You will need a section of viscose fibre in your choice of colors..
Start by dividing your hank of hair in two fairly even strands.
Pull the strand out of the water and hold one end against the curling rod and begin winding the hair around the rod.
Your curling rods can be small double ended knitting needles, like mine, or you can use pieces of piano wire, or straightened paper clips, or pieces of coat hanger wire...you just want the surface of the rod to be smooth and something that will not rust when it gets wet.
Here is a pile of curls just removed from the rods. Set them aside for now.
Doing hair is just plain messy. No getting around it. And I hate picking viscose strands from my lovely laces for weeks afterwards....
So take a plastic sandwich bag and cut off the corner, making an opening just big enough to push the head thru. Put the doll in the bag, with head poking out thru the hole. This will protect your clothing while you work her hair.
Note: I always save the wigging for AFTER I have finished all of the costuming, If you do the wig first, it may end up as a frizzy mess by the time you are finished fitting all of the clothing.
When the hair is well anchored to the head, trim off to above the neck as shown.
Hold the hair taut between your fingers as shown.
This shows the back of the head with curls lined up across in a straight row. Continue gluing curls till you get all the way around to the other side of the face.
