What is your go to source for pony hair?
« on: January 16, 2018, 03:35:26 PM »
It's literally been like 6 years since I last bought any hair for re-rooting, and back then the only choices were Dolly Hair and Retro Dolls US.  I've ordered from both, like both, but are they still the "go to" source?  I remember Dolly Hair being great for nylon and Retro offering a lot of other options.

Have other online sellers popped up with QUALITY hair in the recent years?  Where do you purchase your pony hair?

I purchase my hair from My Little Customs. They're based in the U.K but ship worldwide

Still Dollyhair for me.  RetroDolls is great but I want exact G1 matches and I don't think RDUS has quite all of them yet.  But their polypropylene stock is drool-worthy!

be careful, Dollyhair has in recent years been the subject of some scrutiny...not everyone has issues but sometimes they can be incommunicative. I personally had to file a paypal claim with them for "incorrect advertising" when shorted on a hank or two, and even that took forever to process because the owner of dollyhair simply ignores or does not respond to emails anymore in my experience...

Just do a search in the trader classifieds too for "dollyhair" if you want more examples...:D

I think RetroDolls and Dollyhair still have the most selection for very similar prices.

Dollyhair has had issues in the past with customer service...  but I ordered some doll hair recently (they had the exact match I needed) and although I never got an email confirmation or tracking number- my package did arrive just fine after a while.

Either DollyHair or My Little Customs :)

It depends on what colours I need and who has it in stock ;)

I only have experience with MyLittleCustoms, but it was a good one. =) She replies to you quickly and carefully manages your order.

RetroDolls or Dollplanet (I buy from their eBay store). I stay as far away from DollyHair as possible.

My favourite ones are retrodolls.uk (in case they have a matching hair color for the DH ones), Thefloatingsle (German Page for DH) and then DH itself.

What about tinsel? I don't normally work with tinsel, but need it for an upcoming project. Where do you find that?

Also, Sulky metallic embroidery thread works great!

Aha, I've had to order some from some stores and some from others! I had to get that white to purple hair from MyLittleCustoms, but I've also gotten some hair from RestoreDoll. I've deliberately avoided Dollyhair due to the poor service testimonials.
