{Posts Of Old #1}

You know how many people have been doing these posts? I love them!! So I thought I’d show you a post I wrote in October of 2014. (Excuse the blurry pictures. We can all see my improvements.) Feel free to leave a comment on that post and tell me if you try out the hairstyle. (Here is a link back to the original post) Let’s get started.

Hi! Here is a fishtail braids tutorial that was requested by DOLLDIYs (Now Flourishing by Restful falls) and I have wanted to do for a while but haven’t had the chance. By the way some of the pictures might be blurry, gritty or of different quality’s because my camera has been doing weird thing. Anyways(,) Enjoy!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You will need: a spray bottle, a doll hair brush, two elastics (certain styles will require more) and a toothbrush

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First split the dolls hair in half. You might want to tie back the one side in a low pony tail so that the other hair doesn’t get in the way.

Next split that hair into two sections but don’t tie it off.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Take a small section from the very front of the outer side and cross it to the inner section then take the most inner section from the inner side and cross it over. This works best if you do it tiny and tight.

Keep doing this till you get to the end of the hair.

Some variations are: add a braid to one piece, stop at the ear with braid for a cool look or a single fishtail down the back.

My Doll Hair Care Routine

Hi guys!!! Today I will be doing my doll hair care routine and some tips and tricks. I was at my grandparents for a week and I did an awesome photo shoot. I also got and made some cool ag stuff so keep checking in for more posts.

 

Ipod pictures may-july 2014 060

First I take out any hairstyle she has in.

 

Ipod pictures may-july 2014 061

Then I sprayed her hair. Quick tip: you can use a cup of water and the top of a spraything to make a spray bottle.

 

Ipod pictures may-july 2014 062

Then brush out her hair. Excuse the writing on my hand I had a swim meet:)

Next smooth out her hair. It keeps fly aways under control. Using an old toothbrush works great! (make sure its clean)
