I do reroots for soft and medium-hard-headed dolls, from playline to collector!
I've done over 200 full reroots and hundreds of partial reroots so I have a lot of experience!
Hair is solidly sealed inside the head with high heat resistant, super strong, water proof glue.
I use the tool method with thin needles to avoid any extra damage to the scalp.

You can also purchase hair from Restore Doll, Doll hair emporium or Retrodolls US and then send it with your doll head.
I really much prefer to work with Saran. It's silky, stylable, doesn't stain or tangle.
If you want me to work with other fibres you'll need to supply 150% of the usual amount. (dollplanet nylon for example)
I use the tool method so all hair supplied must be twice the desired length on the doll.
3 - Tracked postage cost for a doll head:
I do not do:
Hair styling (fancy updos or braiding for example) or special bang cuts (super short for example)
Super Hard headed dolls (Bratz Pixies, Juku Couture...)
dollyhair.com hair as I don't wish to support them.
For Monster High customs: get the reroot work done before any paint is applied as squeezing the scalp can flake the paint!
Dolls can be boil washed so long as the scalp is not dunked in boiling water as the glue withstands 60°C
I reroot the doll in under 10 days but remember it takes 1 week for the head to get here and 1 to get back to you.
I accept paypal only and require payment first to order the hair before beginning work.
1 slot = 1 doll reroot
What happens when you purchase a reroot?
The client sends me the head & hair via post or just the head & money to purchase the saran hair from Retrodolls or Restoredoll, the client also pays the work fee in advance and postage back to them.
They give me a detailed explanation of what they would like for their doll: hair length, where the parting needs to be, any highlights/lowlights or hair patterns.
The doll head arrives, I begin preparing the head for a reroot:
removing remaining hair, filling in holes with glue etc...
I do the reroot over several evenings and send the client photos of the finished doll (or work in progress if further input is needed)
I ship out the doll and send the client a photo of the parcel along with a tracking link.
Please see this reroot for a detailed walkthrough of the reroot process.
