I have spent the past couple of years looking at YouTube videos about how to create vintage hairstyles, and even splashed out on a one to one lesson with a vintage hairdresser. I found this book to be a good companion, consolidating some of the knowledge I have learned. So here are some pros and cons:

PROS

1. An ideal gift - the book is beautifully laid out with clear photos, and has a nice textured hardcover. Very pretty.
2. Clear and easy to follow instructions - I have successfully created some of the styles from the book (a beehive style, no less!)
3. It also shows photographs of current celebrities sporting vintage styles "Then and Now" - I feel this is very useful and encourages people to experiment bringing vintage styles into modern life.
4. Good basic information about the type of haircut to sport to make each style work and a bit about tools.

CONS

1. I'd like more technical information about how to handle hair, and potential problems you could encounter creating these styles. There is some, but it's fairly basic.
2. Some of the styles are very tricky and do require practice - this isn't really a con of the book, but it does suggest all hairstyles can be created yourself. Whilst I don't doubt this is true, it isn't always going to be an easy ride until you've had some practice so do bear that in mind!

So the cons aren't really big problems. I say, if you're interested in having a hands on reference to styling hair in this manner, here is an excellent introduction and I'm sure you'll have loads of fun with it.

This book is really nicely presented even if some of the models are abit scary.
I did feel though that it was more like an introduction and was missing the rest of the book.
There is NOT a lot of styles.
I recommend this book if you have short hair because most of the styles are for you.
I also recommend it for those who want just a couple of hair styles to try.

Like another reviewer said, style over substance (and not even great style at that). I was looking forward to this book, and when the price dropped thought I'd give it a try. However, it contains some mediocre photos and hardly any text. The hairstyles for the different periods are not particularly well chosen in some cases, and there aren't many styles either. Considering the author is an actual hairstylist I find this book very disappointing.
It contains absolutely nothing that can't be found on the internet for free and in an improved version (blogs, youtube, etc.). I can't recommend it at all, despite the low price.

This book is really well laid out, with plenty of step by step photos for every look.
I struggle sometimes with complicated styles and great vintage looks can be hard to achieve, but this books is perfect for me!

I was looking for a book with lots of vintagey styles which are easily created with heated rollers.
I find that although the book is well laid out and well designed, there isn't enough text on how to do each step and some of the styles simply can't be achieved single handedly.
I also would have liked it to contain variations of how styles can be worn in different hair lengths, and some of the styles couldn't be achieved without specialist stuff like pin curl clips which I couldn't find where to get.
There weren't really enough styles in it.
It has been slightly useful though.

I am a 1940s recreator (in that I dress in the period everyday) and am therefore a bit of a collector of books about vintage styling, and I would not recommend purchasing this book to anybody. The styles are extremely messy - not a good demonstration of how to achieve vintage styles at all. Very disappointing.

I was really looking forward to this book arriving, especially after the release date being put back, but it was very disappointing. Complete style over substance.

Each finished style looks messy, and the steps are hard to follow and not very well explained. The layout is also annoying, as the huge pictures take up space that could be used to better explain the techniques. The vintage fabrics used throughout are lovely - what a shame the book isn't as nice

However, for the price of £7.49, this might be a good starting point to getting into vintage style. However, for someone with a deeper interest, this book Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Step-by-Step Techniques is in my opinion far superior.
