Bailey gets a haircut...

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!!!
