INFRINGE visited Rafinah Silva, the founder of The Royal Dolls, in his studio in São Paulo where he allowed us a glimpse into his doll makeover process, and surprised us with adorable doll-sized INFRINGE merch. Silva takes dated Barbie dolls and the likes, and gives them major modern hair makeovers including tape in extensions, colour, cuts, blowouts and styling. With an array of tools, ranging from small dye applicator brushes to minuscule curling irons, he demonstrates hair and wig-making skills that speak for themselves. Silva also remoulds and repaints doll versions of known figures like Lady Di or Emma Watson, and even offers a private commission service for customised dolls.
