Hair books? Why would I need a book when I can find endless blog posts and video tutorials online you may ask? Well I am here to share with you a couple of new how to hair books and why they are of value.
Two very internet savvy woman have released some hair styling books expanding their online knowledge to print. While it is wonderful we have access to this knowledge via their blogs and YouTube channels there is something to be said for being able to pick up a book and flip through a variety of styles before settling on one to recreate. Not to mention how convenient it is to be able to have my daughter browse the books to find what she wants us to attempt that day. Something not as easily done online with the vast amount of information you are flooded with. A good book will never go out of style!
The first book I have to share with you is by the talented Christina Butcher of the blog Hair Romance. If you haven’t visited her blog it’s a must! Christina has released ebooks in the past but this is her first print book and it is such a pleasure to browse through. The book contains 82 step by step tutorials for various braids, buns, and updos. Hence the name Braids, Buns, and Twists.
There is a photograph of the completed style for each tutorial on a variety of people/hair types. The tutorial itself is done via illustration and written description.
The difficulty of the style is noted as well as if you will need any assistance or accessories.
A book that focuses solely on braids is DIY Braids by the Sasha Coefield, the creator of the YouTube channel asksash88. I was unfamiliar with this channel but it has ton of great video hair tutorials.
This book features exclusively braids with 30 step by step tutorials. With DIY Braids all of the steps are portrayed with real life images of Sasha herself proving you really can do these yourself.
