My Little Pony Hair Color Chart

       In the United States, the UK, and most of Europe, there were around thirty different colors of pony hair over the years, as well as special color-changing hair for the Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies. Metallic tinsel and strands of iridescent plastic were also used in pony hair. Scroll down for pictures and information on the different hair colors and types. Note that this chart does not currently include pony hair from Greece, Argentina, Brazil, and other non-European countries where hair colors varied. Check back for updates in the future.

This color of pink was used only for a few European exclusive ponies; it was never used for any ponies sold in the US. In shade it is very similar to Light Pink, but has a different texture, heavier, smoother, and generally very straight, and although long exposure to light will cause it to fade somewhat, it does not have the tendency of Light Pink hair to bleach completely to white.

Color-Changing Hair, first introduced for the Sunshine Ponies set, came in white, pink, and blond, but all three colors turned to magenta in sunlight. It was used in Year 7 and Year 10. Color-Changing Hair, unforunately, frizzes much more easily than regular pony hair if exposed to direct light for long periods of time. Once it becomes frizzed, it will no longer change color as well, or at all.

This hair type was used for only one set of ponies -- the Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies. It has a soft, cottony feel and changes color when immersed in warm water. Several different colors of Watercolor Baby Sea Pony Hair were made, and they all change to different colors when warmed. After a few years, however, the hair begins to lose its ability to change color; it generally changes permanently to whatever color it was normally supposed to turn in warm water.
