Last week I was able to see the new Stars Wars movie. Multiple times during the movie I thought 'I should do Rey's hairstyle on my doll!'.
I could have done the style on Beth, who has the long dark hair of AG #55, but I did it on Maggie instead. Maggie likes Star Wars and her hair is less thick, I think. This style could probably be done on be done on any doll that has straight or curly hair that is not layered. This hairstyle probably wouldn't have worked well on Brooke, for example. It works on dolls with parts, but ideally it would be done on a parting wig like McKenna's.
So here it is!
To do this style you will need four small rubber bands and a brush. The water is optional, but I did use it.
Start with your doll's hair down.
Take a section from the front.
Take it straight back with a rubber band.
It should look somewhat like this.
Now, take a small wisp of hair from either side just above the ear.
Now do a normal half back. Make sure to only take as much hair as you absolutely need. The rest will be needed to do the other buns.
Twist the rubber band and put the pony tail through again, but stop pulling when the loop is the desired size.
Take another section of hair, just below the last one. Include in the second ponytail the leftover hair from the first ponytail.
Repeat for the final bun. Use bobby pins to secure flyaways if needed.
