Fashion Flash Book ReviewFashion Flash Book Review: Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair by Cozy Friedman

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.
