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!
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.
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!
Once a week for the next couple weeks, I will be posting a hairstyle that will hopefully give you ideas of different things you can do with your doll’s hair. Let’s get started!
I used my curly haired Rebecca doll for this cute and curly ponytail. I used a doll hairbrush, a small spray bottle with water in it, and a hair tie. The American Girl website says:
“For best styling results, lightly mist your doll’s hair with water as needed before you brush or pick it. Use just enough water to make the hair easier to work with. Be sure not to get water in her eyes—they may rust!”
Spray the hair with the water to get it slightly damp. Pull up the curls to where you want the pony to be on your dolls head. You will probably need to smooth things out as you go. I didn’t brush through the curls, because I wanted lots of curls in the ponytail instead of one big curl.
Find each little curl, spray it with water, and finger curl it by twisting it to the left. After curling each little curl, move them around until you think it looks cute. Now you have a sweet curly pony tail!
