Has anyone had problems styling her hair? I just got my 38, Meggie yesterday. After much searching,I picked one with thinner bangs. when I took her hair out out of the ponytails,I noticed her hair is THICK. So thick, I'm not satisfied with any hairstyles I've done so far. She has short little hairs at the bottom of her wig, and some about 1/3 of the way down her wig, hidden near the scalp. Which makes any high ponytail or updo look funny on the sides (from the front, it makes her head look squarish, not smooth and round). Also, the bottom of her hair looks great when down, but looks awful and choppy when in one ponytail! It is so uneven that I cannot do a proper bun without having half the hair sticking out all over the place. It also has one tiny place at the base of her head where a few strands are glued to her neck, however I think I could easily fix that.
Anyone else have this problem? I love her face, hair color and bangs but I hate her wig! Could this be a wig defect? I'm afraid that I'll get a doll with thick bangs if I were to have her head replaced.
I didn't think she'd have the "middle of the head short hairs" like Kirsten for split hairstyles, either. That was part of the reason I wanted a new doll, so I wouldn't have that type of thing (although its not as severe as Kirsten's is).
I'm sorry to hear about Meggie's wig issue, I hope you are able to get it resolved. I still really want #38 but I plan on leaving her hair in pigtails. Does the back of the wig look odd when her hair is in pigtails?

I thought this wasn't a must have item since it's only worn under the doll clothes, but I finally purchased two just to complete my NOLA collection. I have to say that I love this set! I ended up buying two more. One for addy and one to display on a dress form. The crinoline makes the Nola outfits fill out nicely and does just as much magic for Addy's wardrobe.

Here are a few photos of the two dolls sharing the bed.
As you can see, two dolls fit snugly side by side and the blanket is still able to cover both dolls. This bed is a lot bigger and heavier than I thought it would be. It is also a very solid piece and will handle rough play.
