Hair Veil of Liberty – Hair Style

liberty

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!

You’ll need….

DSCF0433

A wig brush

These are amazing, it’s like they were made for hairstyles! XD

DSCF0437

5 itty bitty bands.

 3 red, 2 blue, and a random band of any color you’d like.

DSCF0438

8″ long ribbon

DSCF0439

Spray bottle

This is optional. Some people mist their dolls’ hair, some don’t. So whichever way you’d like to do it 🙂

A Doll

……… You might need this, but I don’t know. Just in case I’ll be keeping Josie with me.

DSCF0460

Bobby pins

DSCF0458

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.

DSCF0444

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.

DSCF0445

Brush out your doll’s hair until smooth and knot free.

DSCF0446

Alrighty! Now brush the hair in front back over the top of your doll’s head.

DSCF0448

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.

DSCF0454

Slide stick under hair to create middle section.

DSCF0455

Wrap hairband around this section.

DSCF0456

Use our sticky friend to pick up hair on side of head,

DSCF0457

And wrap another hairband around it.

DSCF0459

Repeat on other side of head. You should now have 3 sections.

DSCF0461

Take the middle section, and like a super karate ninja, split it in two.

DSCF0466

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.

DSCF0468

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.

DSCF0474

Grab either the left or right section and split it into three. braid 8 times.

DSCF0475

Then secure with bobby pin, repeat on other side.

DSCF0477

Okie dokie, time to join the braids!

DSCF0479

Take the two braids on the left side and hold them together in one hand, pull out the pins.

DSCF0480

Take a blue band and wrap braids together.

DSCF0481

please do the same on the right 🙂

DSCF0482

Braid both of the two sections 6 times.

DSCF0484

Now for the hardest part…… Wrap the two braids together with the last band 😉

DSCF0486

Doesn’t it look beautiful?

DSCF0487

Last thing to do is to tie the bow around the last band and you’re done!

DSCF0488

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!

-Katie 🙂
