Seeing Pigmy Will’s post about curlers reminded me of a picture I took about a year ago. I had been working on a photo project with some of my friends to take a photograph of a toy every day in an interesting way. I had my hair up in curlers and was looking for an idea, thus the Barbie Doo was born.
I put some vintage Barbie doll heads in with my hair and that ended up being my toy photograph for the day, in addition to making me look pretty awesome. The response was pretty good, it might have been my most popular photo.
EXCELLENT SHOT!!! Brilliant use of Barbie heads!!!

Holy moly! It kinda has that medusa barbie look about it! Cool idea! I love it!
I love this!
You have gorgeous hair!
Great post… This is so cool!!!
Would they be great attached to a headband to slip on, like they are doing now w/the flower and feathers headbands?
That would be a cool idea, might be kind of expensive with vintage dolls, but I could totally see doing it with cheap dollar store heads, too.
Any of your Barbie ideas would be welcome here…
Wow! That had to take some work. I would run into a kiosk if I saw someone at the mall with dolls in their hair like that!
It took me a while to get it right, every time I moved they were falling out all over the place.
Thanks everyone for the comments and thanks Allee for the Classique d’ Camembert!!
Wow – you’re the Mt. Rushmore of Barbie!
Barbie gives good head. Who knew?
Fantastic, makes me want to pull all the heads off my Barbies…
love the picture!:)
