After reading the great reviews on Amazon for Vintage Hairstyling, I couldn't resist trying it out. This book easily earns it's five-star rating. I'm pretty much a hairstyling novice, but the author made all the styles very approachable-- and they're all very lovely.
I've been at it for a couple of weeks now and I think I'm getting the hang of it. A lot of what I've tried so far comes out looking somewhat "costumey", so I'm thinking the next step is to figure out how to tone it down a little, for everyday hair with a vintage feel.
