    How do you people do it?

    I'm done tons of research and seen very basic info on a few methods but none of it was particularly clear. A coiple methods just seemed cheap since pulling on the hair would remove it. The doll hair sewing machine method seems to difficult since I don't have a sewing machine and I'm not making full blown dolls.

    Any tips or tricks or links to faqs or guides would be much appreciated.

    "Rerooting" doll hair searches looks promising. Seems you can do it with needles and then pouring glue into the inside of the head to seal. The type of glue is important, but I wonder if epoxy wouldn't be stronger than glue?

    *Warning! Having loooong fake manicured nails painted in unicorn colors with lots of glitter, seems to be a prerequisite for the applicant!

    Thank you!

    That looks like something I can try for sure.
