For fans of Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest comes a hip, gorgeous doodle coloring book about all things hair. Unlike other adult coloring books, which depict nature scenes and cityscapes, this title celebrates strong, confident women with a passion for style, design, and fashion.

Revel in the mesmerizing patterns and intricate details of Andrea Pippins’s delicate pen-and-ink illustrations, ready for you to color, complete, and embellish. Lose yourself in page after page of bold hairstyles and accessories, from rows of braids, to Mohawks, to sweeping updos, to cascades of ribbons and beads. Be transported to another world as you ink in Medusa’s slithering coiffure, Cleopatra’s elaborate headdress, and Marie Antoinette’s towering bouffant.

Perfect for experienced color-inners and newcomers alike. Coloring enthusiasts of all ages will love this empowering and stylish book. So go ahead—let your hair down, grab some pens or pencils, and add some color to your life.

This is my first review dedicated to a coloring book. So honestly I didn't know where to begin or end. Just know that this coloring book is fantastic. Each page gives you a different design that is dedicated to hair with great messages. The pages are very easy to color and you will catch yourself sitting for hours engrossed in the pages. There isn't one intricate design I didn't love, you flip through the pages and struggle to pick one to start with because you want to color them all. I used colored pencils only when coloring on the pages and they worked very well. The paper used in the book is not thin and can take the beating on colored pencils being pressed into the pages. As far as any other type of coloring tool such as markers, crayons or pens, I think you can use all of them and not have any issues.

If I have to say one great thing about this coloring book, is that the pages are not busy, you are not overwhelmed by the lovely designs. As you can see I have shared some samples of what you will find inside the coloring book.

Highly recommend for this Holiday season!
