Braids, Buns & Twists: The Perfect How-To Book for Hair

Sent For Review Affiliate links

I'm so excited for do-it-yourself hair guru Christina Butcher and her new book, Braids, Buns, and Twists!: Step-by-Step Tutorials for 82 Fabulous Hairstyles. Christina's blog, Hair Romance, has been my favorite hair blog forever. Whenever I need an idea, clicking through a few pages of her blog are so much more inspiring than looking at a million Pinterest photos.  She just speaks my language. Her tutorials are easy to follow and always look stunning - even if you can't master the style perfectly.


Now her most popular tutorials are available in one easy-to-prop-up-in-front-of-the-mirror, without-worrying-about-your-screen-timing-out book.

Braids, Buns and Twists is broken down into Buns, Knots & Twists, Braids and Ponytails, so new ideas are easy to find before you've even had your morning coffee. Each style tells you how difficult it is, if you'll need extensions, an assistant, how long your hair should be and easy ways to modify the style. There are photos of the finished style and drawings that show how to achieve it. All it takes is a little practice! In case you're new to Gouldylox, I've had short hair for most of my life and Christina's tutorials are the reason I can style my hair at all. I'm a total newbie to longer hair and if I can do it, so can you!


While I haven't been able to quite master the Figure 8 Braid just yet (I'm sure I'll get it eventually!), this book is a must have for anyone who is stuck in a hair rut or who loves to experiment with their hair.


Pick it up for $19.99 anywhere books are sold (even less on Amazon!). It's also available on the Kindle for $9.99. Grab yours today--you're going to love it!

  1. Thanks so much Kelly! You're making me blush with such a lovely review! The figure-8 one took a bit of practice for me in the beginning. It's easier on someone else's hair, and works best in long hair without layers. I know you'll master it for sure xx

    1. Maybe it's the layers that are making it hard. Good to know I'm not the only one who thinks it's really tricky!

  2. This is the perfect Xmas gift for my daughter. I might have to finally try to do something other a ponytail too!
