See why I had to do it? It's wonderful! I found a Barbie from Big Lots for $5.50. Great price for this experiment :) I followed all instructions: Wrapping small sections of the Barbies hair in pipe cleaners, dipping her hair in boiling water for a count of 10, letting her sit over night til hair was dry, and unrolling pipe cleaners from hair, cutting straight ends...but mine didn't quite turn out as cute.
Here's my Barbie before her hair transformation.
The curls on my Barbie just didn't turn out right :/ I'm not sure what I did wrong.
But I made it work anyway :)
I ended up braiding her hair up top and pulled it back into a half pony tail.
It works right? :)
I love the idea of giving your Barbie beautiful curls
so I will be trying this again, in the future, when more Barbies are bought :)
