I am really chuffed to have been featured in our local newspaper this week, so exciting! Even more exciting for me was that my 2 favourite Blythe girls took center stage! 😀

I haven’t had chance to scan the article onto my computer yet however, you can read it online here and see how it looks in the paper from this quick photograph I took on my phone – look how lovely and big the photo of Christmas (Rainy Day Parade) and Tuppence (Miss Sally Rice) is!

Christmas & Tuppence are well chuffed at being in the newspaper!

I was very nervous about the interview and completely freaked out when the Head of Content wanted to send a photographer around to my house to photograph me with my dolls! Needless to say, I politely declined the photographer offer and sent across some of my own pics LOL I am fairly sure everyone involved with the article thinks I am completely potty!!

So many people have complimented the article that all my fears as to, how I would come across, what spin would be put on it and whether or not I would be portrayed as a crazy lady, have been put to rest 😀

I would like to thank Robert Zarywacz (@RobertZ) for the time he put into the article and for contacting me in the first place!

With all my excitement, I have completely neglected the My Little Customs Birthday Celebration Promotions and so, to make it up to you, how about a double whammy over the weekend? 15% off all Saran hair and a surprise FREE GIFT when you spend £16 or more!!

To claim the 15% off, enter the coupon code:  YAY15  at the checkout 😀

I am super duper excited, I have been approached with a great offer and of course, I was thrilled to say YES!!

What offer I hear you cry? Well, I am proud to say that, after many weeks, I can officially announce that: katsilkdealer

My Little Customs is the Sole UK & European Authorised Katsilk Distributor

*XL Format sized saran? What is this? This, ladies and gents, is another brilliant product which is brand new and literally just arrived with me this morning!

  • My Little Customs is now stocking XL Format sized saran. As I am rather over excited today, I will be adding this to the site at a special introductory price of a mere £7 per pack!

Do you need someone to re-root your doll for you? Fed up of getting hair in a tangle, glue everywhere and stabbing yourself with needles? Then look no further!

My Little Customs.com has teamed up with Fleur Dolls.com to bring you a brand new reroot commission service!

Do you girls look like this?

The poor things – they need help!

Not sure where to turn? Never fear, Fleur Dolls is here!

But my doll is not a Fleur!!

Don’t panic! Fleur is not the only type of doll who can benefit from these talents!

Champagne blonde sindy reroot Glacier Misty Reroot golden sand white choc nylon Tammy reroot

We can currently offer the following services:

  • Nylon hair reroots*
  • Saran hair reroots*
  • Polypropylene hair reroots*
  • Eyelash reroots

* full head reroot or highlights, restoration or complete new colour.

You can also choose from different reroot methods, depending on your personal requirements.

Tool and Glue

A very quick method which only takes a few hours per doll. When the reroot is finished, the hair is secured on the inside using special glue. This method is completely safe and secure, once dry the hair can be brushed and styled as normal.

Knot Method

Most people prefer the knot method although it takes much longer. The hair plugs are individually knotted from the inside and no glue is used. Equally safe for washing, brushing and styling.

Prices start from:

Tool and Glue – £30

Knot Method – £40

Eyelashes – free with any reroot!

Please note, the above prices are a guide based on a Fleur / Sindy sized doll requiring 2 packs of reroot hair, please contact us with your requirements for an individual tailored quote. All prices are in GBP. 

FAQ’s

  • Can you reroot my Barbie / Sindy / Tammy / Patch / Pippa / Gail / Daisy / any other dolly not listed here?

Yes! Any doll can be rerooted using the above methods, the main difference which will affect cost will be regarding the time and amount of hair needed based on your girls head size and amount of hair plugs! Please contact us to discuss your requirements and to receive your individually tailored quote 😀

 

  • My doll is only missing a few plugs, can you save her?

Yes! We have nearly 200 different colours of hair to choose from so should be able to provide a close, if not exact, match for your dolls original hair.

 

  • Can you do more than one colour in her hair?

Yes! Anything is possible! Please contact us to discuss your requirements and to receive your individually tailored quote 😀

 

  • Can I see some more examples of Fleur Dolls work?

Of course! Many photos can be seen in the Re-Root Gallery here on the My Little Customs blog, or alternatively, you can view her album of reroots on Flickr.

Evening everyone,

I am thrilled to finally announce that the polypropylene hair is now in stock!

I am stupidly excited to have a BRAND NEW stock line, I am a hair addict 😀

I am sure you all have many questions about the polypropylene and I will do my best to answer them.

PP colour range

 

What is polypropylene?

Polypropylene looks and feels exactly the same as Nylon, if I called it Nylon you wouldn’t know it was anything different! (All apart from 4 colours, I shall get to those in a little while)

I have not yet had a chance to properly “play” with it so am going purely on how it feels straight from the packet, alongside the “official” spiel about the Polypropylene.

The colours are AMAZING, really unusual and unique. They are just as soft and shiny as the Nylon so I promise you will love it!

 

Can Polypropylene be boil permed?

The “official” answer: 99% sure that yes it can. Toy manufacturers curl it and style it all the time so if they can do it, so can we! Factory styling is always done using heat.

My personal answer:I have not yet tried it as it has literally just arrived with me, I have only got as far as fawning over the colours and photographing it. This weekend I am planning to do a reroot with it at which point I shall try both methods of curling, both air drying and boil perming. I shall report back with photos and results shortly!

 

Can I reroot using both Nylon and Polypropylene on the same doll? Yes 🙂

 

If I reroot the same doll using both Nylon and Polypropylene together, can I boil perm it? Again, 99% yes, both Nylon and Polypropylene should react the same way, however, I have yet to put this to the test!

 

Can I request a blend of a Nylon colour with a Polypropylene colour? Yes! You can blend the 2 types of hair together, that is not a problem.

 

OK, what about the 4 colours you mentioned earlier?

This is based on my first impression, this may change once I have had a play with the hair!

The 4 matte colours, Caliente, Daring, Hypnotic and Frivolous feel slightly different to the rest of the Polypropylene range.

They are heavier and have a slight greasy feeling, similar to Saran. However, the fibres are a little drier, perhaps a slightly heavier denier? If you have tried Pinky Pinky or Nitro Lime Saran you will understand what I mean!

These 4 colours are the only ones which I would say are not EXACTLY like the Nylon, although the colours are fab and the quality of the hair is second to none 🙂

Right well, all this is purely my personal first impression, the quality seems exceptional and I am impressed with the Polypropylene 😀

Expect further updates soon and I hope you are all as excited as I am about having the Polypropylene as a new addition to the My Little Customs line!
