you will need

1 pair of Thinning scissors (can use sharp scissors but more room for error, thinners are best)
1 shadowfax with Hideous Bob
1 comb
1 prayerbook (incase it goes wrong)

comb the hair down either side remembering to keep aside shadowfax’s fringe (bang for our American friends)

take the scissors and hold them vertical to the hair and gently cut up parallel to the section, doing so will subtly soften the harsh edges of the hair.
use your eyes to determine how feathered you want the hair to be, keep in mind DO NOT USE THE SCISSORS HORIZONTALLY keep them vertical at all times cutting up into the section until desired result.

hope this helps.
anymore questions let me know.

Never in my life did I think I’d have to watch a video on how to use thinning shears. That’s about to change lol. Awesome work on that mane!

This is very kind of you. Though I am somewhat embarrassed to see so many collectors lacking so many simple skills.

Beside the point that I am bald. If someone screws up their hair cutting it it will grow back. Not so much for this 400 dollar collectible. You butcher it it’s here to stay

My aunt is a hairdresser; how weird would it be for me to show up with a white horse statue and ask her to give it a trim?

She loves LOTR and knows better than to expect regularly acceptable human behaviour out of me so I’m gonna say it’s a good plan.
Do it! And make sure to take a video of the process. :lecture

Anyone else order Gandalf through SS?

I have mine on payment plan through them, but I'm just eager for more images/content while I wait.
