Criss-Cross Pigtails


Here is an easy Spring style that you can give doll! Be sure to read all of the directions and look at the photos, first.

What You Need
*wire-wig brush
*small misting bottle of water
*three pairs of hair elastics
*one pair of ribbons (optional)

Step 1: Brush and mist your doll’s hair (be sure to cover her eyes so they don’t get wet. Make two half-pigtails and tie each with an elastic.

Step 2: Cross the right half-pigtail over to the left side. Add some hair (about half of the left side; the half furthest from the center) to the half-pigtail that you crossed and tie with an elastic.

Step 3: Repeat step two, on the other side. Cross the left half-pigtail over the right one, and add half of the hair from the right side, to it. Tie with an elastic.

Step 4: Gather all of the hair on each side, and tie with elastics, to finish out the pigtails. If you want to, you can tie ribbons around the last elastics as well (you can also add ribbons around the other elastics but it’s probably best to do so before going onto the next step).

There you have it: Criss-cross pigtails! Have fun giving your doll this sweet ‘do.
