Doll Hairdressing series 1: How to give your doll a braided ponytail!

Hi girls!
Here's my very first hairstyling tutorial for you! It's Melody's very favourite hairstyle, she wears it pretty much all the time. I think it really suits her! I'll be doing a few more hairstyling tutorials soon, please let me know if you like this one!
Start by getting your doll, and clamping her body (just under her armpits) between your knees so as to keep her head nice and tight.

Then, starting at the bottom, brush your doll's hair, gently working the knots out until you reach the top,

like this.

After a bit of brushing, her hair should now be smooth and easy to work with.

Now, take a small bit of hair from just above her ear.

Brush it smooth so it lies nice back against her head, like this.

Then divide that bit of hair into three approximately equal parts.

Cross the right part over into the middle

Then the left

Then the other one. Repeat until you have a nice long braid,

like this.

Then secure the end with a crocodile clip.

Repeat for the other side,

Secure them both with a hairband, then

flip them over her face so they're out the way while you work on the ponytail.


Brush her hair, so it's nice and neat again

then use your hand to gather and brush it into a low ponytail over her neck.

Flip the braids back over the top.

Take off the hairband and hold the braids in place

Get another hairband to secure it all together, then brush the ponytail until it looks nice and neat.

Like this

You can add a ribbon or something if you like.




Hope you enjoyed reading my first tutorial!
