ROCK N' HAIR




I was sent a new book on hairstyling: Rock n' Hair, made by a team of vintage loving ladies!

The book has been available in German before, but has now also come out in English.


This differs a bit from the other books on vintage hairstyling I've come across: it serves more as a source for inspiration and gives small tips on how to get a vintage inspired look for everyday wear. The styles are such that you should be able to make them without a lot of preparation before; new takes on classic do's.


The hairstyles are divided into everyday wear and special occasions, and the do's are labeled simple, moderate or difficult - but all in all, the difficult level still is something you could pull off even tough new in the game.



Some of the hairstyles seem very easy to make by following the steps, but with others I feel there could have been more pictures. However, I also think it is a good thing not to have too many step-by-step pictures, as we all have different hair and cuts and what works on a particular model might work a bit differently for you; you still get good guidance from the text in the book and you can use the pictures mainly as ideas when styling your own hair.


The book also has some extra spreads with inspiration-pics, as well as a short section on men's hairstyling and make up.

I actually like the layout of this book better than the one of some other similar ones; it is simple and fresh.

This would make a good book for those who are not used to styling hair and to those who like vintage style and do not know where to begin.  For the pros, this might be a nice extra in the bookshelf- if you know your way around pin curls and such a bit more already I think this book will mainly serve as giving new ideas or variations on the hairstyles  already in your repertoire. Also, if you otherwise do not really go for retro or so but need a look for a fancy party or themed event both for you and your hubby this could be a good source!


Last but not least, the nice lades from Rock n'Hair has offered one lucky reader the chance to win a copy!

The winner will be drawn randomly. You enter by leaving a comment on this post, and you know the deal: only ONE comment per person, unless you share this giveaway out there somewhere on the interwebs. You get another entry per share.  If you share it, leave me a link to your post/mention. Also, as the book is made by a small team and lots of goodwill I think it would be nice if you'd link to the Rock n' Hair site -http://www.rocknhair.de - in your mention too.
Make sure you are reachable to me trough your comment!

The giveaway is open for a week, until June 13 and the winner will be announced shorty thereafter.
(Unless I'm giving birth or so, then it will take a few days longer. You never know).

If you don't want to try your look you can get the book home straight away by ordering it from the Rock n'Hair team, or via AmazonHappy styling!

Annie said...

The pictures look so good that this has to be a good book. I also hate those DIY vintage books that are way too into copying the original style with original methods. This one seems to have more modern (and easier) touch but still ending up looking great ;)

Lauren said...

Looks wonderfully stylish. The photographs really capture a sense of energy. I have short hair but I'm sure (and hope) they'll be some styles to suit. All the best for the next couple weeks!

This looks like a lovely book! I'm pretty confident at styling my own hair but I do a lot of stage work and a guide to more vintage looks would come in handy. I'd love to win this!

Mrs J said...

Yes please, I could really use a book like that. Next time I try giving my husband a rockabilly haircut I might actually succeed!

Oola said...

Oooh I would love that book, even thou I´m quite self-learned to do vintage-style hair to myself and friends, victory rolls and such. But always more inspiration and good pictures in a book are lovely, since reading from net gives me headache! *lady luck be kind to me*

sandels said...

Voi, tämä saattaisi olla juurikin se mitä tarvitsen. Luonnonkosmetiikkaan siirtymisen jälkeen hiusten kunto on parantunut huimasti mutta samalla on jääneet kauniit kampauksetkin unholaan. Sopivat muotoilutuotteet kun ovat hakusessa, hyvät vinkit ovat kultaakin kalliimpia.

Lisa said...

Tämä tulisi tarpeeseen!

Oooohhh very exciting! I would love to be the winner!
BTW-you are still looking so beautiful mama!
