Reviews - What do customers think about Braids and Bows: A Book of Instruction?

This book is terrible  Jul 31, 2008
I'm sorry, but this book is terrible. I am not a hair whiz, but this book should be called "Ponytails." I am usually not this critical of things, but I am just so upset that I wasted my money on this. This book was just too basic. If you can already do your child's hair and are looking for new/neat ways to fix it, this is not the book you want. Get "Fabulous Hair" instead.
A Classic  Dec 1, 2007
My mom had this book when I was younger and we still purchase it for our friends with daughters (I'm now 23). The illustrations are very clear and I had the best braids in elementary school and can still french braid better than anyone I know!
Braids and Bows, an adventure in hair.  Nov 10, 2007
I love this book, it's wonderful for both little girls and teenagers. The directions are very easy to follow even for someone like me with four thumbs. After a couple of false starts I was able to send my daughter off to school with beautiful French Braids and she was the envy of the other girls in her class.
Helpful hints for a klutzy mom  Feb 14, 2007
I was quite pleased with this book as I have always had short hair and both my girls prefer their hair long. The photos are a bit dated, but the diagrams showing how to do the work are spot on.
A little outdated, but excellent instructions and a great value  May 9, 2006
As a mom, I found this book very useful. It is great for learning how to do just about any kind of braid. It starts with easier stuff, like the garden-variety braid and pony-tail flips, so it works for someone with zero hair experience. It finishes up with fishtail braids, French braids and French ropes. The instructions are very clear, and the best part is that they show you just how to hold your hands. I never got the hang of French braids, but now I've mastered them.

The only reason I give this book 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is slightly outdated in style. The publication date is 1992 and you will spot pictures of girls in floral dresses with white yokes and oversized button-down shirts with turtlenecks. But the hair techniques are still great and easily adaptable to other hairstyles. And most of the hairstyles are timeless, especially for young girls. (I don't know that I would wear a French braid myself.)

The bow instructions are also neat. The book shows how to gather ribbon and wire it to barrettes in different styles such as rosettes and the "worm." It also has ideas for more unusual barrettes. We are going to make the balloon barrette for a birthday party craft.

Overall, a great buy for girls ages 7-13 or for parents of younger girls.
