Barbie is an American icon and most ladies have at the very least owned one in their lifetime. wave Whether or not you’re a Barbie doll collector or buy the dolls in your daughters, I am certain that you agree that Barbie’s hairstyle can detract from her beauty once faraway from the box. What happened!
The “must have” doll displayed within the box with the gorgeous clothes and equipment just isn’t the same with a hairdo that tumbles right into a tangled mess once removed from the field.
What’s a woman to do
It is vitally easy to restore Barbie’s hair. And a doll that is lovingly performed with, or bought as a rummage sale merchandise, can grow to be as good as new and proudly displayed in a set or saved as an heirloom.
Barbie’s hairstyle can enhance or detract from her appears. A simple restyling of her hair can easily be accomplished by anyone.
Most Barbie dolls have Long hair and the simplest method to restyle her hair is by doing a simple updo. Yes, identical to her human counterpart, tying her hair right correct way to wash hair into a ponytail is an easy way to improve her looks.
However, Barbie’s hair is made from fibers that may easily be formed into varied engaging kinds with easy family products.
Hair that has a nylon feel to it’s the simplest to model and might be minimize, shaped, teased, and curled just like human hair.
Some Barbie dolls have hair that looks like “fabric” and i would not advocate working with this sort of hair. It’s very simple to feel the distinction.
Let’s get started. The instructions are for a curly updo. Here is a listing of items that you simply might want to get started.
Barbie doll (rummage sale doll)
Brush and comb
Wash the hair and clear the doll in hot water using dishwashing detergent. This works one of the best as a result of it removes oils, grease, and dirt, but is gentle on most hair and plastics. It will be significant to make use of Scorching water as a result of the heat straightens and removes the hairstyle that has been preset by the factory.
Towel dry, comb and minimize the hair to a good size. Right now decide if the updo hairstyle could have a banged fringe, a aspect swept fringe or is combed straight back. Our style has a facet swept bang fringe that’s combed and held in place with a rubber band in the again of Barbie’s head.
Hair that is combed straight again is the best to type.
Now that her aspect swept bang fringe is in place, gather all the hair and fasten with TWO rubber bands. I order my rubber bands from EBAY, but if you have access to orthodontic rubber bands, these will work additionally.
I’ve found that the dental rubber bands tend to deteriorate over time and snap. And I have gone to a unique brand, but both will work.
At this level it’s possible you’ll want to gently thin the hair with thinning shears. Since Barbie’s hair is synthetic, as soon as gathered, you may have more hair than you need for the hairstyle that you are trying to attain. Watch out when thinning as a result of as soon as the hair is gone it can’t be replaced.
Next use hair rollers (I bought the small curlers at a flea market) and randomly wind the hair round every. It does not matter where you place the rollers because as soon as dry, every curl will fall into place. It is not a precise science, and “messy chic” tends to look better.
As soon as the whole head is rolled, gently submerse the head in boiling water for a second or two. Immediately thereafter place in ice water. The boiling water curls the hair around the rollers and the ice water sets the curls. This will likely take some experimenting and that’s the reason I recommend utilizing rummage sale dolls to study this technique.
If submerged too long in the boiling water, the hair disintegrates and leaves you with a frizzy mess. It’s much like a bad perm. Blot dry being cautious to keep the hair on the rollers.
The explanation that I like to recommend utilizing two rubber bands to hold the hair collectively is that the boiling water could cause one of the bands to snap and undo all your work up so far
Air dry the hair and this could take anyplace from 24 hours to several days. It is crucial that the hair is DRY or else the curls will not set. So be affected person.
As soon as the hair has dried remove the rollers and contact up the place needed. I have discovered that snipping a few hairs here and there is all that is required to attain a professional hairstyle. Applying a little hairspray all over will hold the updo in place.
Watch out to cowl the doll’s plastic components with a paper towel when spraying her hair. Hairspray is difficult to remove from Barbie dolls and I’ve but to discover a strategy to do it successfully.
You are now ready to display the doll.

Take a piece of small tape and then put one other piece of tape over the middle of the sticky end (the width of the bangs). Put this non-sticky finish over the bangs and tape the pinnacle so None of the hair is taped. That can keep the bangs straight when you fashion the rest of the hair.
