AD. When I was growing up I always dreamed of the day that I would have my very own styling head. My sister had one and I never got to play with it. Sad times. Anyway, fast forward to adulthood and I’m able to shower my nieces and my own daughter with the gifts that I want to play with myself! Daisy has a play kitchen and we regularly have little picnics with our wooden picnic set. Recently I received this Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head and my niece was super excited to receive it and test it out!
As you can see the Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head is designed for you to flip the hair over and it goes from blonde to pink. Also, there are stencil clips included along with a marker that allows you to draw stencils on the blonde hair. These are simple for little people to use and there are several fun stencils including a heart, stars and a lady.
This is how the Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head comes when removed from the box. The styling head and accessories are really well packaged, so you’ll need to spend a few minutes unboxing. No tools were required but there were some parts to unscrew underneath. Also, Barbie’s hands were bound around her neck and her hair had several ties in. These were a little tricky to remove so I used scissors for this part.
This is how the Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head looks before the makeover has begun. I let my niece use her own imagination and the accessories that came with Barbie.
As you can see there are quite a few accessories. There is a hair extension, hair stencils, a color-changing marker, foils, a jug, a brush, hair ties, stickers, nail extensions and more. The accessories are pretty good quality and the only downside was that the marker took quite a bit of effort to use initially. This was because I hadn’t noticed the instructions in the bottom of the box, so was really user error rather than poor product.
Here is a close up look at the nails, once fitted. Now I helped do these and still they don’t look 100%. Still, this is a children’s toy and my niece had great fun fitting the nails and making over Barbie.
Here is a look at the finished Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head makeover. It was great fun and best of all Barbie can really be made over again and again.
The Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head comes with 19 pieces, which is fantastic. I love that it comes fully assembled. The accessories include a wearable hair extension which is super fun! My niece seemed to enjoy this aspect the most. The Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head is suitable for ages 3+. My niece is 8 and she still found this really fun and has been having a great time playing with it.
Barbie’s hair can be changed from blonde to pink simply by flipping her hair to reveal the pink hair underneath. When playing with Barbie’s parting it gives a different effect each time. Whether her hair goes into a simple ponytail, a plait or a simple side-parting it looks fantastic! The little play accessories, the colour mixing bowl, foils and mixing brush are great fun to use when adjusting Barbie’s hair.
My niece really enjoyed the accessories that came with the Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head. The stickers in particular! You can buy the Barbie Flip Reveal Styling Head from Argos – the RRP is £39.99.
