Does anyone know how to hair swap?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Long story short, I would like to learn how to swap hair on two heads to allow for more options. (Im planning to buy two sota Ken masters figures, which would have two heads each: short hair, normal face and long hair, angry face) If this goal is accomplished, I could have two additional alternate heads. (short hair, angry and long hair normal)

Any advice?

For those unsure of what I mean, refer to vintage.toystobasco's Terry bogard custom which uses Ken head and Vega hair.

You'll need to heat the hair you're removing, then slowly try to pull it off, there will be glue underneath that you may need to cut through with a sharp hobby knife. Just keep heating and pulling but be gentle or you'll rip the hair. Should just be able to glue it straight onto the other head. You may need to do some sanding on the head where the hair has been removed just to get any remaining glue off.
