Do you remember Girl’s World growing up?
I remember I used to love mine and would spend hours styling her hair and doing her make-up.
Eliza is now 8 and is at the age where she is starting to care about and experiment with her appearance, so when we were invited to review the brand new I’M A STYLIST Styling Head – Lucy, from I’M A GIRLY, I knew she was going to love it.
The 33-cm tall beautiful styling head comes with earrings, hair accessories,
self-adhesive gemstones for the face and magnetic eyelashes.
The first thing that struck me when we took the styling head out of the box is that it is larger than other styling heads and has broader features, making it easier to work with.
Eliza has had Disney Princess styling heads before and their hair as been quite sparse, making styling difficult, whereas I’M A STYLIST has a good amount of hair to work with.
Also available are the signature I’M A GIRLY interchangeable wigs in a variety of colours, so the soft hair can be easily exchanged for different shades, textures and looks, allowing kids to style and even cut it. The wig comes with a handy stand for easy storage.
Eliza started off with a simple look of bunchies and applying the gems to the dolls face.
Because the I’M A STYLIST head’s hair is nice and long, and you can secure it to table using suction cups, it is perfect for practising different hairstyles on, including plaits.
Eliza looked up how to do a fishtail plait on youtube and followed the instructions.
It wasn’t a bad attempt for a first go!
Also in the box are magnetic eyelashes, which are easy to apply on the doll for a really “wow” effect.
To change the wig, loosen the elastic at the back of the head and pull it out of the notch that runs all the way around the dolls head.
Insert the new wig with the elastic at the back of the next into the notch and hold the wig at the back and pull the front part over the top of the product
until the rubber band is fully placed in the notch.
To secure it, simply tie together the strings at the back and her hair is ready to style.
These Styling heads are for perfect for children aged 3 – 15 and have an RRP of £89. Wigs cost from £23.
I can see ours being used for years to come.
