Easy Peasy How-to for a Hairstyle Up-do ~for short-haired dolls~

IMG_4856So your very short-haired doll like Kit or Ivy wants to have her hair up, but you don’t know how to do that? Perhaps you’re been trying to do an up-do on your doll’s short hair for a while but just haven’t found the right way?

IMG_4875Well, not to worry. With thisย very easy how-to, your short-haired dolls will love their new look!

IMG_4868For this, you’ll need a hair band (or two) and some bobby-pins (you can use as many as you want, but I only end up needing about four every time.).

IMG_4869First, make a ponytail – it can be at any height, high or low, because whatever hair falls out you’ll bobby pin up, but that part comes later.

IMG_4870You’ll end up with something like…uh…like this.

IMG_4871Now, take theย hair that is sticking out and bobby pin it up, like this. You’ll need about 2+ bobby-pins for this.

IMG_4872Take the remaining hair and separate it into two parts.

IMG_4873Pin one side up towards the hair-band:

IMG_4874Now the other side.

IMG_4875You can use another hairband around her head (if it’s big enough) for that extra touch. ๐Ÿ™‚

Continue pinning up extra hairs if you need to, and there you have it!

IMG_4876Ellie waves bye!

I hope you enjoyed! Let me know if you do this hairstyle on your doll and if it turned out OK! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have kit so i am going to try it on her. I am glad I can get her hair up now! I might try it on my MAG doll to because she has short hair but not as short as kits. bye.

      I can’t e-mail… are you registered on girlsforjesus.boardhost.com? It’s not about AG or homeschool – we could PM there if you’d like.

        Ah, ok. ๐Ÿ™‚ That makes sense.
        I hope so too! Blargh she better.
        Oh cool! We’re so alike.. I was telling my mom more about you the other day and she was saying we should totally meet IRL. I told her that’s why I’ve been trying to say for months. -_- Really though, I wish I lived in Florida. Do you know (other than possibly around your birthday) when your in Texas? We might be visiting our relatives sometime this year.
        Aww, thanks! I realized I never told you that I’ve been praying for you as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

          I know – we really are alike!! ๐Ÿ˜€ LOL! I think it would be amazing if we met in real life ๐Ÿ™‚ . I believe for a few weeks in early June…we’ll be back in Florida for my birthday though, but we are celebrating it with my BFF’s in Texas.
          YW! And thank you :-). IDK how many times I say this, but…that means a lot. <3

          ๐Ÿ˜€ XD We love smiley-faces.
          Yes it would! Is it OK if my mom emails your commenting email (I’m assuming it is your dad’s email?) and asks the exact days and whatnot? I don’t feel comfortable saying when we’ll be visiting where.
          You’re welcome too! I hope so. ๐Ÿ™‚

            I don’t know … which commenting email are you talking about? (just need to make sure it’s the right one before your mom emails it lol.)

            Blargh I’m sorry, I thought I replied to this
            It’s the rl@————–.com (Won’t say the whole email — I’m sure your dad doesn’t want to get spammed to death!)
            Also Madi I have an idea for us to talk. I know you have Google+ — are you allowed to PM me through that?

            Never mind, I saw it. She’s still thinking about it, I think. We’ve been really busy and she hasn’t really had the time to think about it much. Maybe if I remind her that I asked her in March….

    I understand how hard it is to unpack my sis just moved to Portland on sunday and it took them SOO long just to pack. Today I went with my mom to her house to clean it up for the showing and the alarm went off! IT SCARED THE WITS OUT OF MEH! I guess my one year old niece turned it on through the phone and we didn’t know it!

      Yeah, unpacking can be…let’s just say, HORRIBLE! XD. LOL! That’s a very smart niece you have! Alarms always startle me…it took me a little bit to get used to the alarm system we had in our old house. The second you triggered it, it would beep rapidly for 30 seconds – you were rushing to enter in the passcode to turn it off or (if you’re me, which didn’t know the passcode) covering your ears, cringing, screaming, “SOMEBODY QUICK TURN THE ALARM OFF!” and then BLAMO! Alarm goes off. XD

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