My daughter is 7-years-old, and like most 3-9 year old girls, is very in to being a princess—whether it be dressing up, doing fancy hairstyles or all of the above. Recently, two books came out, which total 68 different hairstyles that you can recreate with your little princess!
I recently had the chance to review two books that focus on recreating beautiful hairstyles for little princesses: Disney Princess Hairstyles: 40 Amazing Princess Hairstyles With Step by Step Images and Disney Frozen Hairstyles: Inspired by Anna and Elsa (Edda USA).
I have had a blast recreating some of the styles in the book, although many will have to wait until my daughter’s hair gets thicker and/or longer. She has really long, but fine hair, and some of the styles won’t work for her.
My daughter LOVES Ariel, and wanted to try out “Riding the Waves” first. Here is the completed ‘do:
Comparing to the original (pictured left, below), I’d say the step by step guide was clear enough for us to replicate this to a “T”.
And what little girl doesn’t love Frozen? There are 28 styles to choose from, but Kieran opted for the simple, “Ponytail with a Twist” (original pictured right, above):
The original photo is posted two images above. I would say my daughter’s hair was too fine and too short to be able to replicate this one as well.
And, for Halloween, we went all-out—Anna costume complete with “Anna’s Braids” (including the white stripe). We even added a little Olaf for the full effect!
Disney Princess Hairstyles: 40 Amazing Princess Hairstyles With Step by Step Images features Ariel, Mulan, Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Belle, Jasmine, Merida, Rapunzel, Tiana and Pocahontas inspired hairstyles.
Disney Frozen Hairstyles: Inspired by Anna and Elsa features many braid styles and updo’s. The Frozen book features many styles for active girls as well as for more special occasions. It also features “Braidschool”, an invaluable section that shows how to construct the basic braids that are fundamental to Anna And Elsa’s looks – as well as so many other hairstyles. Braidschool includes detailed directions and illustrations for creating traditional, French, Dutch, rope, and fishtail braids.
Each of the 68 hairdos, between the two books, is created on a real child and meticulously photographed in full color to make even the most complicated coiffure easy to achieve. I am not a master-braider and found these books incredibly insightful, breaking down each hairstyle into a very simple process over all.
Both books include very easy to follow, step by step guides with written and photos to accompany each step. They can be purchased here for $12.95 each.
