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Every other hairstyle book out there I could find was either geared toward girls/teens, or had only very outdated styles, or was more about different hair cuts, or fancy, prom/wedding type updos.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!

This book is made very poorly, the photos are hard to see, instructions very vague. It appears as though a girl and her mother literally made this book, took the pictures and put it together, even the print & paper are poor quality for a book.

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!
