Remove your doll’s head along with as much of its original hair as possible. Use tweezers to remove stubborn sections from inside the neck-hole. Hole patterns on the head determine the doll’s hairstyle, and can be altered for different hairdos. Select a few hanks of hair, and lay them aside. Longer is better: remember that the final length is half of the hank half the strand (so a 12-inch strand of hair will be only 6 inches after rerooting.)
4. Tie a knot. Tie a knot at the end of the hair. Cut off the needle, then tie the loose hair-ends into a tight knot.
Now you have mastered the Knot Method! This is not my favorite method, because it takes forever! However, it is useful if you do not have a reroot tool. To see what Ethan looked like once he was finished, check out my Makeovers Page!
