Review: Amazing Hairstyles by Becky Porter


Amazing Hairstyles: From Easy to Elegant 

Amazing Hairstyles from Easy to Elegant by Becky Porter
My Source: I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Description: Tired of bad hair days? Popular hairstyle blogger Rebecca Porter teaches you the basics of braids, buns, and twists, and helps you combine them to create amazing hairstyles for any occasion. Go from drab to fab at any age with the easy, step-by-step tutorials in this essential guide.

My Review: I have two daughters and neither one of them has that perfect hair. One of them is a teen now and does her own hair and it's always so cute, but the other's a battle. The biggest problem is that I have no clue what I'm doing!

I was excited to get this book and to look through it to see all the different styles. There are casual styles and fancy styles; easy styles and styles that are a little more work.The book starts out with a list of basic hair items. Hello? Where have I been? I never knew that a topsy tail took existed and think of how easy some of these styles will be with this tool--I need one! There are also some basic terms described, which was helpful to someone as clueless as I am.

Now for the fun stuff--each style had multiple pictures and step-by-step instructions, which made every style seem doable. I haven't tried all of them out yet, but the ones I have are fun. I honestly had no clue that do do a twist, you have to twist each piece of hair one way and then twist them together the opposite way. I think my twists will stay put now--what a relief!

This is a great book for beginners or really for anyway looking for fairly easy ways to jazz up their hair.
