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!




  1. Cute! It looks just like the one from AG, only more natural!

  2. I love doing this kind of thing, it looks really good with ponytails, too. It looks great on Sagie- much better color match than the AG ones!

  3. Thank you! I got the idea for this post when I couldn't find a color match for saige

  4. Soooo cute!!!
