Stunning Braids By Monaè Everett

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes

I'm totally into twists and braids and I learned how to do the basic braid at age 30 on a Barbie doll and guess who taught me? 
My husband yep he showed me how to do the regular 3 strand braid.

Now I can do the fishtail and a messy French braid on a Barbie doll head I own, so I'm still practicing lol.
Today's post is about a book that I will definitely be learning from.
It's called stunning braids by Monaé Everett.

This beautiful paperback book is carefully sectioned starting from your hair type to the tools you will need like brushes, combs, bobby pins and so on, to the many different types of braids that can be worn loose or in an up do.
Here's an idea of the chapters included:

Monaé Everett is a professional celebrity hairstylist who has worked on Mariah Carey, Taraji P. Henson, the A-listers go on and she's a braiding teacher. She's also a makeup artist and has braiding tutorials on YouTube.

What I like about this 144 page glossy book is that the pictorials are easy to understand and follow, now accomplishing the braids and styles are another story but with practice I'm sure they can turnout good.

Some styles I feel are not easy to do on oneself and you would need a helper but overall, the book has styles that are simple and elegant.

I can't wait for my hair to grow longer to try the other styles shown in this book like the half crown braid where it's braided beautifully on the crown then the hair flows down like a fairytale princess.
That one I would have to practice like crazy to achieve the look.

If you like braids or would like to learn how to do them then I recommend this book.

Stunning Braids is from Ulysses Press and is available at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon.
