All dolls have secret lives as we all know…here’s a peek into three!
Though they’ve never met, these three Pink Bubbles Doll Spa clients all have one thing in common…a run-in with a pair of scissors! Yes, each one of them had the unfortunate experience of having their long ponytails lopped off, leaving them a little “short” on styling options. Whether hacked off above or just below the shoulders, they all faced the same problem… to do the best with what they had (left!) That’s where I come in, adding the second thing they all have in common, taking a seat in my chair!
Now, we all know that a gals hair is her crowning glory, but when that crown has been irrevocably altered by a little “beautician-in-training,” it can be quite upsetting for the doll forced to live with the results. Don’t worry ladies, when a hair tragedy strikes, there’s always hope here at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!
Our first example is Paige. This striking brunette was in dire beauty straits when she first arrived, as you can see from her “before” picture below. After a day of beauty services to her face and body, the last thing to tend to was her cut hair. It was decided an elegant up-do was the way to go and she, and her owner Lisa, were thrilled with the results. You’d hardly guess it was the same girl!
Lottie, from the collection of Jaime, faced the same hair challenge. A lovely #3, she was nearly perfect…except for her hair. Cut off at the shoulders, the remains of her blonde ponytail were fashioned into the elegant bun style seen below.
What a difference a day at Pink Bubbles can make! She’s now the perfect fashion model for “Gay Parisienne” one of the rarest of all vintage Barbie doll outfits. Magnifique!
When this blonde bombshell is spotted out on the town, admiring gentlemen call out, “Ooh la la…it’s Lottie!”
Our third example of a cut ponytail fix is Edie, a Swirl with a very pretty shade of red hair. So pretty in fact, her owner Victoria wanted to save it, so we took on the challenge! Luckily, her swirl bang hair was still long enough to make it around the top wrap. After that though, there wasn’t much to work with. The solution? A double curled topknot! And as a tribute to the classic yellow ribbon that would have held the bottom of her ponytail in place, a charming decorative bow is added as the finishing touch.
So there you have it. Three examples of hair mishaps with happy endings! So the next time you come across a gal with “cut” hair, don’t just dismiss her, she may actually be a “diamond in the rough.” Take a moment and think back to this fabulous trio. Who knows, you may have found your own “Up”-Town Girl” who, with a little help, could soon be ready to model the most elegant evening gown in your collection!
