Zoe has been doing her own hair and she uses a Barbie book we use that was purchased at a local used book store. She can put her own hair in a bun, pony tail and she can also braid her own hair. I unpacked my old crimper that I use to use when I was in highschool so I used it on her and knew she'd get a kick out of it. I think it looks great. She loved it!
