How to Set Your Doll's Bangs by Kathy at RestoreDoll.com

Kathy from RestoreDoll.com sent out this newsletter to share with all:

To start off, I don’t cut the bangs or the hair until I set the hair in place. Here is how I do it. I set the bangs before I curl the hair. In getting ready for the hot water set or perm, boil the water on the stove and have a small bowl large enough to stick the dolls head in it. When doing just the bangs, you only have to get that part wet. After dividing the hair, I comb it into straight pieces that I can keep in place with netting and a tie. I use coated wire ties that won’t dye onto the doll or hair. I do not use rubber bands because they crease the hair and are hard to get off. Make sure the netting is a light or better yet white color. You can also use old panty hose. Test the netting in hot water to make sure the color does not Run. I highly suggest white. Pull the bangs down over the face. Secure the netting over the bangs and part and secure it with the wire tie.
You can secure the wire tie around the neck or shoulders. Put the boiling water into the bowl and make it deep enough for the bangs and part to be submerged.  Stick the head into the water and leave for several minutes.
Take the head out and blot it dry with a clean towel.  You can now take off the netting and the bangs should be set.
Everyone is crazy about the new colors. Please send some pictures so I can use them on my website. If you haven’t seen them go to my homepage of the catalog, here is the link
