Most of you who read this blog know about Melody Ellison who is release in just a few short weeks! You can already pre-order her if you are an AG rewards member, and her book and site are up. She will be officially for sale on August 25. These couple of posts will be facts about her, my opinions of her and her collection, crafts, hairstyles, and whatever else I put in here relating to her. It will be somewhat like the Samantha Re-Release party we had a few years ago, but spread out over time. This post will be short hair care tips that I have learned from Rebecca and my own hair.
Tip #1: With short hair, clips, partial styles, bows, and accent braids are best. Putting all of the doll's hair up will either make it fall out, have a lot of fly aways and pieces sticking out, or look off. Things such as a French twist accent, half up half down, and pull backs are great easy options. Look forward to tutorials coming soon.
Tip #2: Curling the hair on a short haired doll is fun and rather easy. I curl Rebecca's hair two or three times a year or more to keep it looking nice, and Melody's would require curlers once in a while to keep the ends turning up. Simply dampen the hair with water and wrap just the edges around the foam curler. Let sit overnight for best results.
Tip #3: Avoid collared shirts for your dolls. Their short hair can get stuck in the edge and stick up wierd. If you do want a collared shirt, make sure you pull it over the collar.
