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.
For most of the styles, you will also probably want to have medium to long hair; none of the styles are really for short hair, which makes sense given the types of styles that are in here.
The only negative I was hoping that this book would be designed to do the styles on yourself, but several of them recommend having someone help you until you practice enough to learn how to do the styling yourself.
I had also been worried that this book would be geared more towards younger women, but there are a lot of styles in here that I will feel comfortable, as a forty-two-year-old, wearing to work or out on a date night with the hubby. A few (like putting your hair in bows) are definitely geared towards a younger audience, but most are on-trend and fun.
This is a fun way to try out some new styles and looks! While each style in here might not be to your liking, there's enough variety in here that you will most likely find quite a few styles to try out.
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.
