Hairdos — A Bun

To do this bun, you will need a doll hairbrush, a spray bottle, two hair ties, mini bobby pins and a hair net (optional).

Start by making a ponytail.  See here for my previous post on a ponytail.

DSCN4578Move the hair, so the curls go outward and it looks something like this:

DSCN4588Arrange the hair if you need to.
DSCN4589Now you will need to use bobby pins to pin the bun in place.  I used Mini Goody pins.
DSCN4593 They are the perfect size for dolls!DSCN4596Take a pin, and stick it into the edge of the bun, straight towards your doll’s head.  While pushing it down and in, make sure to get it into the hair that is on the head.  Don’t push the pin into the wig, just the hair.
DSCN4597 One you’ve attached the pin to the bun and the hair on the head, push it in.DSCN4598Put bobby pins in all the way around to keep the bun in place.

If your doll will be doing ballet, she may need a hairnet over the bun to make sure no hair starts to fly away.  I used the hair net that my Rebecca arrived in.

DSCN4605 Put the hairnet over the bun.  If there is excess, twist and put the net over again.  I didn’t have enough excess net to do this, so I just tucked the extra in underneath the hair of the bun.DSCN4606Secure the net with bobby pins.
