A week or so ago, I kept looking at Bailey, the girl I rerooted, and thinking "You're just NOT the girl I fell in love with on Shelly's website, you're now someone else, someone who I'm not sure about!" Well no-one really wants to feel like that about a doll that they were really happy with but I knew what was making me feel that way, it was the hair. The reroot that I did was just too much hair and it sort of changed, not only her whole look, but, and here I sound like a nutcase to anyone who isn't into dolls, it changed her personality too. Before, she was a sweet little girlie and now she was ... well she was a 'doll' with too much long thick hair. Something had to be done.
I put a message on Facebook asking advice and I got lots of good comments, but still it had to be my decision on what to do. I almost removed all of the hair, I was cutting it up in stages, but when I got to about chin level or just below, I realised that her sweet personality was returning!!! So here she is, she now has a very blunt cut bob (I'm going to pretend that the blunt cut was my intention and it wasn't just because I can't do any other style!!!!!) and a wider fringe. I poured boiling water over her head and it all flattened into place with the help of a sock! I know that the reroot will never be perfect but I'm finally pleased with her new look...for now!!!
