I'm a makeup artist who is looking to learn to do bridal hair. This book has nice step by step pictures of how to create many elegant hairstyles for weddings. The only thing I found that I didn't particularly like is that many of the hairstyles are very "model" like - meaning, good for photo shoots but not something that MOST regular bride would want... meaning, popular bridal updos. However, it does give you some nice tips. This would be a good book if you know the basic techniques of bridal updos and want to learn some more "artistic" hairstyles for professional photo shoots. Some of the hairstyles are too "high fashion" or "avant gard" for your regular brides.
I read some of the reviews before purchasing this book as well as "LOOK INSIDE" option. I'm glad I did purchase it. Their are several elegant styles that you couldn't wear other than your OWN wedding but what I take from it is there is ROOM TO ALTER and MANIPULATE to a more tone-down style that's not overboard for the occasion. I appreciate this book greatly and WILL TAKE THE TIME TO MANIPULATE MANIPULATE MANIPULATE the styles for the occasion.
As stated in the above review, the syles are great and the pictures helpful, but there are no styles for short or even medium-length hair.
It is simple enough to follow, and more important, it is easily adaptable to the individual. Some of the looks are not as modern or as on trend as I would have hoped, but anyone with even a little bit of skill can make them salon ready, trendy, and fun. It's a good book with sound fundamentals. I would tell my students that while not an imperative purchase, it is a helpful one, especially if they are insecure about their up-do skills.
This book is especially good for newer hairstylist who wants to know how to do basic updos. has absolutely no layered hair models and only illustrates on very long one length hair. Has a few good tips to update styles.
Completely worth it, as a bride who has no clue to what she's looking for in a hair style this is perfect. It has step by step instructions and I thought hey I can try them all :)) there are only like 3 African America hair styles BTW so If I was African American I prob wouldn't buy this product because they weren't that awesome soo I mean there was like one good one.But anyways I love this book for me .. it has all long hair styles in it .. and a few medium. But there all so beautiful and some a whimsical some are modern and some are vintage .. worth the buy ..
This is a good book to learn updo's, however the illustrations that show you how to do the updo is in black and white and not colored so same illustrations are hard to see. Other than that the book is great
my wife use this book as a guide for her bridesmaid hairstyle. she said the instructions are easy to follow, she was happy with the professional quality look of the hairstyle. I would recommend this to any bride who has to plan a wedding on a limited budget.
