The Best Hair Book Ever!
It does get into how to find the best haircut for your face shape, some basic "how to braid" and select the correct hairbands for your hair texture type, but most of the book is about how to style longer hair and pop accessories in. Rose has very short hair, and it's very, very thin. Even with longer hair, none of these styles would work without so much hairspray that I'd have to be concerned about stray sparks from candles 20 feet away.
I certainly don't think it's worth the $14.99 list price unless your daughter looks like the girl from Brave and has no idea what to do with all that fluffy hair.
Side note: I appreciate that the social life of the girls depicted in the book revolve around wholesome pursuits like sports, church-going and get-togethers at home, but not appreciated is the thought that girls must have "a glam elastic hairband, a hair tie and hairspray" on them at all times in case their hair gets mussed. "Crisis averted!" Um, no. It's not a "crisis" when your hair's a mess. Let's teach our girls to be beautiful people inside and out without prescribing that they cart about glam- anything.
