Vincent Roppatte and Sherry Suib Cohen; With a Foreword by Sarah Hughes

St. Martin's Press



Make no mistake-this is not your mother's beauty book. Every teen knows it's all about hair. If your hair looks great, so do you. And what's more, you feel great. A bad hair day might make you want to pull a blanket over your head and stay in bed.

Don't do it. Don't waste a minute of your life feeling insecure and un-pretty. Wanting cool hair doesn't mean you're shallow: it means you know the ripple effect of great hair. You feel smarter, funnier, more assured, as well as prettier. When we know we look good, we attract the best people, we become our best selves.

Vincent Roppatte, style director of the Elizabeth Arden beauty salon in New York's Saks Fifth Avenue, and the celebrity stylist for stars of every age, offers simple and wonderful tips on how to achieve the hair that's most terrific for you. Chockfull of photographs of remarkable makeovers of teens just like you, Cool Hair delivers what you need to know about cut, color, and care for every kind of hair-even the most difficult to manage. There is no such thing as a bad hair day, declares Vincent, and he proves it with quizzes to test your beauty savvy, illustrated instructions for mastering the secret tricks of special styles, and professional techniques straight from one of the most celebrated salons in the world. Chapters on skin and makeup will help you to complete the great adventure of finding a newer, cooler look.

If you are interested in defining your style, Cool Hair's the book to read. In these pages, you will find the most current solutions to achieving fabulous hair. Cool Hair is the direct path to being confident that you look great and that your hair is shining, healthy, attention-getting. Cool Hair can give you the hair you deserve-no matter what kind of hair you were born with. Cool Hair can change your life.
