The hairstyles are great, don't get me wrong. There's a good mix of "trendy" and "wear-to-work." But I feel the need to warn buyers that a) this is NOT a book for beginners; and b) this ONLY has hairstyles for very long hair. If you're like me and can't french braid your own hair or have longish medium-length hair, don't waste the money. Maybe I'm just uniquely useless at hairstyling, but that's why I bought a book! The photos are close-ups so it's hard to figure out where the model is positioning her hands, and because most of them are in black and white it can be difficult to figure out the precise instructions (the photo quality could be better). I have tried several of the "easier" styles on myself (bohemian, braid-bun) with absolutely no success.

If you have long hair and already have moderate hairstyling skill, you won't go wrong. But if your hair isn't six inches past your shoulders or you're just starting to experiment with your hair and struggling, this is only going to confound you.

I had been looking for a good hairstyle book for a long time and this was EXACTLY what I was looking for! All I wanted was some kind of step-by-step guide that could show me how to dress up my hair a bit so it wasn't so "blah" and boring all the time, yet still casual enough for everyday life...and maybe one or two ideas for fancier occasions too.

Every other hairstyle book out there I could find was either geared toward girls/teens, or had only very outdated styles, or was more about different hair cuts, or fancy, prom/wedding type updos. I have long, straight hair and just wanted to find everyday styles other than just wearing it down or putting it in a ponytail.

This book has so many great ideas AND step-by-step instructions for me to do the hairstyles on myself; no other person's help is needed. I also liked how there were some general tips on keeping your hair healthy and recommendations for styling products at the beginning.

AND, as a plus, I was introduced to the author's blog, which I have now been following. :)

I decided to purchase this book because it looked like it has hairstyles for everyday --and it does. However, I wish the author would have made the steps for each hairstyle a little more detailed, so someone who normally doesn't work with their hair on a daily basis (like myself lol) wouldn't have too much trouble achieving the look. I did, however, like how the author gave tips for brushes, frizzy hair, shampooing, etc.
I will definitely be looking for her new book!

VERY THIN BOOK. I bought this book to learn new styles and braiding techniques. I am a hairdresser and found this book easy to read and understand. I rate this poor because I felt it was over priced, you can find it brand new for $10 by going to twistmepretty.com which is the actual website for this book.

My 11 year old daughter received this a Christmas gift. I wasn't sure she would be able to produce great styles but I was wrong. She spent sometime practicing on her doll and was able to do her sister's hair beautifully! We are now all having a great time creating cute hair styles before we leave the house! As the mom, I tend to pull my hair up and call it a style. This book as great ideas even to update my sad mom style! Modern styles, easy to follow instructions with great photos to follow. Recommend for any woman from the very stylish to the style challenged!

This book has an excellent selection of hair styles from which to choose. The step-by-step pictures are very clear to follow. There is a nice range of "casual" and "formal" styles. The author's commentary is very warm and upbeat. None of the styles require expensive products or "gadgets". Bobby pins and hairspray are all you need to get started. I keep this book in my bedroom for easy reference while styling my hair. I was looking for a book on braiding hair, which this is; but, it also has nice "combo" styles with both braiding and letting the hair fall loose of twisting it up. This is well worth the price and a nice addition to your beauty book collection. The author also offers advice on caring for your hair and high end products you can purchase. Although they are not inexpensive, they last a long, long, time. A great book!

I don't think I have ever given a bad review here before, or at the very least I haven't done many, but I was disappointed when I got this book. It contains a few pages telling you to use conditioner and not to wash your hair with hot water. Next, there are 40 or 50 pages of pictures where she just folds her hair into different styles. I apologize; I don't usually do this, but I was just disappointed.

I recommend that you view the sample pages on Amazon first to see what you are getting. The hairstyles are all for people with long hair, the directions are simple and hard to follow especially if you've never done this before, and the pictures are also very simple and sometimes hard to decipher. Also, the pictures with the directions are in black and white. This is from a perspective of a guy, but all you really need are the names of the hairstyles and then you can just google for better pictures (or videos) and directions.

I should have noticed that the book was from an independent publisher and that it was only 56 pages, but I honestly expected a book with more substance and information. I mean, her other book cost less than this and still has more pages!

I"m just in shock right now so this book might be much more helpful to others so I apologize for such a low rating. To top things off, the corner of my book is bent from delivery. I'm just filled with so much regret now after multiple purchases from Amazon that have gone right so maybe I'll refrain from shopping on the Internet more now.
