Hair Fair Barbie 1967-1974
The Hair Fair Barbie #4042, #4043, and #4044 was never sold with a body. She only had a head, hair pieces, and hair accessories. These heads were meant to be replacement heads. They all had blue eyes, real rooted eyelashes with side glance eyes, until set #4043 was re-released with center glance eyes. They were available in blonde and brunette. Set 4044 also had red hair. When you find this head on the secondary market, it is usually found on a twist 'n turn Barbie body.
