Custom Ethnic Dolls by Karen Byrd
Founder, owner and designing artist of Natural Girls United, Karen Byrd has taken on the project of creating multicultural dolls that have a variety of natural hairstyles, including wavy, kinky, curly, coily hair, braids, locs, afros, afro puffs, and textured up-dos. She takes custom orders for dolls on her website.
”I have wanted to take-on the project of customizing dolls hair, to have the look and feel of styles, and textures of ethnic women and girls, for a long time.The Natural Girls United! project has turned into a business, and is something that I hope will help to bring a positive view of what ethnic beauty is. There is a serious need for our young girls to be able to have dolls that look like them. It is something that affects their self esteem and confidence, and how they fell about themselves. But each day we learn that it is important to show them and teach them that their beauty is beautiful.”
