Book Review :: Best Hair Book Ever! by the editors of Faithgirlz! and Girls' Life magazine

Best Hair Book Ever! is a fun reference book for a tween/teen girl in your life. It is filled with lots of cute hairstyles (and a variety of hair tips and tricks) - and something in it is sure to work for everyone. 

Best Hair Book Ever! is styled like a magazine and has eight sections:
- Your Best Hair
- The Cutest Cut
- School Hair
- Summer Hair
- Sporty Hair
- Weekend Hair
- Party Hair
- Braids
Although the claim as the "best ever" hair book may be a little stretch, it really is a great resource! The photographs in this book are fantastic (more magazine style than a "how-to" book style). Each hairstyle does have written out instructions, but the majority do not have step-by-step photos. I would have loved to have seen some diagrams or step-by-step pictures. (There are only step-by-step pictures on the blowout page and in the "Braids" section.)

This is one of those books that disappeared into my daughter's room as soon as it came in the house. She has enjoyed looking at it and getting some tips and ideas, but she says that many of the styles are too difficult to get looking like the picture (especially without an additional pair of hands) and some styles need a specific hair type to be able to pull them off. She has found many of the hairstyles easier to do on other people than on herself. One thing we also found surprising was that of the four hairstyles shown on the front cover, only one seems to really be addressed inside the book. She really wanted to know how to reproduce the look on the upper right, but it is not in the book.

All that said, Best Hair Book Ever! has been fun to look at and has inspired some new hairstyles for my 12 year old. It is something I think most girls would enjoy looking through.
FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews.
