Mid Month Tutorial: aveuch's hair styling tutorial


I booted up the ol' ipad and went to flickr, where aveuch has her tutorial...
this hair style looks pretty cute!
1. Scissors
2. Pipe Cleaner
3. Flowers or other embellishments (if you so choose)
Step 1:
Fold the pipe cleaner in half,
then place the hair between it, as shown below.
Try to get all the little ends in there (in other words... better than I've done in this pic -_-;; )
Step 2:
Twist the side of the pipe cleaner with the fold into a tight loop.
Step 3:
Twist the other side of the pipe cleaner so it holds the hair tight.
Step 4:
Roll the pipe cleaner upward.
aveuch says it's important to fold upward (so that the pipe cleaner is rolled into the hair, not towards the neck), that way if your doll has layered hair, it hides the layers.
Step 5:
Fold the pipe cleaner that the hair is wrapped around in half, creating a loop.
Twist ends together.
Step 6:
Trim off the extra long ends of the pipe cleaner.
Step 7:
Now that you've trimmed off the excess, tuck the ends of the pipe cleaner into the hair.
Add embellishments if you so choose (I did not for this one), and you're done!
I loved this simple tutorial!
It was easy to figure out and follow!
I absolutely recommend it!!!!


  1. This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I used to hate doing doll's hair and thus always ended up with either loose hair or boring ponytails. This is going to work like a bomb. Thanks so much.

    1. I know, right? It's a pretty awesome tutorial... and I highly recommend checking out aveuch's imagery that I linked too... I think her instructions are way better than mine, LOL!

  2. Beautiful! I want to try it!
    Thanks for this tutorial! :)

    1. It works awesomely, and I think it will be really amazing on even larger girls!

  3. What a lovely hair style! Great tutorial too.

  4. Thank you. That does look doable. :)

    1. It absolutely is! I love how easy this was!!

  5. Hi Heather, this was really interesting. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank goodness I have plenty of pipe cleaners! I have lady in waiting that needs something done to her hair before I cut it.

  7. Wow, Great Tutorial, her hair looks Fabulous! Sooo Awesome!
