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.

     I feel like this is a book that I would be much more impressed with if I wasn't such a Pinterest user. While there were one or two hairstyles in this book that I hadn't seen before, most of them I was already familiar with. The directions themselves were so-so (again, on the level of a Pinterest how-to). This isn't really an issue for some of the easier hairstyles, but might cause a few moments of confusion for the more difficult ones. There are some lovely hairstyles in here, but there are also some that look like they were just thrown together at the last minute with no thought of whether or not they actually looked good. (For instance, I have no idea what was going on with the "Straight With a Twist" style. Also, some of the hairstyles that used gel looked weirdly greasy and unattractive.)

     There are some pretty braids and buns, but most of these styles are probably geared for someone who is a bit more of a beginner in the hairstyling department. There are still some instructions I'll definitely use, though, and it's nice to have a book full of inspirations on days when I'm out of ideas.
