How to cut blythe doll hair ?

Cutting a Blythe doll's hair can be a simple way to change its hairstyle or give it a fresh look. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to cut a Blythe doll's hair:

Materials you'll need:

  1. Blythe doll
  2. Sharp scissors (preferably small and pointed for precision)
  3. Comb or brush
  4. Hair clips (optional, to section off the hair)

Step-by-step process:

  1. Prepare the doll: Before you begin cutting, remove the doll's head from its body. This can usually be done by removing a small screw or other fastening mechanism on the back of the doll's head.

  2. Detangle the hair: Use a comb or brush to gently detangle the doll's hair. This will make it easier to work with and give you a more even cut.

  3. Decide on the hairstyle: Before cutting, have a clear idea of the hairstyle you want for your Blythe doll. You can use pictures or sketches as a reference to guide you during the cutting process.

  4. Section the hair (optional): If you're cutting the hair into layers or need to work on specific sections, use hair clips to separate and hold the hair out of the way temporarily.

  5. Trim the hair: Hold the doll's head securely and carefully begin cutting the hair to your desired length. Start with small cuts, as you can always trim more if needed. Be cautious not to cut too much at once, as there's no way to reattach hair if you cut off too much.

  6. Check the length: After each cut, check the length of the hair to ensure it matches your desired style. Remember that hair can appear longer when wet, so it's better to cut it a bit longer initially.

  7. Create layers (optional): If you want to add layers to the doll's hair, cut small sections at different lengths to achieve the layered effect. You can hold the hair outwards at a 45-degree angle from the doll's head and make small, upward cuts to create layers.

  8. Trim any uneven parts: Once you've achieved the desired hairstyle, check for any uneven or stray hairs and trim them for a polished look.

  9. Styling: After cutting, you can style the doll's hair as desired using a comb or brush. You can also use water or styling products, like gel or mousse, to create specific looks.

  10. Reattach the head: Once you're satisfied with the hair cut and style, reattach the doll's head to its body, and your Blythe doll is ready to display or play with!

Remember to take your time and be patient while cutting the doll's hair, as it's a delicate process. If you're uncertain about cutting the hair yourself, you may consider seeking assistance from someone with experience in doll customizations or hair cutting.
