A feeling of deja vu!

This week I decided I'd take a short break from sewing, having just finished a string of commission outfits, and start rerooting Bailey again.  You'll remember that we've been down this 'root' before (yes, pun intended) and Bailey went from being a brunette with badly falling hair, to a rerooted mixed mid blond, but not liking that and feeling that she had waaaay too much hair, I cut it all off to just stubble and wigged her.  However, I was never quite happy with my wig choices, so decided to reroot her again.

The changing faces of Bailey:



Poor girl!  Really been through it since coming to live here in Spain with me!

The hardest part was removing all the tufts from her previously reroot.....I really had knotted the hair in tightly, I obviously wasn't planning on doing her all over again when I first did it!!!  However, I eventually got all the plugs out, and two hours later and one very saw right hand, she was bald and ready to go. 

I'm afraid she wouldn't let me take a photo of her this time round (she's got quite bossy since she's settled in here!) so this photo is from last time!!


She doesn't look too happy back then and she looked even more annoyed this time!

Anyway, to cut a long story short.....she is now finished and waiting for her hair to be washed, cut and styled.  I've told her that if she doesn't behave herself then her hair will remain like this until after Hallowe'en, when she can be dressed as a witch!


This is her "I'm not AMUSED!" face I think! 


Although Bailey has a double (sometimes treble) row of plug holes making a parting in her hair, it's not actually centre part, it's slightly over to one side, (as can be seen in the 'baldy' photo above) although unfortunately, not a side part either......sort of an 'in-between' part....so I haven't made her into a full centre part at the back, although I did think about it.  It wouldn't have been straight and would have to have been placed at an angle to the part on top of her head.....I do still want her to have a fringe though and have also been thinking of adding some little curls using the boiling water method that Jackie R told me about......but all that will have to be decided!

I will take more photos tomorrow, hopefully Bailey will look happier by then!

  1. Well I love her new colour! It really suits her, she looks so pretty, I hope she feels happier tomorrow, you cannot blame her after going through all that out of body just to have to have it happen again! It's bound to put a girl out of sorts!!
    Looking forward to seeing Bailey's new look!!
    I'd best get r rooting that Ashlyn I can hear her grumbling from here...something about plane tickets and Spain???

    1. Thanks on the colour Dee, I'm happy with it too, it's very similar to her original hair colour, maybe a fraction lighter. She really was out of sorts.....not a happy bunny at all...but hopefully when she's finished she'll feel better about having to go through it. As they say "no pain, no gain!"

  2. I know it is almost the colour she started with, but I think she's happy to be a brunette. It is a lovely shade and, once her out of body experience is over, I'm sure she'll cheer up!

    1. Hopefully so Jenni! I'm hoping she'll not hold a grudge though because she makes a nice model for me...I'd hate her to down tools and tell me to stick my modelling jobs in the future! ;)

  3. I love Bailey and she knows you will find the perfect hair and style for her. I marvel at your patience Sharon, to try rerooting again. Well done and I look foward to seeing Bailey after your final touches are done!!! :) xxx

    1. Thanks very much Ginger! I hope she realises that it's for her own good that she has to go through all this...I get no pleasure from sticking a needle into her head and then pouring boiling water over her! ;)

  5. Oh poor little Bailey. Another huge shock to her system to contend with....so I do hope that you'll both be very happy with this second re-root.

    Personally I just adored her in her wigged period especially in the one above and her brunette 'wild and wavy' one when it was braided. (If you ever decide to sell this second one I'd be more than happy to buy it for my few girls who unfortunately have to be wigged.)

    1. Yes, you're right Kendal, but hopefully she'll be happy soon! If not, then she'll have to go under the knife (scissors) again! ;) It's the price we have to pay for beauty LOL!
      That wig really has seen better days though Kendal, as has the one above......It's in the flesh that you can see all the stray hairs and untidy bits.....but I will keep it in mind if I ever decide to get rid of it. :)

    1. Thanks Lynn, and yes indeed she has seen the world with all colours of hair. I should have asked her if blonds really do have more fun! ;) xxx
