- Blythe doll with wig
- Wig brush or a small, gentle comb
- Wig stand or a stable surface
- Hairpins or clips (optional)
- Hair styling products (optional)
Prepare Your Workspace:
- Find a clean and flat surface to work on, like a table or desk.
- Place your Blythe doll on a stable stand or support to keep it steady while working on the wig.
Brush or Comb the Wig:
- Use a gentle wig brush or a small comb to detangle the wig. Start from the ends and work your way up to the roots.
- Be gentle to avoid damaging the wig fibers.
Set the Style:
- Determine the style you want for the wig. You can make it straight, wavy, curly, or even create specific hairstyles like ponytails or braids.
- Use your fingers to shape the wig initially to the desired style.
Use Heat (If Necessary):
- If you need to set a specific style, you can use low heat from a hairdryer or a curling iron (on a low setting) to shape the wig. Keep the heat gentle to avoid damaging the synthetic fibers.
Secure the Style (Optional):
- If your chosen style requires certain elements to be held in place, you can use small hairpins or clips to secure them. Just be sure not to puncture the wig cap.
Apply Styling Products (Optional):
- For added hold or to maintain a specific look, you can use wig-specific styling products, like wig spray or gel. Apply these sparingly to avoid buildup.
- Stand back and take a look at your doll's wig from various angles to ensure the style is as desired.
- Make any final adjustments by gently reshaping or tweaking the style as needed.
Display or Store:
- Once you're satisfied with the wig's style, you can display your Blythe doll or store it in a safe place, protecting the wig from dust and potential damage.
Remember that Blythe doll wigs, especially those made of synthetic fibers, may not hold their shape as well as human hair wigs. Be patient and take your time when styling, and always handle the wig gently to preserve its quality and appearance. If you want to change the style in the future, you can wash and restyle the wig following a similar process.
