50th Anniversary Hair Fair Barbie Repro Doll

At the GAW convention in April Bill Greening unveiled his latest repro doll, the 50th Anniversary Barbie Hair Fair. She was an instant hit and is the first repro Mod Era Barbie repro for some time. I’m not sure why she is being pitched as a “vintage repro of this popular doll” when the original was a replacement head and wig set and was never sold as a doll. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. However, having said all that, she is actually rather wonderful!

50th Anniversary Hair Fair Barbie Repro Doll Original

The original 1967 Hair Fair Barbie

Hair Fair Barbie repro is dressed in a reproduction of the popular and Mod-est of Mod outfits, the 1967 Sunflower #1683. The outfit will include hot pink shoes and the earrings and bracelet accessories.

Here is the blurb from the official sneak peak:

In the late 1960s, the hot trend was hair! From big hair to ever-changing hairstyles, even Barbie® embraced this mod fashion trend in 1967. She’s hard to come by for vintage collectors, but soon you’ll be able to get a 50th Anniversary Barbie™ Hair Fair Doll reproduction for your collection!

The Hair Fair Barbie Repro will be available later this month from The Barbie Collection and will retail for $50.

 

So what do you think of the Hair Fair Barbie repro? Will you be one of the first to order her?
