    5 Words: Hair, braids, fantasy, historical, Vikings. My problem is that I suck at braiding my own hair unless it's a three or four strand side braid, so I can't do these on myself. But there's a handy guide at the beginning of the different types of braid and how to do them. But with other people? This was easy. I did them all on my sister.

I've been practicing on myself (it's painful) because the Lagertha and Ragnar styles looked amazing on my sister, and I want them on me. This was a fantastic book of truly bad-ass braids.

I do wish that the basic braids reference section would have had a brief photo tutorial rather than just relying on a verbal description. While the styles in this book do imply that you already have some experience with braids–it’s not a “how to braid” book, rather a “how to style with braids” book–the audience for this seems very wide reaching, and I think even a brief tutorial for the basics would have been nice. (I, for one, cannot successfully braid anything fancier than a half Dutch braid.) Some of the styles also lend themselves more to having someone else help you to style at least part, if not all, of the braids. A note on the style’s intro page about whether another person’s help might be useful would have been nice to see as well! Despite these brief issues, the steps are well explained in the text and understandable without any videos. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves the wide variety of hairstyles in tv and movies. Even if you’re not one to style your hair, it’s still a fun look at how the hairstyles are formed. And if you’re a cosplayer, this would be a very valuable resource as well! Head over to the author’s website, SilvousPlaits, for more tutorials and interviews! Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a free copy to review! (Cross posted on my blog.)

The hairstyles included cover a wide range from practical and sensible for adventurously active heroines, through modest and romantic for regency-era reserved lady-types, all the way to regal and magnificent for powerful ruling ladies. There are also a few more masculine styles. Optimistic (in my opinion) difficulty levels and time required to complete the looks are suggested, as well as lovely photographs and drawings explaining the steps involved to achieve the braids and short descriptions of the necessary hair tools and techniques. Although most of the braids are suitable for formal occasions, many styles can be simplified for everyday use. Great fun for anyone who likes experimenting with hair styles, fans of fantasy and sci-fi characters, or anyone trying to emulate the style of these heroines. I frequently braid my hair, and am excited to try some of these styles. *eARC Netgalley*

    OMG YES! This is the book that I feel like I have been waiting years and years for and I'm so so happy I've got my hands on it! I've always loved braids - my grandma used to give fench and dutch braids when I was younger and then taught me how to do them on myself and they're something I do to my own hair even now, years on, for work and going out. Braids are just such a simple way to make it look like you've made a load of effort with your hair and they always look fantastic! So imagine my delig OMG YES! This is the book that I feel like I have been waiting years and years for and I'm so so happy I've got my hands on it! I've always loved braids - my grandma used to give fench and dutch braids when I was younger and then taught me how to do them on myself and they're something I do to my own hair even now, years on, for work and going out. Braids are just such a simple way to make it look like you've made a load of effort with your hair and they always look fantastic! So imagine my delight when I saw this beauty on NetGalley, I knew I had to request and I'm so glad I did. This is written by Shannon Burns (A.K.A Silvousplaits) who also has a youtube channel & a website and in it she re-creates a lot of famous hairstyles from a lot of famaous TV programmes, films and games. There's such a great range of hairstyle in here which cater for every experience level. In the front it contains sections on what tools you may need and also all the simple braids which are used in book such as a normal braid, french braids, dutch braids, fishtail braids and 2 strand braids with simple explanations on how to do them. And each hairstyle itself has a skill level, time it will take and tools you will need. There's a massive range of both updo's and also hair half up/half down and a great range within those categories too - there are some which are very formal and regal looking which I probably wouldn't wear everyday and also more badass and simpler looking which are perfect for everyday to make it look like you put loads of serious effort into your hair. This features hair from Game of Thrones, Vikings, Sailor Moon, Leia and Rey from Star Wars, Outlander, Hunger games, Final Fantasy and Wonder Woman just to name a few! It's absolutely brilliant being able to re-create your favourite hairstyles from your favourite moveies, TV and games which is great. The only thing I would have liked was slightly clearer images as they are pencil sketch style drawings which could end up being a bit confusing however there are also explanations on how to carry out each step and I think if you know the basic braids mentioned to be used in that hairstyle, then it shouldn't be too hard to re-create the looks! I would definitely recommened picking this up if you're a braid lover like myself and I honestly can't wait to try some of these on myself! If you want to take a look at Silvousplaits work before you purchase the book, she does have a website where she posts some of her braids. Thank you so so much to NetGalley and especially to Silvousplaits / Shannon Burns for writing this beauty of a book which is my new hair bible and also to Race Point Publishing for providing me with the Advanced copy. I would also like to state that all opinions on this book are my own and are honest. I will definitely be picking this up in a physical copy when it's published as I have a feeling I'm going to be using it on a daily basis! *** I haven't put a read date on this because it's an instruction book and I therefore don't want it to count towards my Goodreads challenge. I did look through the book and read the instrucitons in detail and I 'read' this on January 19th 2018 ***

Badass Braids: From Vikings to Game of Thrones, 50 Maverick Looks for Sci-Fi and Fantasy Fanatics has me wishing I had my long hair back, and willing to go through the awkward regrowth process so that I can try more of these out. This book offers readers a good deal of information on the tools and tricks for perfect braiding. I liked the amount of detail given about the different combs, brushes, other tools and decorations that could be used and how or why you might want to use one or another. The tips and instructions are all well done and very detailed, but never talk down to the readers, which sometimes happens in how-to books of every variety. I also like that there is information on the character each style is based on with each style, both including who they are portrayed by and some information on the real character from history, literature, and so on. The combination of photographs, illustrations, and step by step instructions make the process easy to follow on your own. Badass Braids: From Vikings to Game of Thrones, 50 Maverick Looks for Sci-Fi and Fantasy Fanatics is a wonderful book for hair and braid lovers, and those looking to emulate the characters from various shows and movies. It could also be helpful for cosplay, conventions, and other costumed events. While not everyone needs this book, anyone wanting to expand their knowledge of hairstyles in general, and braiding in particular, would do well to get this book.

    A how-to guide for recreating the hairstyles from various franchises. There are 45 different looks in this book, a number that includes multiple characters from Vikings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, and Black Sails as well as individual characters like Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy, Vanessa Ives from Penny Dreadful, Maeve Millay from Westworld, Morgana from Merlin, and Lucrezia Borgia from The Borgias.

There's even a chapter recreating hairstyles from animated sources, such as Katara from Avatar, Astrid from How to Train Your Dragon, and Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn. In other words: if you have ever wanted a character's cool hairstyle, it is probably included in this book. Each hairstyle comes with written instructions, step-by-step drawings, and photographs, a combination that works very well. If I didn't understand something in the instructions, I could look at the drawing, and if that was unclear, I could study the photos. Also, silvousplait's youtube videos FINALLY taught me how to french braid my own hair, a feat 33 years of life of had not managed. The styles are mostly intended for hair long enough to braid, unsurprisingly, though Burns does include tips on how to use hair extensions. Her instructions tend toward assuming that one is dealing with straight, fine hair. My own is extremely curly and thick, but I just ignored directions to tease it for volume, for example, and didn't have a problem. Some of the styles would probably not be suitable for kinky or coiled hair (types 4A-C, in curl typology), but others would work fine. Overall, this is an excellent book if you enjoy stealth cosplay or experimenting with unusual ways of wearing your hair. Highly recommended. I read this as an ARC via NetGalley.

    This was great! I've been a subscriber of Shannon's YouTube channel for years, and I was so excited to see that she had come out with a book. She's really good at breaking down complicated hairstyles and making them easier to replicate through clear and concise instructions. I loved how this book was organized by genre, and there was such a wide variety of hairstyles from a lot of different shows and movies. Highly recommended!

    I love it when books are on the sixth-sense level! I've literally been searching for insane braids, and this book won me over (it had me at the title - Westworld and GOT-inspired braids?! AWESOME). This book was perfect for me, since I'm a bit instruction-challenged. I need pictures and simple instructions and the fact that the braids are inspired by amazing shows just tickles me pink. It's exactly what I've been looking for!

    I'll admit this review is going to be utterly and completely biased by the fact I have followed Shannon's hair styles YouTube channel under the name Silvousplaits for almost two years now. In her videos, she breaks down even the most complicated hairstyles in a basic, step-by-step approach, letting you know ahead of time what skills you will need to have, and how long it will approximately take to do them.

I found her channel knowing how to do a basic three-strand (or English) braid and absolutely nothing else. Through her videos, I now know how to do many different styles, and have worn styles from Game of Thrones, Vikings, Star Wars, and many other fandoms in my day-to-day life. The point that I am making here is that Shannon is absolutely a great teacher when it comes to video instructions. But would that transfer over to a written format? It does! Badass Braids combines the easy step-by-step formula I've come to known with drawings and photos on how the finished product should look, sprinkled with tidbits about historical accuracy, or behind the scenes info of the different shows. For those of us coming in from her channel, there's a lot of her most popular videos now transformed for a book, but plenty of new styles to make it worth a read through. It is an informative and entertaining guide that takes the approach that anyone can do these styles with enough time and patience. From personal experience, they're right! If I, who for the first twenty-six year of her life could only do one style of braid can now tackle styles worn by Lagertha, Princess Leia, and Daenerys Stormborn, you can too! Just remember, keep the Pinterest rule in mind. It's never going to look exactly like it does on the page. Gotta practice, practice, practice to get up to expert level in any subject, even braiding.

Every hairstyle came with a small bio on the TV show/film character in question and there were a lot of tidbits on hair care or how character development was conveyed through hair and stuff like that. It's really well put together and I highly recommend.

    My kid has very long hair and likes it plaited and wanted to try something new so we found this book in the cheap bin at the library. I have never been lucky enough to have hair that you can do stuff like this too, so when I married my husband and gained a kid with hair almost to their bum I was like "Yay! Someone with hair to play with." I always wanted to do Lagetha's Viking hairstyle, and now I have. It looked adorable but my kid's teacher complained about it. Maybe other kids were jealous? =)

    This would be a great fit for anyone who is a fan of historical, fantasy, science fiction or dystopian hairstyles. The photographs are a bit hit or miss for me as many are dark and not lighted well to show the hairstyle detail well. Directions for each style are clear and accompanied by drawn illustrations which are very helpful. Thank you to Quarto Group and Edelweiss for the opportunity to read and review this book. All comments are my own, unbiased opinion.

    This is the book I always want to own. Man, I wish I’d had this when I was in school, then my nickname would not have been ‘Sea Witch,’ on account of my unruly hair, but more like ‘Hail Her Mighty Magnificence’ or something along those lines. I’m not saying all the braids in this book are easy to do on your own and they will definitely take time to master but it will be so worth it when they write about you hundreds of years ago and say, ‘above all else, that person had phenomenal braids!’

The hairstyles shown looked cool and I think that the fact that they all had the level of difficulty in their description was helpful. It had a nice variety of hairstyles, and I liked the fact that some of the braids were exemplified on men. Because I have shoulder-length hair, I was only able to try a few of them, but I liked the way they looked.
