Monster High Hair Matches

Hello everyone! This is Shannon, owner of Retro Dolls US. NoNapTime has invited me to share a few articles and tutorials on different things about customizing, so I thought I’d pop in and say hello 🙂

One of the most frequent questions regarding customizing MH dolls I get asked is the amount of hanks needed to root a doll. I suggest using 3 standard hanks of hair. The last doll I haired, I used 2 full hanks and about 1/4 of a 3rd. It really depends on how thick you hair the doll.

Another question I’m asked a lot is…hair color matches. Now most of these colors are in Nylon- which is more typically used for My Little Ponies. Monster High tends to have either Saran (majority) or Kanekalon in their dolls. We’ll go over the different types of hair and how to use them later 😉

The first up is Venus with RDUS Parakeet Nylon and RDUS Hot Pants Nylon. Parakeet is a darker/medium jewel toned green, you may get a closer match with our match for Jinafire which is RDUS Grasshopper Nylon.















Hopefully you find this helpful in your customizing adventures!!! If you have any questions, please feel free to get ahold of me 🙂
Talk to you soon!

    1. A lot of rerooters seem to prefer Nylon. I think it has a lot to do with a better color variety compared to Saran that’s available. There’s a very limited amount of colors in Saran compared to Nylon that are available to hobbyists.
