Wearing a wig on a Blythe doll can be a fun and creative way to change her look. Here's a basic guide on how to put on different types of wigs on a Blythe doll:

1. Standard Wig:

  1. Prepare the Doll:

    • Ensure the Blythe doll's hair is neatly combed or secured to the head, so it doesn't interfere with the wig.
  2. Hold the Wig:

    • Gently hold the wig, making sure the inside is facing you.
  3. Position the Wig:

    • Align the front edge of the wig with the doll's hairline. The wig should cover the entire head evenly.
  4. Secure the Wig:

    • Press down on the edges of the wig to secure it in place. If the wig has an adjustable elastic band, adjust it for a snug fit.
  5. Style as Desired:

    • Once the wig is secure, style it as desired using a comb or your fingers.

2. Braided or Styled Wig:

  1. Follow Steps 1-4 from Standard Wig.

  2. Adjust Braids or Style:

    • If the wig has braids or a specific style, adjust them to sit neatly on the doll's head. Use small hairpins if needed to secure specific elements.
  3. Secure the Style:

    • Use clear hairpins or clips to secure any loose sections of the wig's style.
  4. Final Adjustments:

    • Make any final adjustments to ensure the wig looks natural and fits well.

3. Long Wig:

  1. Prepare the Doll:

    • Comb or secure the doll's original hair to create a flat base.
  2. Position the Wig:

    • Hold the long wig with both hands and gently position it on the doll's head. Ensure the ends fall smoothly.
  3. Secure the Wig:

    • Press down on the edges to secure the wig. Adjust the elastic band if necessary.
  4. Style the Ends:

    • Style the ends of the long wig as desired. You can leave it straight or add curls or waves.
  5. Final Adjustments:

    • Check the overall appearance and make any final adjustments for a polished look.


  • Use Wig Caps:

    • Some doll enthusiasts use wig caps to help keep the doll's original hair in place and create a smooth surface for the wig.
  • Experiment with Different Styles:

    • Have fun experimenting with different wig styles to give your Blythe doll a unique and varied wardrobe.
  • Handle Wigs Gently:

    • Wigs can be delicate, so handle them gently to avoid tangling or damaging the fibers.

Remember that changing the wig on a Blythe doll is reversible, so you can try different looks and switch back to the original hairstyle as desired.
