Lovely Locks: Braided Headband


Today, I am going to teach you how to do a braided headband  your doll. So, let's get started!

So, when doing a hairstyle on dolls with curly hair (like Saige) there is some "prepping" involved.  I do it in three easy steps: spritz, brush, twist.  I don't do this every time, but only when it is needed.

Spritz: When you spritz a curl, don't drench it.  Just spritz it lightly.
Brush: When you brush a curl, make sure you get all the tangles out.  This way, the curl will look smooth and neat.
Twist: Twist the curl the way it lays. If it is turning more to the left, twist tightly in that direction.
This is my finished curl.  Now, you want to repeat the steps for the rest of the curls.
When you are finished, be sure to let the curls dry.  This way, they can set.
Now, we will start the braided headband!

                                  The first step is to take a piece of hair and braid upwards.

Next, you want to cross the braid to the other side of your doll's head.  Then, clip the braid wherever it ends.  In this case, under the dolls head.

                            This is the finished product.  I think it looks just beautiful on Saige.

I hope you enjoyed this "Lovely Locks" tutorial!  Don't forget to speak your mind in the comments!

Doll Room Tour!

Hey Dollie Lovers!

Today I will give you a tour of my doll room, so let's get started!

This is where Alexis and Briana sleep, the computer desk, and a chair.  The loft bed and bedding is Journey Girls, the pink bed is the AG Bloom Bed and Bedding. The nightstand, desk, and computer are all Journey Girls.  The chair is a plant holder that I got from T.J. Maxx. There are also coats and purses.

This is where Saige, Elizabeth, and Lou Mei, sleep.  Elizabeth and Lou Mei share the bed, and there is a pullout mattress and pillow underneath where Saige can sleep. I made the daybed, the mattress is AG, and the pillows are Journey Girls.  The glasses are from Michael's, and the dresser and picture frame were b-day presents.  Okay, moving on!

This is the living/dining room.  All of the furniture is from Journey Girls, and so are the cups and popcorn.  The little thingies on the mantle are miniature boxes from Thailand.  I made the turkey, and the plate is crocheted. That thing to the left is a shoe shelf.

This is the whole view.   The doll room is a walk-in-closet.

Now, as a bonus, I will introduce you to the pets!
From left to right: Stinki the beagle mix, Pepper the husky, Sugar the yorkie, and Nutmeg the bunny.  All of the pets are  AG, except for Stinki.

I hope you enjoyed this!
