    Entrapta's Hairstyle...please help.

    So, I got an Entrapta with hair in great condition, but it was in pigtails, braided. I separated them and washed the hair...but I have no idea how to recreate the original style. The twists are easy enough, but how is it styled at the top?

    I know there's an elastic around all the hair before it separates into the two separate twists. Is it braided on top of her head? I can't find many good pictures. Please help me. Entrapta's resting awkwardly so her hair colours don't mix. lol

    heya! i have successfully restyled every style in the pop-line... i'll take some pictures so you can see close-up how her hair looks. if you are still unsuccessful, i'm more than willing to style her for you, if you'd be willing to ship her to me and pay for shipping her back to you.

    i'll try to get those pictures up here tonight.

    Thanks LadyAngora. I think I'll be able to do it myself, I just need to figure out HOW it's done. lol The pictures will be very useful. Thanks.

    jill here...

    i'm at work so this is from memory, if anything sounds really off ladyA feel free to jump in with better details!

    put the pink hair in a ponytail right on top of her head in the center.

    look at entrapta face on, split the pink and purple hair into two equal halves, one for each twist. you should have 4 strands of hair, 2 pink, 2 purple.

    cross the purple strands like an X so that the half on the right will be in the left twist and vice versa.

    here's where it gets tricky. whichever side you choose to do first, take the purple strand and circle around the pink strand from the outside (ears) to the inside (eyebrows). when both sides are done, you should have 2 purple strands running down the center of her face.

    strand on the left, tuck under the X strand on the left. right strand, tuck under X strand on the right. basically, you are making a complete circle around the pink strand.

    pull tight so all the hair is smooth, fix any bumps or obvious bald patches you have. you may need to start over and divide the hair differently to cover them, it depends on how much hair your doll still has lol.

    now point the purple strands towards her back, and pull the pink strands down over the top. twist the purple from the back over the pink towards the front of the doll. continue until the twist is done, and rubberband the two strands together.

    hopefully i didn't forget any major instructions!

    Thank you very much for the step-by-step instructions. They were very helpful. I have finished fixing her hair....and it took me HOURS (literally). lol I kept re-doing it because pink strands would get stuck in the purple all the time. What a NIGHTMARE. lol

    I'm very happy with how it looks. I'm not 100% positive it looks exactly like it's supposed to, but I'm still happy.

    Thanks Jill!

    Here are pictures of her:





    Here's an image of another Entrapta for comparison:

    Thanks LadyA! That's okay, it was mighty nice of you to take those pics. They might help someone else trying to figure it out.

    There is one thing you could help me out with. I recently got a Bubble Power She-Ra with no accessories, and I found all the materials to make her clothes. Would it be possible to make a pattern like you did for Spinnerella, Shower Power Catra and Silver Storm? Whenever you have time, I realize it's the holidays. lol

    By the way, I HAVE started my custom Spinny clothes. I just need to get to the fabric store so I can finish them up. They look great so far though. When I'm finished I'll send pictures and you can post them on your site, seeing as I used your pattern.

    that would be fabulous! i can't wait to see your spinny clothes.

    as for bubble power she-ra, i can do that, but the holidays will prevent me from doing it promptly! lol!

    here's those entrapta hair pictures, though!

    Reviving this old thread.

    VERY helpful on Entrapta. I've used this page a few times for re-doing several Entraptas I've bought over the years.

    I was curious though....

    Can anybody, Lady A or Markatisu, explain, or show pictures on how to re-do Perfuma and Mermista's hair styles? They look easy enough, but i haven't been able to do them right myself, and I need help.

    Also, I just recently achieved my last MOTU/POP holey grail, and finally got a Spinnerella. And She has GREAT hair, but it's not in the original style.... Any pics, or explanations on how to redo it, would be AMAZING!!!!!

    Thank you SO much!!!!!

    There are closeup front and back hairstyle pictures for both Mermista and Perfuma here (although not with instructions):

    There are also a lot of suggestions on how to restore the curly hairstyles, including Spinnerella.
    Hope that helps!
