Review for Dreamy Anime Hair

Review for Dreamy Anime Hair

Dreamy Anime Hair by Mei Yan, Hairstyles, Non-Fiction, Anime, FunI received this book from Edelweiss/the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

I just couldn’t resist this book when I saw it up on Edelweiss. I love anime + I am always interested in some fun new hairstyles to try out, bonus if they are from an anime show that I love.

In this fun book we get around 30 hairstyles from various anime, like Shugo Chara or My Hero Academia or Sailor Moon. The book is split in three sections. You start with easy hairstyles, go to intermediate, and then advanced. There are also basics mentioned before we start with the hairstyles. Like how to make various braids or what items to use to make these styles. And then the real fun starts with an introduction to each hairstyle followed by clear and good instructions on how to get that specific hairstyle. I could follow it quite easily, sometimes though with the harder ones I had to re-read/re-check the pictures to see what happened. But in overall I am very happy with the instructions. I am not really a pro at hairstyles so I am happy I can just easily follow along. At the moment of writing this (late January) I have yet to try out some hairstyles but I hope to get started real soon. I just need a rat-tail comb, and those bun makers. I got the round ones, but for some you need a long shaped one that can roll up.

I loved all the various anime that were selected. Not just newer ones but also older ones. Some iconic ones. There were several that had a style of hair that I had wanted to try for a long time so it made me very happy.

I love how at the beginning with the introduction we get to see how the hair looks on a real person (our writer) and the instructions are done in illustrations. I love that for two reasons 1) I love the style of the illustrations 2) with real hair at times it is hard to see what is going on but in illustrations it is clear. Hope that makes sense.

I won’t be able to do a few of these as they require the use of a curling iron and I am just not going for that in my life, haha. But maybe I will get creative and make curls another way. Just sleep with curling thingies in my hair or something like that. Haha.

Do you love anime? Do you love hairstyles and getting creative? Then be sure to check out this book.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
