About Erica

image of Erica smilingMy name is Erica Lin and I am a graphic designer for a well known agency in the Washington, D.C. area. I enjoy customizing Fashion Royalty and Barbie dolls and I also enjoy painting. I have been a graphic designer for over 20 years and now plan to expand my art into photography of dolls.

I started collecting barbie dolls in 2003 and Fashion Royalty dolls in 2005. I’ve always loved barbie dolls ever since childhood and would often cut all of the hair off of my dolls in an attempt to be a doll hairstylist. I guess after so many bald dolls and hair mistakes, I finally found my love of styling doll hair. Now I cut, reroot, style and braid custom styles for my dolls. I have been rerooting both barbie and Fashion Royalty dolls for over two years now and currently taking commissions for reroots. If you would like to see more of my work please check out my instagram: http://www.instagram.com/cutieerica

I would like to you for visiting my personal website and I hope you have a great day!

  1. Hi Erica,

    I came across your doll work on Pinterest: your work is amazing. Are you on Instagram? You should be if you aren’t.

    I’m looking for help in getting box braids on one of my dolls. I run an ongoing IG account using one of my dolls at http://www.instagram.com/india_maylor so you can get a sense of my work.

    Do you – or know anyone – that does custom box braids-based hair work for a Barbie doll? Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
