If you don't already own a copy, there is no more helpful or beautifully illustrated book for updos and braids than "Hair: A Book of Braiding and Styles"" by Anne Akers Johnson. There are far more styles represented than in the Salon Ovations book, and they are better illustrated...for half the price. If you are looking for some good styles in addition to those in "Hair", you won't find them in this book.
Though geared toward those in the hairstyling industry, it is simple enough for anyone to use. My husband who has never done any hairstyling was even able to do the simpler ones in just a few trys.
The braids are arranged in order from easier to hardest. Written directions along with step-by-step illustrations showing hand positions are included. Each braid section is also shown in different shaded patterns.
Some braid & ponytail styles include fishtail, rope, Dutch, knotting, twisting, bowtie, overlap updo and many French styles.
