Time for Pink Bubbles

Pink bubbles, happy bubbles.

Recently, Dolldom began noticing that several of its in-house supermodels were starting to show signs of fatigue. For example, a rubber band dried out and  -snap! - off came the bountiful factory ponytail. Or the fresh-out-of-the-box hairstyle resembled a rat's nest. Or perhaps the original factory style was rather bland. Perhaps, it was just simply time for a change. But were does one send supermodels to be refreshed? To Pink Bubbles Spa were attention to detail and mastery of technique reign supreme. The results are nothing short of breathtaking, satisfying Dolldom's desire for class, sass, and harmony of scale.

Pink Bubbles Doll Spa  is not only  “Rejuvenation Destination" but also one of the very best blogs on Wordpress. The behind the scenes stories and photos take its visitors back to the days when a beauty parlor was a realm of magical transformations. Each before and after story replicates the linguistic registers and idiomatic expressions of a time gone by but not forgotten by the diehard fans of vintage fashion dolls.

In this exclusive Dolldom feature, seven Barbie Fashion Model Collection dolls show their new styles. Dolldom believes that they are veritable mannequins de mode who can now wear the very best of mid-century inspired design. We hope that you enjoy the show and be inspired to give that special beauty in your collection a day of much needed pampering at Pink Bubbles Spa.

Dolldom thanks the spectacularly talented Bobby Taylor for being such a fantastic friend.

Chic. Very. Utterly. Finally.

BFMC Lingerie No. 6 has her titian tresses styled. Gone is the fly-away hair that impeded her from being part of the cannon of couture.

Cut and styled by Bobby Taylor at Pink Bubbles Spa, Lingerie No. 6 is a sweet delight.

Silkstone 2000 Debut. Delphine. Definitely. But in place of the original model, it is worn by BFMC's Lingerie No. 1 doll.

Her high ponytail is gone. In its place, an appropriate and classic chignon. Jewelry by Joy Jarred. A Barbie for forever.

50th Anniversary party? Absolutely. In James Bogue's basic black and a to-scale bun with braided wrap piece and a playful spit curl. That's Barbie style.

A style for all moments of the day. For all seasons.

Ball Gown Beauty. But even more beautiful when she goes for a Lunch at The Club. The debut fashion called for an assertive face and a style to match it.

A horror hair story when taken out of the box, this spectacular model gains stature and authority in Bobby Taylor's elegant style. 

That curl would drive Alfred Hitchcock wild.

 Another ponytail deterioration story, BFMC' Lingerie No. 3 becomes an icon.

And what about the groundbreaking Lingerie No. 2? With her brown eyes and brunette chignon, she's ready for a big platter chapeau. Earrings by Joy Jarred.

The hat perfectly fits atop her new and sanely scaled do.

Chinoiserie Red Moon boast one of the most unique face make-up designs, but perhaps the effect got lost beneath the towering ponytail with doughnut wrap. Now, the BFMC doll embodies the ideals of Dolldom's  sacrosanct three C's: chic, couture, and class.

With one of the collections' detailed rhinestone pins and a James Bogue cocktail dress, she becomes a divine creature.

    1. Thank you, Doll-Scum! I agree that the transformation of No. 6 is pretty dramatic. I'd say, go ahead and get one for cheap and send her to Pin Bubbles. Give in to temptation...

  4. What a great transformation! I wish I knew of them sooner as I struggled with my Silkstone Liz Taylor's hair for a year until I found someone to do her over. These hairstyles would be perfect for Gene, too.

  6. Thank you Ernesto for sending your girls to the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa! They were not only beautiful on the outside, but were gracious and lovely to all our staff. We wish them continued success as the "Mannequins Suprêmes" they've become in front of your camera's lens on the catwalks of Dolldom!

    1. Thank you, Jaël! Thank you for visiting and for your nice comment. Not everything that appears in Dolldom is part of Dolldom's collection, though. Some come for a visit only. These stayed!
