Stunning Braids by Monae Everett
The beginning of the book features different tools to be used throughout the how-to's. Numerous types of hair pins, brushes, combs, & hair sprays and gels are all featured. The very first how-to is a tutorial on how to do a simple braid. Each tutorial grows in difficulty until readers learn how to make a Knotted Updo, or my personal favorite: The Triple Mermaid Updo! I loved that the author took time to explain how to do certain methods such as backcombing or making flatiron curls.
The hairstyles are both graceful and functional. I could see myself using these for a day at the beach or an evening wedding! I plan to go through this book with my 9 year old daughter who LOVES styling hair. She has already mastered the basic braid and a few of the others,
but I think this is a book she would definitely benefit from. The instructions are easy to follow, and the illustrations are clear and concise and show what needs to be done. Some of the tutorials have as many as 26 steps, but I think that is a good thing because it shows exactly each step in detail.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys styling hair, or for someone who is just looking for a new hairstyle! I rate this book as 5 stars!
I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
