As a little girl, I remember spending hours upon hours brushing and styling my dolls’ hair. It was one of my favorite things to do! Now that I have a daughter of my own, I love watching her do the same thing with her 18-inch dolls.
But sometimes, it can be hard to come up with new and fun hairstyles to try. That’s why I’ve put together this list of easy and cute hairstyles that your little one can do on her own or with a little help.
Braided Crown To create this elegant hairstyle, start by parting the doll’s hair down the middle. Then, take a small section of hair from one side and braid it. Do the same thing on the other side. Then, take one of the braids and wrap it around the top of the doll’s head, securing it with a bobby pin. Do the same thing with the other braid, tucking the end under the first braid to create a seamless look.
Space Buns This fun and playful hairstyle is perfect for a day of playtime or adventure. Start by parting the doll’s hair down the middle and then divide each section into two. Twist each section into a small bun and secure it with a hair tie or bobby pin. You can also add a little ribbon or a bow for a pop of color!
Half-Up Bun This easy hairstyle is perfect for a casual day out or a playdate with friends. Start by gathering the top half of the doll’s hair and tying it with a hair tie. Then, twist the hair around itself to create a bun and secure it with another hair tie or bobby pin.
Twisted Ponytail For a more polished look, try the twisted ponytail. Start by brushing the doll’s hair back and securing it with a hair tie. Then, divide the ponytail into two sections and twist each section in opposite directions. Then, twist the two sections together to create a beautiful twisted ponytail.
Side Braid The side braid is a classic hairstyle that never goes out of style. Start by gathering all the doll’s hair to one side and dividing it into three sections. Begin braiding the sections together, adding in small pieces of hair as you go. Secure the braid with a hair tie or ribbon at the bottom.
With these five easy and cute hairstyles, your little one can keep her American Girl,Our Generation, Adora Amazing Girl, My Life or I’m a Girlie doll/s looking fabulous all year round. Whether it’s a day at the park or a fancy tea party, these hairstyles are sure to turn heads and bring smiles to everyone’s faces. So grab a brush and some hair ties, and get styling!
