As per request, here's a few hairstyles...I couldn't come up with too too many different looks, but I don't have any butterfly clips, and I imagine they would be useful on a doll with short hair like this too.
She has a pretty good amount of short hairs in her wig, so she looks nice with it parted in the back. Yay!
I just purchased a 36 as well, and my wig looks the same. In my opinion, the wig is actually designed like this to hide the seam for the bangs. The extra-long bangs right at the part are cut from the rest of the wig and should be brushed over to cover this spot.
This seems to be the case. Whereas most of the AG wigs with bangs go straight down, hers seem to fan out from her part.
My #36 got here yesterday, and this is what her part looks like. It actually looks worse in person than in the photo.
There is also a small piece of hair that is too short to fit in the pigtails she came in. I think her hair looks a lot nicer with that piece covering the wig cap also.
Here is a picture of her with Nellie for a bang comparison.
Hmmm... well I guess I'll see what I get when she arrives back home from the hospital! Another question for those of you who have her, how obvious is the wig cap? With my girl it was VERY obvious and it she also had some shorter hairs that looked like they had actually been cut where the break in the bang/hair line is. The chunk of wig cap on mine just looked terrible. Even my DH who isn't terribly observant with my dolls said it looked like a defect to him... so we shall see what happens. Here's another closer pic of the wig cap that I took before I shipped her to the doll hospital.
I also agree that she looks much better with the shorter piece of hair in the front.
