Spruce up any outfit with your best accessory—your hair!

You don’t need to be a professional to get show-stopping hair. Hairstyled presents 75 deceptively simple techniques for creating your favorite high-fashion hairstyles. Dress up your everyday look with a ballerina bun or accessorize with a scarf bow. Turn heads at special occasions with the woven crown braid or a regal bouffant.

Each style has how-to photographs that are easy to follow, and chapters dedicated to a variety of hair lengths and textures help you update your look whether you have a pixie cut or long, curly tresses. With product tips and countless ideas for accessorizing your ’do and inventive variations on classic styles, Hairstyled is your guide to getting gorgeous hair every day.

Hairstyled was a fun book to go through, and had a lot of good ideas for dressing up your hair….which any girl could use, I am sure :-) Some of the styles were plain, and some of them I personally just didn’t care for at ALL, but there were some really pretty, fast, simple, ideas.

I really appreciated the way the ladies modeling the hairstyles were dressed — in a modest, subtle way. There were a few pictures of the girls in tank tops, but the majority of the girls were dressed in plain, light colored t-shirts, with the focus of each picture being on the persons hair….NOT her body, or her face. The poses used were not provocative either. And having brothers and a father, that was a concern to me.

I have enjoyed (and am still enjoying) several of the hairstyles. I like the ideas to fix your hair so you can wear it to church, and around the house, and not look like you were trying to impress people with your hair — meaning that it looks nice, but not overly done.

I found something to do in everyone’s hair — and in our family that can be quite a chore! We have some baby fine hair that is slippery, some hair that is a *normal* thickness but is straight and slippery, some hair that is super thick and wavy, some hair that is extremely curly, and some hair that is normal thickness with a TON of body — too wavy to be straight, but not curly either. We have people in various stages of growing out bangs, and various lengths of hair. Yet I found something that worked for everyone!

This sister has extremely long hair, that is a pretty normal thickness.

    Sounds like a great book! I will have to look into it because I’m trying to find more hairstyles that I can do with my Lilla Rose Flexi’s.:)
