I really want to plait Bailey.. how do you do it? I remember watching a tutorial ages ago, do you just plait them like normal then sort of roll it up and then when its in a ball put the band round it? Will have a search round Youtube.. although Bails doesn't have much mane left at the minute, will probably look silly but worth the practise!

plait the hair TIGHT, really tight right from the base, it helps if you wet the mane and dont shampoo it beforehand. you can then either fold it up and sew or band, or you can twist it from the base and it forms a ball. Rowans in those pics are twisted as they weren't folding neatly.
you want an odd number along the mane. practce makes perfect, if nothing else to fitten up your fingers so they dont cramp so bad on the day!

here ya go!
Starsky has the 'standard' 11 in his mane and 12th in his forelock. I use asda smart price hair gel to help get all the straggly bits in (it also masks the scurf!!) and I do not wash is mane beforehand otherwise it's too slippery!

Debs has 8 or 9 plaits depending on how much mane is left when I reach the bottom!
