Abusuly loved this book, it has some really cute Anime/Manga style hair styles that they show you in Manga style and then with a real person and shows you how you can have this kind of style yourself. This was definitely a cute and insightful read. Also would love to do some of the hair styles for myself.

Great for thoughts who are wanting to learn how to do different types of hair styles as well.

There are so many beautiful images in this book, I am excited to use it to colour and draw my own anime hair.

I misunderstood the concept and thought I was getting step-by-step instructions on how to draw epic anime hairstyles (:

Even though my hair isn't long enough to attempt any of these, I think they would be awesome, even on a wig. Loved how the book is set up by difficulty level and with photos and anime illustrations depicting each step of the process.

And I can even use it for my original drawing purposes, now that I have a better understanding of how those hairstyles even work! Thanks for the ARC :)

This a cute book for anyone getting into doing daily anime inspired hairstyles from one of my favorite pink haired YouTubers who is also known as princessmei online. The anime-style step by step illustrations by Yoai gives you a great idea on how to create the look, while Mei is shown and photographed as the final look. I think it was fun that Mei did the Spy x Family Yor hairstyle and of course the iconic Sailor Moon hairstyles. I love that she also did some styles based on Paradise Kiss Miwako hairstyle. This would be a great gift for preteens or teens who like anime, jfashion, or cutesy hairstyles. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book is SO SO CUTE. I'm growing out a pixie cut so I'm gutted I can't try any of these yet, but there's a ton of magical anime-inspired hairstyles, all of which are sorted by difficulty level and each explained thoroughly with step-by-step instructions. For the visual learners like myself, there's step-by-step illustrations in addition to the real life photographs of each style. Super cute and well done. This will be a hit with any anime fans with hair long enough to try some of these out! Or even for styling cosplay wigs if you're so inclined.

It's actually helpful creating these creative hairstyles. For once it does not only includes the tools to archive the desired look but also shows the process step by step. I've also liked that there is a page where the hairstyles are sanctioned by difficulty level.

As a lover of manga and anime, I’ve always been fascinated with the girls’ hairstyles! I have naturally curly hair but lately I’ve been wearing it straight. I’d been wanting to experiment with different hairstyles but didn’t know where to start. I came across this book and fell in love! All of the hairstyles are so cute! I love how the book is divided by skill set and tells you all of the tools you’ll need to recreate every hairstyle. I’ll definitely be purchasing my own copy of this one while I tried a few of the hairstyles, there are so many more I’d like to try my hand at!
