Barbie arrived home today after a revitalizing spa vacation in California. Below is a "before" photo of Barbie showing her slightly orange dyed hair, that I trimmed when I was about 7 years old. I never even noticed how bad her lips looked and that half of one eyebrow was missing. She also looks a little anemic.

And here you can see Barbie's transformation. Her hair has been completely restored and styled back into it's original ponytail. She has been completely cleaned and now shows off new lipstick, fingernail polish, blush and an eyebrow touchup. Isn't she beautiful?

Here you can see Barbie has new earrings and her skin looks like it is glowing. Her bangs are original but the rest of her hair is new.

Didn't Krista do a wonderful job on my Barbie? You can see many other Barbies that she has restored on her website. You can identify your Barbie on her website along with purchasing vintage clothing or new dolls that she creates.

I think she turned out beautifully. Now I need to find the perfect vintage dress to complete the restoration!
