I was recently given a free copy of Stunning Braids
in exchange for writing a review. Although this post is sponsored I promise you all views and opinions are soley my own.
Monaé Everett is an amazingly talented celebrity hairstylist, makeup artist and YouTube Rockstar. She is the truth, she has done hair and makeup for anyone you can think of-from Taraji P. Henson to Mariah Carey and Serena Williams to Chris Rock……Like I said everybody.
Anyone who knows me also knows I can’t do a lick of hair so I was skeptical that I’d be able to recreate the looks pictured in the book. I was ready to embrace the familiar feeling of disappointment that I so often feel when trying to attempt some new project that I’ve seen on Pinterest. But surprisingly I was not moping around like Eeyore after my first few attempts.
Stunning Braids is a step-by-step guide to 25 creative and stylish braiding styles that you can’t help but fall in love with. What I love most about this guide is that Monaé thoroughly explains the tools she uses for each hairstyle, which is perfect for people like myself who don’t have a clue about hair tools especially when it comes to picking the right hairpin. I also appreciated that the guide is for every single hair type. No hair type is left out, and the styles range from everyday cute styles to formal wedding styles or gala updos. My favorite simple style is the Simple Braided Pony because it’s easy to do but looks so intricate but subtle. The twisted updo is perfect for a military ball and it looks amazing on natural hair.
This book is the perfect guide for women who love switching up their hairstyles or women who just want to try something new but have no idea where to start. Regardless of whichever one you are I’m sure you’ll find something you love.
