|Pick out the wig with a bamboo skewer.|
Mohair is a type of wool, so if you have to actually wash the wig you can use cold water, not hot water because it will felt the mohair. If you have to wash the wig you will first have to remove it from the composition doll. You can't soak the wig off, but if the wig was applied properly a rubber-cement type of adhesive was used. You can poke your skewer under the wig cap to crumble the adhesive and gently pull the wig off. The wash it, set it with curlers, and let it dry before you reattach it. Always use mucilage or rubber cement to apply a wig to a composition doll, not regular glue, so it can be removed if needed.

|Pincurl the wig.|
Either using the tiniest perm rods or bobby pins roll the hair into pincurls. I prefer the bobby pin method because it was the fashionable method during the period these dolls were produced and it is how the wigs would have been originally set.
