Hair Tail Suitable For Fashion Crissy Replace: Ginger Color #350 - Long 23" Tail:
DOLL REPAIR & CUSTOMIZING
Synthetic Hair:Ginger #350
Long 23"length:1 Tail in the Package
This page offers synthetic hair pieces for rooting VINTAGE dolls. I originally wanted these pieces in order to replace the tails on fashion Crissy dolls, but they are useful for re-rooting old dolls, especially vintage dolls from the late 50's and 1960's.
NOTE: Our supplier is not stocking the red hair tails anymore: when our synthetic hair packages are gone that will be the end of it, unfortunately. We will probably be able to get black but the auburn and ginger colors will be gone.We do NOT recommend these hair tails for Reborn dolls. The Reborn dollmakers prefer mohair. We do not offer mohair at this time. COLOR MATCHING. Our color selection is limited: we do not have access to a full spectrum so if you are trying to match color/texture exactly you would do better to look at thrift stores or bargain dolls at toy stores in order to find a color match. Sometimes you can match your old doll if you blend two colors together.
Doll collectors have used these hair tails to customize or repair MANY different kinds of dolls, with beautiful results!

SYNTHETIC FIBERS. These synthetic hair hanks are made of kanekalon or toyakalon or modacrylic. We stock mostly the DIANA brand, which is sleek yaki hair with a slight texture and natural shine.ROOTING THE HAIR. I use Felting Needles for rooting dolls. (You can learn how to do this if you check out our tutorials.) I have used the hair pieces on this page to re-root Baby Crissy. I mixed hair fibers from auburn and ginger tails in order to custom blend a color that matched her original hair color exactly. My doll's bangs had been cut, so I trimmed the hair plugs down to the scalp in that area and rerooted most of the front. The project took a couple of hours at the most, and she looks like new.
REROOTING VINTAGE DOLLS. We absolutely LOVE the makeovers that have been done, using our gorgeous hair tails.STYLING THE HAIR. Our synthetic hair tails can be styled like real hair. We have used rollers and styling gel with good results. (We have not tried to use electric rollers.) You can use a hair dryer to heat the hair and mold it to the rollers, BUT be careful not to overheat the hair or it will melt. You cannot use a curling iron with these hair tails.
BOILING WATER METHOD. One lady who has been experimenting with the our hair pieces says they do curl very nicely using the hot water method. To do this, you roll the hair on straws (secure with a bobby pin) or use perm rollers or small rollers. Then pour very hot water over the hair (boiling hot)... but be careful to avoid the doll's face and lashes so they aren't damaged by the hot water. You can find instructions for the boiling water method online. You may want to PRACTICE first before experimenting with a valuable doll, and TEST the hair first so you will know if the hair can tolerate this method.
REPLACEMENT TAILS FOR CRISSY DOLLS. This photo shows the long hair tail on Baby Crissy. (Photo is courtesy of the Crissy doctors.) The Short Tails are not quite as long as Baby Crissy's original hair tail.
DYE LOTS. Please understand that hair color does vary with every shipment so be sure to buy all you need for your project because the next dye lot might not be exactly the same color. If any of you do knitting or crochet, then you know how important it is to match dye lots!
FINAL SALE: Craft items such as wigs and hairpieces are not returnable.
