I'ts a really good book

May 24, 2016

SUMMARY: This book is for girls of all hair types with medium to long hair. There are no short hair styles in this book. There are 50 hair styles broken down into four categories: Ponytails, Braids, Pigtails, and Buns and Twists. Each hairstyle comes with a picture of a model with the completed hairstyle and a step by step visual of how to complete the hairstyle. Each hairstyle has three pictures and shows what that style would like with different types of hair or from different angles.

REVIEW: I first read Strebe's 100 Perfect Hair Days and wanted to see what she had available for the younger crowd. I enjoyed every page of this book. The layout is excellent. Each hairstyle has a two page spread with the model wearing the hairstyle, the step by step step instructions and the variation (if there is one). The book is extremely user friendly with easy to understand instructions. I especially loved the fact that the children used in the photos look naturally adorable instead of like pageant misses. What you see on the cover is a sample of what you will see in the book. I also loved that the author shows the hairstyles as they would look with different hair types. However, Strebe gives tips whenever possible of how to make the hairstyles work with all hair types.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: The hairstyles are appropriate for all ages once your child's hair reaches the appropriate length, but this book would be a wonderful gift for a child ages 7-8 to preteen or whenever your child is first able to complete hairstyles independently (such as braiding hair). With all that said, even though the book is targeted for this age group, as an adult, there are many adorable hairstyles throughout the book I would definitely wear!
