to wash the hair or not. Most customers chose not to wash it. In many cases such as memorial use you like to keep the smell of the horse as a reminder.
I do offer a hair washing service for £1 extra or you can wash prior to posting to me if preferred.
To take the hair from the horse without leaving scissor marks, it is best to cut hair from the underside of the doc.
please gather hair and secure one end with a plaiting band/ elastic band or hair bobble.
Requirements for the Pony tales keepsakes/keyring.
Hair can be mane or tail hair. I personally prefer mane hair for these but both look great. Any length is fine to use.
Option to have mane hair natural where I don't cut the end straight and it hangs like it would on your horse. Or I can cut straight so it looks tidy. If no preference started I cut straight.
If you cut the hair from the underside of the mane the missing hair will be less noticeable or as above take from under the doc if tail hair. Please add plaiting band or secure hair at one end.
For Bag charm/ loop key fobs please see requirements for bracelets. Tail hair preferred.
Dandy brush charm and keyring hair requirements. These are best made using tail hair to get the dandy brush effect. This design can be made using a handful of hair.
