Oh gee, you want a novel? Lol! Essentially you pull the hair out of the dock along the sides, and thin it on top down the middle of the dock. Gee it's hard to explain!! It's a process! The worst thing you can do is pull too much of the middle and top, the sides need to be nice and clean though. It's an eyeball thing! Keep plucking until it looks just right! You DO NEED gloves for tails, the hair is much tougher to pull and when it's those short ones you need gloves to get a hold of them! It pays to make them hot so the hair comes out easier before you do it!
Just to add, you want to be pulling the short hairs out, the ones that make the tail look fuzzy, you will be suprised how most of the hair on most docks is quite short around the sides!
