  1. Prepare the Hair:

    • Start by gently combing the doll's hair to remove any tangles. Use a fine-tooth comb or a doll hairbrush to avoid damaging the hair.
  2. Choose the Style:

    • Decide on the hairstyle you want for your Blythe doll. Popular options include ponytails, braids, buns, or leaving the hair down.
  3. Dampen the Hair (Optional):

    • Lightly mist the doll's hair with water using a spray bottle. This can make the hair more manageable and help in creating smoother styles.
  4. Create the Hairstyle:

    • For a simple ponytail:
      • Gather the hair at the desired height on the doll's head.
      • Secure it with a small hair elastic or hairband.
    • For braids:
      • Divide the hair into sections and create a braid on each side or a single braid down the back.
      • Secure the ends with small hair elastics.
    • For buns:
      • Twist or braid sections of the hair and wrap them into small buns.
      • Secure the buns with hair elastics or hairpins.
  5. Accessorize (Optional):

    • Add tiny accessories like clips, ribbons, or miniature hats to enhance the hairstyle.
  6. Adjust and Refine:

    • Use the comb or brush to refine the hairstyle and make any necessary adjustments.
  7. Experiment:

    • Don't be afraid to experiment with different styles and get creative. Blythe dolls have versatile hair that allows for various looks.
  8. Care and Maintenance:

    • Be gentle when styling to avoid damaging the doll's hair.
    • If you want to change the hairstyle, simply undo the elastics or hairpins and start anew.

Remember that styling a Blythe doll's hair is a playful and imaginative activity, so feel free to express your creativity and have fun with it!
