Blonde Fulani Inspired Braids

Ava (yes, this Bratz Sun-Kissed Summer Sasha doll has a name) is back! If you don’t remember her, she is the star of the Bratz Doll Reroot video, my “first” YouTube video. Her human hair reroot was a success but her head began to crumble. Due to this, I abandoned her. I almost forget she existed. Stuck in a creative rut, I decided to revisit my old videos. Ava is a beautiful Bratz doll that deserves a second chance, a much-needed makeover. I filmed the process to share with you. Enjoy!

You will need:

  • Patience.
  • Your client (a doll in need of a new hairstyle). I used Bratz Sun-Kissed Summer Sasha.
  • 100% Acetone.
  • Acrylic paint.
  • Paint brushes.
  • Cotton buds.
  • A nail buffer block.
  • Tweezers.
  • Pliers.
  • Cutters.
  • Scissors.
  • A screwdriver.
  • A needle.
  • Hair (synthetic or human, saran or kanekalon, any brand will do).
  • Glue (super, fabric or craft).
  • Wire, metal cuffs, beads, etc. (optional).

Everything you will need should be available via Amazon.
