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.
Top, waterfall to the right
For this picture I put the “waterfall” strands of hair falling to the left side of her face.
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.
