Here are 100 classic, salon-quality styles that any non-professional can handle, all shown with full-color photographs that detail every step, as well as information on essential supplies and basic techniques. There are “dos” for any length, mood, and occasion, from a night out at the hottest club to the fanciest wedding. Select from elegant chignons, waterfalls of curls that cascade down your back, or loose, playful tendrils that frame the face. Some have jewel or flower adornments, while others feature braids, twists, and hair weaves. Every look is beautiful and unique.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Readers looking for ideas to take to their hairstylists for special occasions will find this book useful; those looking to get the knack may find it disappointing unless they are working to become hairdressers. Biton is a successful hairstylist based in Tel Aviv, Israel, who has produced other publications to train stylists on a variety of techniques. The illustrations and instructions are thorough, but each style would benefit from a list of tools and products needed to achieve it, as well as tips on what hair lengths and types would be best suited for the look. There is a section on supplies and tips that indicates some hairstyles may require the assistance of a friend, but readers unfamiliar with more advanced techniques might still find some of the content daunting. Those needing well-illustrated, step-by-step instructions for fairly complex hairstyles will appreciate this book. For public libraries without current hairstyling books.
—Shelley Brown

    Great Hair

    This book is totally awesome. I am not good in the updo area, but this has simple instructions that show you how to complete each look and what you need to do it. I love it and can't wait to try a look out on someone.

    Beautiful Hairstyles

    Love the hairstyles and the steps are very easy to follow. I bought a second copy for my niece and she loved it too.

    A reviewer

    Quick quibble with book description: the book only has 62 styles, not 100 as advertised in the book review, and some styles are teenager-ish rather than elegant, but there are more than enough gorgeous styles for every length. Each and every style has clear step-by-step instuctions plus a colour photograph illustrating each step. A bit tricky if you're not used to styling your own hair, but the book makes it as easy as it will ever get. I am VERY happy with this product.
