Author: Morgan Gantt
Author Website: How to Wear Your Hair
Genre: Non-fiction, Hair Styles
Publisher: Tate Publishing & Enterprises
Publication Date: June 22, 2010
My Rating: 5/5

This book is unique in the fact that it explores different hair styles for different face shapes. Each person's face is unique and while one hair style looks good on someone else, it might not necessarily be the style for you.
There is a chart at the beginning of the book that will help you determine easily, which shape your face takes. This book is visually impacting as you get to see the pictures that show you which styles best highlight your features, and those that don't. You also get to see what style of bangs works best with your face shape, to help make your hair style work for you. With every chapter there is a wrap up summary stating what to look for in a hair style, pertaining to your face shape. There is also a list of celebrities with each chapter, so you will know who also shares your face shape.
Overall, I found the book visually appealing, and very informative. It is laid out easily and gives clear instructions or tips on what to look for in a hair style to accentuate your face. Now I know why certain cuts I have had in the past did not work for me. This book is definitely a gem!

I love the sound of this book! Great review. Hairstyles are always interesting and it would be great to see which one would be best on me.

I also got an advance copy and LOVE it! Clears up alot of mystery that we women have about our face shapes and hairstyles...not every style will look good on every woman and this helps us (and our stylist) determine which is right. I won't enter cause I already have a copy and I am NOT putting a pic of my ugly hair out there for everyone to laugh at! LOL But seriously, buy the book, enter the contest, talk to your stylist...have fun!
