1. You’re right Hair Fair was only a blonde or brunette doll head with hairpieces and sometimes a wig. I have a brunette head but its skintone doesn’t match any vintage Barbie body I’ve had so I wonder on which one kids back then were supposed to put those.

      Thanks for that Maricha. Glad to know I am not going mad! Interesting to hear about the skin tone issue. Was your MIP?

      1. Sorry it took so long to answer, I thought I was subscribed to replies and comments but I guess not :-(.
        I ended up with a brunette Hair Fair head when I bought a lot of vintage Barbie clone dolls and clothes. I recognized it from looking at books about Barbie.(Probably the Best of Barbie) It wasn’t MIP but had obviously never been put on a body, I had to poke out a bit of vinyl to start trying her on different ones. It’s very pretty. Pretty enough that I’ll buy a reproduction since it will have a body, if there’s a brunette version.

          No problem Maricha 🙂

          I think there is sufficient demand that they could do a brunette version and she would fly off the (virtual) shelf, LOL!

  2. I’m very excited about this doll. The first vintage doll ever bought was a Hair Fair head on a Francie body wearing mellow yellow for $10. I wish I had just kept her that way. But, eventually I put the right head on the right body, got a a Francie head, blah blah blah. But I remember how excited I was find a vintage Barbie doll at a crappy flea market. I had never held a vintage Barbie in my hands as an adult. I had been collecting the Barbie collector cards from 1990 and with the purchase of this doll, I made the plunge!

      I’m so excited too and very much looking forward to seeing her IRL. I think TBC have got this repro very right. You got a bargain with your $10 hybrid!
