Cozy Cuts for Kids is a New York City institution. Little customers sit in a chair shaped like a car, boat or pony, watch cartoons and enjoy what is usually a stressful time for mother and child. Now Cozy has written a great book on hair care for children and I am so glad that I have granddaughters to play with. This ilustration packed book explains basics of a child’s hair growth and explores the best tools and techniques. I love the way the book drlls down into the different hair types including fine, curly, Asian, and African American hair.
For example, Cozy advises to avoid using any hair brush on curly hair to avoid the frizzies. For fine hair, Cozy recommends a gentle shampoo and applying conditioner only on the ends. I especially loved the the explanation of different types of brushes, curling irons and hair dryers. Shamppos and products for children were a blur to me until I got my hands on this book. She recommends young children should only use tear-free products.
But I have to confess that my favorite parts of the book were the step by step directions for different hair styles. I have two granddaughters-one curly haired cherub ( think Shirley Temple) and the other with a yard of Elsa blonde hair. I can’t wait to try out the ” quarter-top” for my curly top and a fish tail braid for my goldilocks.
Each style describes needed tools and equipment, and provides both illustrations and photographs. It’s this type of detail throughout the entire book that has earned Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls Hair a permanent place in my over-crowded beauty bookcase.
