Saving a Bad Hair Barbie -DIY Rerooting Attempt #1

Last year I picked up a thrift store doll that was in poor shape and gave her matted hair a quick braid here to see if I could save her... Not so much. So I replaced the head and the blonde was tossed into a box of misfit toys. For some reason I've had hot pink hair on my mind, so I grabbed a play hair band from Dollar Tree and watched a couple videos about re-rooting doll hair. Quickly decided that project might be a little too tedious for me. But I thought maybe I'd just pry the braided piece off of the headband and glue that around the doll's head, perhaps that would be a quick fix...

Barbie says-
Don't be afraid to change it if you think you can make it better, and...
Have a happy day!

  1. Hmmm, definitely daring, and great result. I think that it would definitely be fun to add some streaks or GRAY hair to a few dolls. Definitely wish there were more mature choices of dolls. Great idea to just do partial hair. Hugs, Sandi

  2. You did an amazing job on Barbie's hair, Lynn! I like the two-toned look and the pink really does make her eyes po.


Thank you for stopping by!
