Question of the Week: All About Hairs

We all have different preferences. I fell in love with Blythe primarily because of all those fantasy coloured hairs (red, yellow, blue, green) and yet the only fantasy haired dolls that I have are Simply Peppermint and Cappuccino Chat. So it turns out that my preferences actually go towards the not-so-fantastical (or maybe this just means that I need to expand my doll collection…?). This week question is all about hair:

What were your doll hair preferences like prior to you starting to collect Blythe? And what colour(s) dominate your Blythe collection now?

And for those that also happen to have customized Blythes…

Do you have a preference for mohair over alpaca? Or how about saran over nylon?

    Before I collected Blythe red hair and black hair were my favourites. But I am a sucker for fantasy hair, especially blue! I don’t own a blue-haired girl right now but I regret parting with my Candy Carnival! I do have fantasy hair girls though, Simply Mango and a custom girl with rit dyed deep reddish pink hair!

    When I started collecting Blythe, I thought, okay, so these dolls have giant heads, obviously they aren’t realistic. But I’m not going to go totally crazy– I’ll keep it as normal as possble, and only have blonds and brunettes, no rainbow colors. LOL. Now, I’m totally obsessed with bright candy colors, especially blue and pink! Blythe takes me by the hand and drags me out of my comfort zone over and over again! 🙂

    And I’d love, love, love to have a mohair girl one day! They are gorgeous!

    I always wanted chocolatey brown hair as a kid…but I don’t have any brown hairs yet! My girls are an array of ‘normal colored hair’ but my favorite, grail girl (that I own now!) is a blondie Mondie! I also adore blonde kenners…something about blonde haired dolls from my Barbie-overloaded childhood, methinks.

    When I started with Blythe I only liked natural-haired girls.

    I got the Simply Mango/Guava pair to customize, but once I got them I fell in love with their hairs and couldn’t cut them!

    Now I am working on a blue-haired custom, and I think I will end up with slightly more fantasy girls than natural.

    I love red hair, but I only have one red-haired girl. I keep thinking if I buy another redhead the first one will get jealous!

    And I also love the dark brunette colors, especially MWS.

    But fantasy girls are definitely ahead by a “hair”. ;}
