Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair by Cozy Friedman

Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair by Cozy Friedman is all about hair. If you need some guidance on cutting hair or styling girls’ hair, this is one to definitely check out. It is beautifully illustrated, and fully explains the different techniques so just about everyone can do it.

Book Description
Styling girls’ hair is easy with advice from the owner of Cozy’s Cuts for Kids.

Little girls love to have pretty hair, and parents and grandparents can spend hours trying to achieve the best styles for their daughters. This book gives an insider’s look at how to make the task trouble-free and fun for both girls and their caretakers.

An expert on hair care—with a chain of children’s hair salons and a nationwide line of hair products for kids—Cozy Friedman shares her years of training to give each girl the best look to fit her style and personality. Starting with a hair identification guide, the book recommends the products, methods, and tools for each hair type from curly to straight. Expert advice includes step-by-step instructions for how to cut hair at home and how to fix bad-hair days. Best of all, there are wonderful styles (with clear directions on how to achieve them) for girls’ everyday hair, dress-up dos, and fantasy looks, and even suggested styles for babies, too.

Chock-full of color photographs, the look-book aspect of Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair will appeal to both girls and their parents. Grown-ups can browse through photographs of more than thirty different hairstyles and choose one that works best for their little girl!” – Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair

My Thoughts
Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair is the perfect book for everyone who needs help with their girls’ hair. Going to the beauty salon for young girls isn’t a fun place to go and can be pricey. Sometimes you don’t really need to go for that expensive haircut or quick fix (for instance if gum is caught in the hair). Not everyone knows how to trim bangs, get that gum out, or any of the other variety of things that can happen to hair. This book gives the answers needed and also helps to explain and show how to do many different hairstyles that girls will love to show off to their friends.

This guide is in full color and is beautifully illustrated to show the different types of hair, hairstyles, and all of the other tips about hair. It is written in an easy to read and understand manner, which makes it very nice to actually try the styles shown in the book. Some are really easy and don’t require more than five minutes. There are also some that will take quite a bit of skill (especially the special braiding techniques), but they can be mastered if you (and the person whose hair you’re working on) has the patience to sit still long enough.

Overall, I found the book to be helpful for those that have children and also for those that don’t. The tips and even some of the hairstyles can be used for all many ages on girls of all ages. I highly recommend it.
