37 Gorgeous Barbie Hairstyles You Should Create ASAP

When the Barbie movie premiered and took the world by storm, I was taken back to a time in my girlhood. Then, I had this glass baby doll with lush hair that always got me trying out different Barbie hairstyles on it.

That’s one of the most exciting things about owning a Barbie doll—the beautiful hair they come with. Unfortunately, my doll didn’t live as long as I’d have loved it to. It broke and shattered to the ground, leaving my puerile heart in pain. But while I had it, I never failed to style my doll’s luscious tresses into different hairstyles like updos, slick-backs, etc.

If you’re like me, it was probably the same for you: running around with your little fingers clinging on to your baby doll’s hair. Phew! Enough of the nostalgia—the good old childhood days are gone. But that doesn’t mean you still can’t play around with Barbie hairstyles—not with a doll’s hair this time around, but with your own hair.

That’s what I’ll show you how to do. In this article, we’ll explore stylish and easy-to-install Barbie hairstyles so you can effortlessly switch up your look from plain Jane to gorgeous Margot.

Truly, Barbie dolls have been an iconic part of the toy industry for generations. They’ve captivated the hearts of millions of girl-children, inspiring future fashion leaders and creativity. It’s no surprise that Barbie hairstyles are getting traction on social media.

Up until now, kids still pick Barbie dolls based on their hair color, type, or length instead of their weight. This is because while Barbie dolls’ weights stay the same size, you can switch up their hair anytime. From ponytails to updos, bangs, low buns, straight hair, loose curls, etc., you’ve got different options to choose from. But don’t think these hairstyles are for the toys alone. You, too, can recreate them and get that stunning, dreamy look.

Let’s check them out.

For a playful and edgy look, wear a chic bun. To achieve it, divide your (doll’s) hair into a high pigtail and twist it into a bun. Then, secure it with tiny rubber bands. But if you don’t want a single bun, make it double using the same process. The bun is a fun coiffure that never goes out of style.

What You Need to Get the Perfect Barbie Hairstyles

Like any coiffure, you need the right procedures to recreate these hairstyles. Here are the ones to start with:

Proper Tools and Accessories

Invest in combs and hairbrushes to comb and detangle your hair. Also, use hairpins, elastics, headbands, scrunchies, bows, clips, and other accessories, as they’ll be helpful in installing and styling your hairdo.

Hairstyling Products

Get a blow-dryer, curling iron, or flat iron, as you’ll need them to blow out, curl, or straighten your hair, depending on your chosen style. While using the heat-styling tool, keep it at low heat lest it should damage your hair.

Also, use a volumizing spray and a dry shampoo to add volume to your hairstyle. And don’t forget to apply a mousse to your hair to create more definition and tame stray strands.

Water Spritz

When styling your Barbie hairstyle, keep a small spray bottle filled with water handy. Spritz a little water on your hair as you go to tame flyaways and make styling easier.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or creating fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
