Making a nice head of hair for your doll can be a daunting task for any dollmaker. If you know how to do the single crochet stitch, you can make a lovely head of hair for your doll. If you don't know how to do this stitch, it is well worth learning for this reason alone :-)

I have a picture tutorial on Ipernity for making a wig for your doll. This tutorial shows how to make a ponytail, pigtails, or a French braid. However, once you've made the wig cap, you can make any style hair you like. Use an eyelash yarn and once the cap is finished you have a head of short, spikey hair; if you hook eyelash strands into this cap, you can have an amazing Fantasy look. Or use a boucle yarn and you have a nice short curly style.

Use mohair yarns for a more realistic hair style; use blue, pink, purple for great Fantasy styles. I use this technique for wigging all of the dolls I make.
