The book is laid out in the order you'd expect to teach a newbie to blowdry- a short story about Webb and her Drybar empire, followed by information about products and hair types. There's a handy glossary in the front of the book. Then you get into the meat- step-by-step instructions with photos on how to achieve the Drybar's signature blowouts. The book has very clear instructions for multiple kinds of hair types and what products to use for specific styles. Webb even suggests that certain hairstyles will not work well on specific hair types - for instance, she cautions fine haired women to not try the Southern Comfort. I appreciate this honesty when thumbing through the book so I won't waste my time on it. The book concludes with some advice about maintaining your blowout for a few days as well as some hairstyles you can use on second-day old hair. Webb (of course) pushes Drybar products and styling tools, but it's easy to find comparable products from your own stash. Webb's writing style is easy to understand, though the photos can be hard to decipher when trying to understand some curling instructions!
One thing that's really frustrating about the book - it doesn't lay flat! Since it's sort of a "cookbook" for how to do your hair, I would love for the book to lay flat on my vanity or counter while doing my hair. When I try and use the book while blowing drying, I have to constantly pause and open the book back up because it closes, which slows things down. The photos sometimes are confusing and it can look like the model is doing the same thing for three steps.
Overall, I think this is a great book for beginners to blowouts (myself) and Drybar enthusiasts who want to reproduce the company's signature styles at home.
