My mom found some of my old barbies which are in desperate need of some tlc. Particularly their hair as I apparently thought I would be a hair stylest when I grew up and took an early practice on my dolls.
I had attempted to reroot a doll a while back but found it too tedious and never did get more than a couple of strands in before I called it quits. I don't have a sewing machine here at my parents, so I decided to invest the time in re rooting at least one doll.

My childhood barbie!

I'm not to sure what barbie she is, anyone know?
80's Rockers?

It was a bit annoying at first, but after the first few strands it got a bit easier.

I might just try this again with the other barbies my mom has.
I just need to remember not to put so much hair in each strand.
Some of the first strands I did have entirely too much hair - which is probably why it was so annoying to me. I couldn't' get the hair through the hole it was so thick. After a while I realized I should be thinking the strands, and I ended up skipping a lot of holes as she was really getting thick headed.
I was originally thinking of giving her bangs and waving her hair a bit with a boil perm, but I kinda just like her the way she is.
Now to give her a name, If she ever did have one, I sure can't remember~

Thanks for reading!

  1. If that dress came with the doll, it is not an 80's rocker. Because i have the same dress and i have never bought an 80's rocker.
