I learned how to do lots of really awesome and unique updo styles while reading "Hair: A Book of Braiding and Styles". I work around food so I always have to have my hair up/out of my face and I was really struggling with finding cute updo styles that weren't your everyday bun or ponytail. This book really helped me get creative and experiment with new styles that I really enjoy. The directions are very easy to understand and include a clear visual to guide you while you style your hair.
The only real "hair style" book I'd actually recommend for longer hair, this book shows an array of creative styles while making other classics easier than ever.

My sister and I have had this book since we were children and used it many times. Even with the internet as a resource on everything ever, I still turn to this book when I want to find a new and challenging hair style to try out on my long hair. The instructions are very clear with excellent visuals that are useful both for styling someone else's hair or for styling your own.
This was the book that finally made me "get" complicated braids, and it's spoiled me for all other braiding books. They just confuse me because I always try instinctively to use techniques from this one. I lost my copy about ten years ago and really want another one...
My brain shuts down upon seeing the more complex braiding styles - it's something to do with spatial relations. This book has some of the clearest descriptions of how to braid that I've ever seen, along with some ideas you don't see every day.
