Brilliant Braids, Beads & Bows 25 Fantastic Hairstyles That You Can Create Yourself by Jacki Wadeson

This title features 25 fantastic hairstyles that you can create yourself. You can learn to tackle a topknot, have a riot with ribbons and create completely cool corncrows. It is ideal for 7- to 11-year-olds, with easy projects to start off with and more sophisticated styles for older kids. It covers everything from a perfect ponytail to bouncy bunches. It shows you how to add wonderful waves and ripples to your hair without the need for hot crimping irons. It includes simple instructions and over 300 beautiful photographs that show you what to do every step of the way, whether your hair is straight, wavy or curly. Doing your hair is such fun, and you'll be surprised to see how easy it is to create different styles. No matter what your hair type, there are plenty of things that you can do with it. All you need is a brush and comb, and as many bright beads, clips, bows, ribbons, covered bands and flowers as you can lay your hands on. Ask a grown-up if you can raid their sewing box - you will find lots of interesting things in there that you can put to use. Learn how to do a simple ponytail and plait or braid first, as these form the basis of many hairstyles. It's great if you have a friend to help you, and then you can do each other's hair. You can mix and match your styles and accessories to go with whatever you are wearing. You can jazz up a plain T-shirt or give an outfit a whole new look just by changing your hair. Happy braiding!
