Is there an easy way to make hair on a doll?  I have seen a tut by owlishly and it seems so complicated that my girly doll is still bald, I want some hair that is not going to take hours to put on and that will look super cute and stylish?  Do u have any tips?  How do you add hair to your ami girls?  Thx

I would recommend the fringe style hair method (you have to scroll down a bit).

The link that Lionne gave you has all the typical methods that I know of, but it doesn't have the method I use, which I find to be much easier, faster, and better looking than the typical methods that I've tried.

Unfortunately, I've never once seen a tutorial that shows my method. And also, I'm horrible at explaining things with no pictures to reference. Sad (It's essentially just sewing each hair in individually, which sounds tedious, but the way I do it is not as bad as a lot of other methods) I'm about to put hair on the doll I'm currently working on, and I can probably put together a picture tutorial or something if you want.

Hair is my biggest failure too. That is why my trolls are still bald and a few other ones that are not posted. LOL.

I found a really helpful video on youtube.

I'm doing a Max from WTWTA doll now and I wanted him to have a lot of shaggy hair so I'm doing his hair with a latch hook across his hair. Its really thick but I like really like it!
