Re-root: Dominique

Hello, dolly friends!

I'm excited to share one of my newer dolls and re-roots, Dominique. She's a Barbie Basics doll, and I found her on eBay. She had a severe-looking haircut when she came to me, and while we were both happier with it after a trim, in the end we decided that she needed a total change. Here she is now:

I love how she turned out! Later on I'm probably going to add some waves to her hair, but for now, I wanted to show off how sleek it is after a hot water treatment -- you can see the highlights better this way, too. She's wearing a shirt and sweater by Mattel, which came with Glam Luxe Midge, and her floral pants were made by yours truly.

I was going to post her by herself, because honestly? A doll this fabulous demands a solo post. But then I saw another photo that Uncle John had taken of my newest Monster High doll, Ghoul Fair Heath Burns, and I realized... it looked like she was staring him down! And then he was like...

"What?!!! What did I do?"

And then she was like....

"You know what you did. Don't act cute with me."

This was completely unintentional on Uncle John's part, and I love it. Of course, after the photo shoot, both dolls sat on the couch, all snuggled up like nothing had happened. Almost a week later, they're still together, and it's clear to me that this showdown was all for... show.

Even though he didn't get his name in the title of this post, I'm excited about Heath, too. I love that I won't have to re-root him if I don't want to! Plastic hair... equals no glue. The top of his head looks a bit like a Dairy Queen ice cream cone, but I think that's part of his charm.

Stay tuned for more new dolls, re-roots, and dolly antics! I have another re-root coming up, and while she wasn't one hundred percent cooperative during the photo shoot, I think she's lovely.

Much love,

Sarah J Sequins

  1. Wow, Sarah. You do such an incredible job at re-roots and hairstyling. I am impressed. And yes, Dominique is fabulous (and she knows it)!!!! Looking forward to seeing more! P.S.

    1. Thank you so much, April! Your compliments mean a lot to me. <3

      I already have the next post written and scheduled. It should be out on Saturday.

  2. Wow! The reroot is fabulous. I love, love, love her pants, too! So '60s-groovy!

    That was cute exchange between these two.

    I am actually stopping by to let you know I nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. See the specifics at the URL

    or here.


    1. Thank you! I have plenty of flowery fabric left, so if your dolls want any flowery pants, let me know. <3

      Oh, awesome! I didn't know that we could change the questions -- that sounds like a lot of fun. Thanks again for nominating me.

  3. I just found this page, but after reading the latest post, I had to go back and read them all. I like your writing style. I also like that you re-root. I want to try it one day.

    1. You went back and read them all? That is a super awesome compliment, thank you! <3

      Re-rooting is a lot of fun. When you're ready to try, let me know! I can recommend hair suppliers and tutorials. I've been hoarding all kinds of tutorials here:
