I have had my Julie for about 2 years now and she is gorgeous. Her eye/hair combination is very pretty. I cannot get over her silky, long blonde hair which is easy to style and stunning. I removed her braid and because that section of hair was kinky, I used a flat iron on a low temperature on it and it's now just as smooth and straight as the rest of her hair. I have chosen to keep my Julie historical but I'm sure she'd look good more modern, too. Overall, a lovely, photogenic doll.
