Guide to change wig and head of an NBL blythe doll

Changing the wig and head of an NBL  Blythe doll involves a few simple steps. Here's a guide on how to do it:

Materials Needed:

  1. Replacement wig
  2. Small screwdriver
  3. Soft cloth or tissue


  1. Prepare the Workspace:

    • Find a clean, well-lit workspace where you can comfortably work on the doll.
    • Lay out all the necessary materials within reach.
  2. Remove the Scalp:

    • Carefully lift the doll's scalp to expose the inner mechanism.
    • Some NBL Blythe dolls may have screws holding the scalp in place. If so, use a small screwdriver to remove them.
  3. Detach the Wig:

    • Once the scalp is removed, carefully lift off the existing wig from the doll's head.
    • Wigs on NBL Blythe dolls are typically held in place with small clips or hooks. Gently unclip or unhook them to release the wig.
  4. Remove the Head:

    • If you need to replace the entire head, locate any screws or fasteners securing the head to the body.
    • Use a small screwdriver to loosen and remove these screws.
  5. Replace with New Wig or Head:

    • If you're only changing the wig, align the new wig with the doll's head and secure it in place using the clips or hooks.
    • If you're replacing the entire head, align the new head with the doll's body and reattach any screws or fasteners.
  6. Reattach the Scalp:

    • Once the new wig or head is in place, carefully lower the doll's scalp back onto the head.
    • If there were screws holding the scalp, use a small screwdriver to reinsert and tighten them securely.
  7. Final Touches:

    • Use a soft cloth or tissue to gently clean any fingerprints or smudges from the doll's face or scalp.
    • Style the new wig as desired, using gentle brushes or combs to achieve the desired look.
