The 18″ doll line from BFC Ink has been very, very popular and the dolls are reasonably priced, but the biggest disappointment has been their hair – it is AWFUL! We have kept our Addison’s hair in a braid because it is just a big mess.
Look at those ends!! UGH! And that is pretty much how it was coming right out of the box.
Fabulous, right? Not! Anyhow, I saw a video that MyFroggyStuff did on curling your doll’s hair and she used Addison as her model. I thought the end result was so adorable that I just knew our Addison would love a new look.
So first Addison and our Ellowyne doll Aine went to get their hair washed (Aine’s new look will get posted later) and then I deep conditioned Addison’s hair and let it sit for a while.
Megan gave Addison her hair cut. It was Megan’s first time cutting hair and it really turned out cute!
That was just the first bit of cutting! Those ends were horrible.
Ta-da!! Look at that gorgeous hair!! Doesn’t she look like a totally new doll? Her face is perfect for the chin length cut. We decided to try curling it like MyFroggyStuff did so back in the chair Addison went.
I used the end paper you use for perms and the small perm rods and gave her some curl for volume.
And here is Addison with a curly look. I really can’t decide which style I like best – the short and straight or short and curly, but I know one thing, we can work with Addison’s hair again and she LOVES her new outlook on life!
NOTE: Before you go cutting a doll’s hair, please, please check with your parent’s first. Since I paid less than $20 for Addison and I am the Mom, I didn’t mind using her as our experiment.
