Hello! Happy Independence day friends! Hope you have a fabulous one! Today I have a fun 4th of July hair style to share with you! So hope you enjoy!
A wig brush
These are amazing, it’s like they were made for hairstyles! XD
5 itty bitty bands.
3 red, 2 blue, and a random band of any color you’d like.
8″ long ribbon
This is optional. Some people mist their dolls’ hair, some don’t. So whichever way you’d like to do it 🙂
……… You might need this, but I don’t know. Just in case I’ll be keeping Josie with me.
Hair pick with a stick on one end
Does anyone know what these are even called? Because I have no clue. Anyways, this is optional as well. It’s just helpful for separating the hair in the beginning.
Let’s get started! First things first, lightly mist hair (If you decided not to wet your doll’s hair, you can skip this step), Making sure to cover dolly’s eyes so no water gets in. If you neglect to do so and your doll gets silver eye, then I shall drive to your house and glare at you, and no one wants that.
Brush out your doll’s hair until smooth and knot free.
Alrighty! Now brush the hair in front back over the top of your doll’s head.
TIP: If your doll has super slippery hair like Josefina, then you may need to hold the hair on top. No worries if the front side sections fall, we can grab those in a minute.
Slide stick under hair to create middle section.
Wrap hairband around this section.
Use our sticky friend to pick up hair on side of head,
And wrap another hairband around it.
Repeat on other side of head. You should now have 3 sections.
Take the middle section, and like a super karate ninja, split it in two.
Spilt one of the 2 sections into 3 parts. Then braid 6 times.
NOTE: In this hairstyle, I’m counting each time I pass a section over the middle piece. I.E. Left over middle counts as one, then passing right over middle is two, etc.
Once you’ve finished braiding, slide on bobby pin to hold until you’ve completed the rest of the sections. Repeat braiding and bobby pinning with other half of middle section.
Grab either the left or right section and split it into three. braid 8 times.
Then secure with bobby pin, repeat on other side.
Okie dokie, time to join the braids!
Take the two braids on the left side and hold them together in one hand, pull out the pins.
Take a blue band and wrap braids together.
please do the same on the right 🙂
Braid both of the two sections 6 times.
Now for the hardest part…… Wrap the two braids together with the last band 😉
Doesn’t it look beautiful?
Last thing to do is to tie the bow around the last band and you’re done!
Your doll is now ready for an awesome day!
I hope you enjoyed this hairstyle and that you had a wonderful 4th! Sorry if anything is a little wonky in this post, never used WordPress before XD If you have any questions on this hairstyle, feel free to ask! Have an awesome day friends!
