A Complete Guide to Changing Your Blythe Doll’s Hair

In the world of collectible dolls, Blythe stands out with its distinct appearance and customizable features. One of the most rewarding aspects of being a Blythe doll enthusiast is the ability to personalize your doll, and changing its hair is one of the most impactful transformations.

How to change Blythe doll’s hair

Embarking on the journey of transforming your Blythe doll is both exciting and rewarding. With the right tools and a dash of patience, you can give your doll a refreshing new look. Here’s an enhanced step-by-step guide, inclusive of additional tips to ensure a smooth and successful hair change.

Step 1: Gathering the Essentials

Before embarking on this transformation journey, ensure you have a Philips head screwdriver or a snappy hair clip, and a soft cloth. The cloth acts as a protective layer for your doll’s delicate face during the process.

Step 2: Dismantling the Head Plate

Start by locating the three screws on the back of Blythe’s head plate. You’ll find two larger screws at the bottom and a smaller one at the top, above the spring. Use your screwdriver or hair clip to unscrew them, laying the foundation for the subsequent steps.

Step 3: Opening the Head

With the screws removed, lay your doll on the soft cloth and gently squeeze her ears together. This action will pop open her head, granting you access to the internal components, including the old scalp that you aim to replace.

Step 4: Removing the Old Scalp

Inside the opened head, identify the screw securing the old scalp. If you’re facing difficulty in removing the old scalp, consider using a hair dryer to slightly warm it up. This softens the scalp, making it more pliable and easier to remove. Loosen the screw and gently pull off the old scalp, paving the way for the new one.

Step 5: Installing the New Scalp

With the old scalp removed, it’s time to introduce a new persona to your Blythe doll. Fit the new scalp on top of the faceplate, ensuring it’s centered and the hair is evenly distributed. Secure it with the screw, but remember not to overtighten it, as this could damage the doll’s head. This step breathes new life into your doll, marking a rebirth of sorts, with a fresh, captivating hairstyle.

Step 6: Reassembling the Head

Now, with the new scalp firmly in place, it’s time to reassemble the head. Carefully screw back the head plate, ensuring not to pull too hard as this could warp the spring. This step seals in the new identity, completing the transformation process.

Step 7: Admiring the Transformation!

With the head reassembled, it’s time to step back and admire your work. Your Blythe doll now sports a fresh, new look, thanks to the new hair that you’ve skillfully installed. The transformation is not just physical but also symbolic, marking a new chapter in your doll’s life.
