Doll Hair – Make A 50’s Hairstyle

Madison here! Ooh, I love this style so much! With all this talk about a new Historical Character from AG from the 1950’s, I just had to show you all an adorable 1950’s-looking-hairstyle!

Note that this hairstyle works best on non-super-curly haired dolls with bangs.

IMG_4513You will need:

A Brush
A mister, if you want to rid the frizzies
A couple of bobby pins
And two hair elastics.

IMG_4514Brush your dolls hair completely, misting it to make sure it’s not super frizzy.

IMG_4515After brushed, separate your dolls hair into two even sections.

Now braid one of the sections. If you do not know how to braid, AG can show you. Click here and scroll to the bottom of the page.

IMG_4516After braiding, tie off with a hair elastic. Repeat with the other section of your dolls hair.

IMG_4517Yay! Now you have two braids.

IMG_4518Take a braid and pull it to the front, then take the little puff of hair sticking out from your doll braid and gently pull it back to the very start of the braid, like shown,

IMG_4520With a bobby pin, insert it in place. (don’t let your bobby pin hang halfway out! In the picture, it’s only halfway in.)

IMG_4521Repeat with the other braid.

Doesn’t this look so cute? You can leave it like this, or…

IMG_4522Gently sweep the braids so the side and up..

IMG_4523insert a bobby pin for extra cuteness (the bangs should stay in place, but the bobby pin makes it look…well, cuter! :))

IMG_4524Wear it with a long and floaty skirt, maybe even a poodle skirt, to get the full 50’s look!

Let me know if you try this style on your doll!

Are you excited about the new 1950’s historical character from AG that’s said to come out next year? What are your thoughts on it?

    D’AWWW!!! This is TOO ADORABLE! Would this work with Molly’s professional braids? I haven’t taken out my Molly’s braids, and I really want to do this with her! BTW, I made Kit a headband out of fabric and a hair elastic, just like you posted about! 😀 Gotta say it again…D’AWW!

        Her braids work! 🙂 Yay! I’m bringing Kit and Molly with me EVERYWHERE we go on the road trip, because we’re not just going to Illinois, on the way back, we’re going to Pittsburgh! I am so excited! We were supposed to go back in 2011, but major flooding from Hurricane Irene (Everyone here calls it the Flood of 2011) stopped us from going. Luckily, we didn’t get flood damage because we live on this GIGANTIC hill. It really hurt Lancaster County, though. 🙁 I have to let out my excitement.


        I am so going to do this hairstyle on Molly when I get to Pittsburgh. It’s going to be SO AWESOME! 😀 Oh, and don’t worry about me not talking to you, Madi. I’m bringing my laptop with me, so I can check my dollie websites and talk to you. That’s the coolness of having a laptop, you can bring it with you! Kelly♥

      I’ll definitely be getting the 50’s girl. I wrote to AG about it, so it would be like she’s MY doll, you know what I mean? Besides, my mom ♥ the 50’s, so she’d probably be mad if I DIDN’T get her! 😉

      Yep! She is really cute! I saw a few pictures of her (unfortunately they were leaked and got removed) and she’s adorable! I don’t want to say what she looks like because I don’t know if it’s bad (cause she hasn’t been officially revealed to the world). Her name will be Grace Thomas from what I have read 🙂

    MADI ICAN’T GET ON LITTLE HOUSE OF AMERICAN GIRL! IT SAYS THAT IT’S EXPIRED! AHHHH! BTW I may acctually get the 50s girl, so that Molly would have someone from about the same time period. I’ve done that style before! Molly is ADORABLE!

You have a voice. I'd love to hear it!
