Getting creative with I'm a Stylist styling head

Creative boys


*This is a paid review post in collaboration with Britmums and I'm a Girly

My boys will jump at any chance to get creative whether that be baking up edible treats in the kitchen, making a fort out of cardboard, painting, drawing or devising their own new board game, they love to try something new. My eldest also really enjoys anything to do with hair, as you may notice he himself has very long hair which is his pride and joy, I'm sure one day he will want to cut it but that's not for me to decide and I respect that completely. We have always had a very gender neutral home with regards to toys because I believe that all well-made toys should be enjoyed freely without pre-conceived ideas of who they are meant for so while my boys play with things like lego and Hotwheels they also have dolls, prams and wooden cleaning sets, so when I told them that we were getting a I'm a Stylist styling head to review they were very excited.

I don't think they could get it out of the box quick enough and then laying out all the accessories that go along with the I'm a Stylist head, excitedly talking about what they had planned for her. My first impressions were how well made the head is and how realistic the hair falls and feels. This offers the perfect platform for children to start experimenting with hairstyles and different looks without causing any damage to their own hair while still sparking that creative feel when it comes to expressing yourself.

So what are the main features of I'm a Stylish styling head?


  1.  Full-sized 33cm styling head 
  2.  Magnetic eyelashes that are easy to apply
  3. A removable and washable top
  4. Cool accessories such as face gems, earrings and hair clips
  5. Suction cups on the bottom giving the head extra stability
  6. Interchangeable high-quality wigs available in different colours, although these cost an additional £39. It does mean however if your child gets a little creative with haircuts the wig can easily be replaced 


With the head being 33cm, larger than similar products out there, it makes the head easier for kids to work with, even younger children such as my 4yr old. The boys were both really impressed with how realistic the hair felt and really enjoyed putting it up in different styles. Another big hit was the face jewels and accessories which they enjoyed apply and putting together a bit of a festival look.

The I'm a Stylish styling head is recommend for ages 8-15 although personally, I would say, with adult supervision due to small parts, that younger children can enjoy this as my youngest who is 4, loved brushing the hair and watching the face jewels go on. 

These styling heads currently retail at £89 which also includes magnetic lashes and accessories and yes while they are on the pricey side I would like to point out that they are very good quality and really made to last. I'm a Stylish styling head is currently available online and Harrods and Hamleys.

Made by the I'm a Girly brand, the brand promotes inclusivity and diversity and their products are aimed at both boys and girls with their Be A Girly dolls having natural proportions, diverse skin tones, hair colours and textures and their products are designed by a group of girls and boys ages 9 to 13 which make up their KIDS4KIDS panel
