This hairstyle is called the Triple Knot Hairstyle, and I learned how to do it here. All you will need to do it on your doll is a couple bobby pins. I use the Mini Goody pins. Larger bobby pins may work too, however they will be harder to cover up.
I have decided to write my first review on a pair of shoes I recently got! The Our Generation “Red All About It” shoes are a sparkly coral-ish pink.
They have a cute ribbon bows on the front, and silver metal studs all the way around. The studs rattle a little when putting on the shoes, but it doesn’t look like they will fall out.I expected the shoes to have a gritty feel to them, because of the glitter. Actually, they are quite soft to the touch.I have heard that some Our Generation Shoes don’t fit American Girl Dolls well. However, these flats fit my AGs very nicely.I especially like these shoes because they are a unique color.
The soles are black plastic, similar in material to the soles of the purple shoes in this outfit which are from Sophia’s on Amazon.

I’m excited to show you what my dolls are wearing today!
Sparkly headband (see here) and shoes (from American Fashion World on Amazon.com) contribute to the “frozen” theme.
The hot pink high tops are from Sophia’s.Also, it’s Freebie Friday today over at PixieFaire.com! The free pattern for today is the Gladiator Sandals for 18 inch dolls. You can hop on over and download it by clicking here!
I think it’s fun to find hairstyles for girls, and translate them to doll hair. This time I did a waterfall headband, which you can see the tutorial for from Cute Girl Hairstyles here. My Sophie doll is fun to do hairstyles on because she has long, thick, soft and shiny hair. To do this on your doll, she will probably need to have a parting wig, which means the wig does not have a sewn in part. For example, AG Mckenna and Kailey have parting wigs. This hairdo may also work on a low side part.
Today I will show you how I fix my Rebecca doll’s curls if they get messy. I first learned how to redo her curls from this post on AmericanGirlFan.
You will need a doll hairbrush and a spray bottle.
Gently brush through the curl, then twist it to the left like so:
Let the twist loosen up. If the curl doesn’t look right, you can redo it or arrange it.Do this all around your doll’s head. It will take time, but at the end it will look so cute!
I usually do curls like above, but you can also make larger curls by taking more hair in one curl and twisting it.
I sewed up a sundress for my Kidz and Cats doll out of a shirt. The original top already had the shirring, so all I had to do was cut a rectangle and sew a seam on one side to make a tube. The original top also had strings, which I cut and sewed to the sundress to make a halter top style. I made a similar dress for my American Girl Doll here. You can read about the matching flower headband in the pictures below there as well.
For this bun, I put the headband on first. Afterwards, I took a section on each side from near the ear and braided it. I then had two braids on each side, and a large lock of hair in the middle. middle section of hair I twisted up into bun, securing it as I went with bobby pins. Once I had the bun in place, I wrapped the braids around and pinned them.
Two low braids are so cute for a casual summer day! You will need a doll hairbrush, two hair ties, and a spray bottle. Let’s get started!
Begin with your doll’s hair down.Spray it with water so it is very slightly damp. Separate it into two equal sections. I didn’t need to brush out all my doll’s curls.Braid the two sections, positioning the braid so it begins just behind the ear.Finish with a small hair tie on each side.
Quick and adorable!
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.
Move the hair, so the curls go outward and it looks something like this:
Gently bring the hair around the base of the pony, making this shape. I then slipped a hair tie over for extra security.
Arrange the hair if you need to.
Now you will need to use bobby pins to pin the bun in place. I used Mini Goody pins.
They are the perfect size for dolls!Take 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.
One you’ve attached the pin to the bun and the hair on the head, push it in.Put bobby pins in all the way around to keep the bun in place.
You are done with the bun!
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.
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.Secure the net with bobby pins.
Front view:Now your doll won’t need to worry about her hair while she’s dancing!
