This is a listing for a PDF instructions on how to root a reborn doll's hair (doll not included). Featuring step-by-step, full-color instructions, and over 50 pages long, this will walk you through everything from choosing your needle and selecting your mohair to exactly how to root a reborn baby's head.

Whether you're a beginning artist, or an artist who would simply like to improve their techniques, this tutorial offers not just the information found in the tutorial, but ongoing support with me if other questions come up after reading the tutorial.

You can see a few of the many babies I have rooted on my website:, and under the "custom rooting" tab, you'll see some of the many, many heads that I have custom rooted for people. I also offer a free painting tutorial on my website.

In this tutorial, I use one doll as a main model, showing everything I did and how to do it, but I also include lots of pictures and directions for other hairstyles, including bald spots, a head of very fine hair, a head of thick hair, different hairlines, and so much more! Special attention is given to rooting those coveted "baby-fine" hairs around the hairline, and how to get a beautiful swirl that is actually directionally rooted into place, not simply brushed into a swirl.

I have been a reborn artist since 2008, done several prototypes and won several awards, and now I'm delighted to get the chance to share what I've learned by trial and error all in a nice, neat package, something I wish I had when I first started out! I love rooting, and nothing is better than a silky head of hair that swirls perfectly. It has always been one of my favorite parts of reborning, and I hope that after reading this tutorial, it will be for you too!

It was a good tutorial in a format I liked best. I do wish I would have got replies from seller when I messaged. But in the end I went ahead and purchased anyway. This tutorial covered directional crown rooting and includes lots of full color pictures. It does not include rooting eyelashes or eyebrows or anything else. Worth $18?—idk, but hey, my first ever rooting ever came out really well, especially the crown—so maybe it is.

I am very pleased with my purchase! Andrea has created a very informative tutorial that is worded very well and has many photos to show the process, so it is easy to follow and understand. I would definitely recommend this to beginners, and even to those who are experienced but need a little boost in their rooting technique. Well done!
