Great Hair Days by session stylist Luke Hersheson is a modern guide to hair, featuring everything from product ingredients insight, to the shampoos, treatments, sprays, gels and mousses that are worth buying (a refreshingly non-partisan list) and easy styling tricks, all peppered with anecdotes from a career spent in salons and behind the scenes, creating some of the most wearable looks of our times, at fashion shows and shoots.
‘I do maintain that if your hair is wrong, your entire life is wrong.’
The looks in the book are desirable: beachy waves, easy layers, messy fringes, casual up-dos, choppy bobs, with Luke demystifying the language of hair styling, making almost anything seem possible.
Along with the practical stuff (what to eat for great hair; hiding a thinning hairline) Luke’s low key approach to a high octane industry makes this book an entertaining and informative read as well as perhaps the best insight into a career in hair for any aspiring stylist.
And if all that wasn’t enough, you can get the book in a choice of pink, blue or purple covers – talk about bespoke beauty!
