Here's how we know that Braids, Buns, and Twists, the new book by braiding expert Christina Butcher, is the best hair guide out there: Because the girl in the photo above with the really awesome braid crown is Butcher herself. If you can do a style that awesome on your own head, you've got our attention. 

After starting the website Hair Romance, which gives how-tos for basically every hair style ever, and publishing three online books, Butcher decided to create a hard copy encyclopedia of hair. "I got into braids and buns because I've got naturally curly hair and sometimes a ponytail looks scruffy for work and school," Butcher told us over Skype from her native Australia. After experimenting she chose 82 styles, wrote out step-by-step tutorials, and voila, Braids, Buns, and Twists was born. 

Out of all the awesome styles, we picked our three favorites to highlight for you: The Grecian Braid Crown, The Braided Side Bun, and The Bouffant (Read: Bardot) Pigtails. Check out those how-tos in the gallery and order your copy of Braids, Buns, and Twists here!
