This Book Of Braids Is Everything We've Ever Wanted

There are moments in our ongoing search for the newest, prettiest braid creation where we feel as though we've reached the end of the plait world. After all, there's only so many ways you can braid your hair... Or is there? When Braids, Buns, and Twists by Christina Butcher landed on our desks this week, we immediately grabbed the Post-It notes and went to town bookmarking the pages that were making us squeal with delight and surprise (there are many).
Make no mistake: This isn't just some Pinterest-style eye candy. With each gorgeous photo is an incredibly easy, illustrated how-to. And, there's something to be said for how pleasing it is to page through looks instead of scrolling through them. Remember books? They're a good thing.
Click through to see some of our favorite looks from this little treasure.
