I've been growing out a pixie cut for the last three years, and, now that my hair is mid-back, have been wanting to try out more styles on it. Since I've had short hair most of my adult life, I've never had the chance to play with various braiding techniques, so I ordered this book and also Braids, Buns, and Twists!: Step-by-Step Tutorials for 82 Fabulous Hairstyles, which both arrived this week. I really like them both!

There aren't as many styles in _DIY Braids_ as there are in Butcher's _Braids, Buns, and Twists_ book, which has 82 styles, so that other book has a bit more to choose from. There is also some overlap between the two books, but I'm glad I have them both since each has its own merits.

This book by Sasha Coefield excels in the lovely, large step-by-step photos that are included for every one of the 30 or so styles that are included. Each photo corresponds to a step in the instructions, so it's very easy to follow along with it.

Concerning the styles, I think that there is a lot to choose from in this book. The author starts off with the basic braids (French braid, Dutch braid, fishtail, and lace), and then she creates more complicated styles that build on those four basic types. Each style includes a large photo of the completed look, and then the above-mentioned photos of each step.

As a 42-year-old, I was worried that the styles might be too "young" for me, but I found myself wanting to try out each style in this book. (As dorky as it sounds, I've wanted to try out a Dutch braid since seeing the first _Hunger Games_ movie, and I accomplished it today, thanks to Coefield's fabulous instructions! Yay!

I bought this book as a gift for my 11 year old niece. Usually we go online to find YouTube videos about braiding but we don't need to anymore! The pictures and directions are simple and concise. It is written so that she can learn how to do the braids on her own hair step-by-step. There are a lot of options and unique styles that are labeled easy, intermediate or difficult and range from a basic rope braid to multiple intertwined fishtails. The day after Christmas we put sticky notes on the braids we wanted to try and almost the whole book was filled with sticky notes after we were done browsing. The models in the book have both straight hair and curly hair. I highly recommend this easy to follow braid book.

I was really excited to get this book so I can learn different braid styles. The illustrations are okay and somewhat easy to follow. I tried the fishtail braid,it turned out nice and my co-workers liked it too. I will try more styles from this book. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied.

I bought this because I wanted to do something with my hair since I finally grew it out. This book is great for beginners. I really like the pictures that show you step by step of how to do the specific style.

This book has many braiding styles. It is easy to follow, has good instructions. Like the other braiding book I bought, the hair styles are for every day or good evening dressed up. This is not full of far out runway model hair. It can prick your imagination so you will have many style to choose from. I already can braid and French braid, but this book has many other braiding styles, with good instructions. Remember, your first tries may not come out perfect.. Practice, or get a friend to help you get started. I do not use a mirror because it is backward an confuses me. Good book.
