Vintage Swirl Ponytail Barbie
In 1964 Barbie hit a new phase of glamor, and it all began with the release of the Swirl Ponytail Barbie doll.
Unlike the first six Ponytail Barbies that had their hair pulled straight back with bangs in the front, this new doll had her bangs combed to the left, resembling a swirl.
Her hair was available in four different colors; Blonde, Brunette, Redhead and Platinum. (The Redhead boxes originally had Titian for the hair color, but was later changed to Redhead.) The dolls all had blue eyes and their eyebrows matched their hair color, but they did come in a variety of different lip shades.
The outfit that she was released in was a red Jersey swimsuit, with pearl stud earrings, red open toe shoes and a yellow ribbon that held her ponytail together.
