I am wanting to make a doll for my granddaughters. How ever I would love to see the back of the head for the hair. You tutorial is very helpful to me. I would love to see how you do the hair on your doll front and back.
Thank you

To Rhoda.
I put the side hair and spread the bunch from side to back, then glue it on the head.
There are long yarns on the back of her head.
