Fashion Flash Book Review: Hairstyling from YouTube Tutorials
There seem to be an infinite umber of tutorials on YouTube on just about any topic. Some are wonderful, some not very helpful and then there are those that are hilarious– without trying to be funny. I can spend way too much time watching these tutorials, searching for the ones that give me the right answers. I especially wanted to find genuinely helpful ones to help me style hair. It was slow going until I find an incredibly helpful little book–. Youtube Guide to Hairstyling Not only does it provide a review of more than 125 different tutorials, it also provides the links to make findng them so much easier.
My college roommate ( and lifelong bestie) is always complaining about styling her long curly hair. Since I write a beauty blog and host fashion Flash I could count on at least one email a month asking for advice on tools and products. But until I got my hands on this little book I was not much help. Now I have been able to direct her to to new ways to wash her hair from Naptural85 that start with a cidar vinegar rinse and how to use coconut milk to beat the frizzies from AndreasChoice.
The tutorials cover ways to make your own deep conditioner, how to buy shampoos ( avoid those with sulfates) and even how to trim your own bangs. I have been addicted to bangs for decades and a tutorial from Carlibel55 has been a lifesaver for me. In just 125 pages this little book includes hair coloring, stimulating hair growth and at least eight different updoes. It combines printed book with online information Its just the best of both worlds.
