Second attempt at curling Barbie's hair

I know, I know, this is not a crocheted dress, but since I am doing these dolls as Christmas gifts and this is a blog for Barbie, I thought I would share the results.  I am really pleased with the outcome of this Barbie's hair even though it is a little TOO curly.  I am getting better at rolling her hair.  I actually taped down the ends of her hair this time and the ends turn out so much better.  I have thought of an even better way to do it next time, though.  The one thing I would have done better this time is taking my time when separating the curls, re-curling them with my finger so there would be a little less frizz, but all in all it turned out great.

curling Barbie's hair

Here is my first attempt at curling Barbie's hair with straws.  It turned out pretty good I think.  Next time I want to use a doll with much longer hair so it will have pretty, long ringlets.  Something else I will do is use some perm papers to hold  Barbie's hair in place at the ends.  The ends turned out a little ugly this time, but all in all, I am happy with it.  I know it has been a long time since my last post, but making my Christmas gifts is taking up all my time.  I will have a new dress out next week sometime after I can get Christmas behind me.
