Steps in Making Mohair Doll Wigs

Now for the steps, you should do the following to come up with quality doll wigs.

1. The first step in replacing wigs for children on your doll’s head is by cutting your doll’s hair as close as possible to its scalp. You just have to be careful not to cut the head.

Otherwise, it would be quite difficult to put on a wig on a damaged doll’s head.

2. Take the head off your doll’s body. Do this in one swift yet clean motion.

You can use a hair dryer and aim it at the dolls neck to soften the material and to make the head removal a lot easier.

3. Remove the remaining hair on the dolls neck using the tip of the scissors or any pointed and thin object.

Loosen all the locks from the dolls neck and cut those loose strands with scissors to prepare for the mohair wigs.

4. After the hair strands are loosened, cover your doll’s head totally with a plastic wrapper down to its neckline or head bottom.

5. Get the piece of cloth and place it over the plastic wrapped on your doll’s head.

Make sure that the cloth is properly and tightly secured on your doll’s head to avoid wrinkling mohair doll wigs. Otherwise, you would go back to using child wigs.

After this, get your marker and mark your desired hairline for your doll’s wig.

6. Get your paint sponge and dip or pour a liberal amount of glue on it then apply it within the hairline you drew from the previous step.

Make sure that the area within your doll’s hairline is thickly covered with glue then allow it to dry over night to come up with a hard cast, which will be the foundation of your doll’s wig.

7. After the hard cast has dried, remove it from the plastic wrapper leaving the wrapper on the doll’s head then cut the excess fabric hanging on the cast.

8. Replace the cast back to the doll’s head over the plastic wrap then glue the mohair to the cast you prepared. Leave it overnight to dry.

9. Take the mohair doll wigs from the plastic wrap and reattach your doll’s head to its body.

After the process, you would be delighted with your doll’s fresh look and you no longer have to get child wigs just to reinvent your doll’s hairstyle.
