I have been waiting to find this book for less than 100$ for a few years now. It did not disappoint! This book, unlike those of it's ilk, has directions for cuts not just styles. Awesome!

Found this book while researching for a 1940s transformation photo shoot and found the information helpful.

There were plenty of photos and illustrations to show how to create the various styles. The make-up-artists (MUA) that came to the shoot liked the information and used some of the tips while creating the styles.

The results from the 1940s transformation shoot will be up on my photography site take a look and see how the information helped.

A good reference,
Super short. Some interesting vintage pictures, but little useful information; for a free book it was interesting, but I would have been disappointed if I'd paid anything for it. I found the Lauren Rennells vintage hairstyles book much more useful, for me at least.
