Hairdos — Curly Ponytail

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!”DSCN4550

Before beginning, your doll should look something like this with your doll’s hair down:

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.

When you get your doll’s hair in the ponytail and put the hair tie around it, it might look a little messy.

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.DSCN4578 DSCN4581 DSCN4580 Now you have a sweet curly pony tail!DSCN4577

American Girl Doll Hawaiian Dress

Today I want to share some pictures of one of the few articles of clothing that I have bought for my dolls.  In fact, other than shoes, this is the only article of clothing I have ever bought for my AG dolls.

Interestingly, when I got this dress I didn’t even own an American Girl Doll!  I did have an Our Generation doll, however.  I was on vacation in Hawaii, and the hotel I was staying at had a booth in the lobby one day.  The booth was selling dresses for 18″ dolls.  I don’t remember how much this dress cost, nor if there were other color options.

Anyway, here’s some pics!

I tried out a pony tail hairdo on Rebecca’s curly hair.  When her hair is down, it hides her face.
