"Must-read hair bible."

-BUST Magazine

"This book of braids is everything we've ever wanted."
-Refinery29

"Not only does Butcher's tome provide dozens of covetable styles ready for rocking day to day or at a special event, but the way she breaks the steps down make the looks actually seem possible."

The author of this book, Christina Butcher, has a wonderful website called Hair Romance that I've been following for a couple of years, and so I was really excited to see that she was coming out with a hard copy book. I really like this new book, and know that I will have fun playing with the styles in it!

For most of my adult life, I've had a short pixie cut, but I've spent the last three years growing it out, and it now reaches to my mid-back. I tend to wear it in the same few styles, so I bought this hoping that it would inspire me to get out of my rut. It definitely will!

The book is divided into four main chapters: ponytails; braids; buns, knots, and twists; and chignons. Each section is also color-coded along the edges of the pages, so it's easy to locate the section you're looking for.

On the left-hand side of each page is the name of the style, some colors photos of what the style looks like, the difficulty level, the ideal hair length for achieving the style, the accessories needed, and a few other items. On the right-hand/facing page are step-by-step drawn instructions for doing each style. This layout is really nice, for it makes it very easy to follow along while looking at the photos of the finished style.

One of the other strengths of this book is that it features styles that are very trendy right now, such as topknots, waterfall braids, and fishtail braids. The instructions are also really easy to follow, and most require only a few accessories, like bobby pins or, for some of the buns, a hair donut. I love to watch hair tutorials on You Tube and was worried that it would be hard to follow written instructions (as opposed to following along with videos), but the instructions are really nicely done.

I am a follower of the Hair Romance blog so I was super excited there was a hard copy book to purchase with her styles in it. She has multiple ebooks (30 Twist & Pin Hairstyles in 30 Days or Braids or Buns and more she plans to release) she sells on her website, I'm tempted to buy them but at $15 each, I'd still need to print up in color the 75+ pages as I like to have a hardcopy in front of me so I don't have to go back and forth to the computer to try to do a style. From her website she states that this book is NOT a copy of those eBooks but new styles so it was a steal at the $15 book price already printed. However, the format of the book definitely doesn't WOW like her blog does. Don't get me wrong, there are some amazing and beautiful hairstyles in here, actually a LOT of styles. The photos on the left show some variations of the same style and a write up on the difficulty level, ideal hair length, whether hair extensions are needed, whether assistance is needed, a blurb on accessories and a "Try This" write up on variations referring you to other pages and ideas. Take note though, the font is SMALL, like if you were farsided, you would definitely need your reading glasses. For that side, of the book and how many styles there are, this is a really good book, BUT the right page is a different story. The right page is the "How To Get It" page, obviously the important page. It tells you what you need (brush, hair elastic, bobby pins etc.), the bottom tells you a write up on how to get the style which in some cases isn't 100% clear but the disappointment comes in the step by step pictures. They aren't pictures at all but drawings. Why oh why would she not use the same format as her blog and use the beautiful photos like her tutorials there??Read more ›

I originally saw this book in December at a high-end stationer and thought it would make a cute stocking-stuffer for the ladies in my family. The book is divided into chapters: buns, ponytails, braids and up-dos. Each page offers a different style of braid, ponytail, bun, etc. complete with pictures, illustrations and text. Some of the styles are elaborate but due to space on the page, the styles suffer from an accurate amount of directions to complete the style quickly. The tutorials are great at mentioning what styling product works best with each type of hair and the buyer should note that specific tools are used to make certain hair styles: a topsytail tool, bun or "donut", specific bobby pins, hair ties, etc. so the buyer may want to consider grabbing a few of these items at a beauty supply store to make this gift the complete package. The book is a paperback book with a durable, hardcover and measures approximately 9" x 7" with close to 200 pages. Please note: I saw this book for $19.95 at a stationary shop and was able to purchase it on Amazon.com for about $12.00 the week before Christmas (with free, Prime shipping). It certainly pays to do your comparison research!

On some of the more difficult hairstyles it's sometimes hard to understand from the description and I wish there were more pictures. Otherwise it's an awesome book and very inspiring.

This has some very cute and different hair styles featured. The only problem is that you really do need someone to help you
complete the different styles. Only three or four of the Braids, Buns, and Twists are possible to complete by yourself. This is
a good book if you have several friends over and can help each other.
