Braids Buns and Twists
From elaborate “up-dos” to casual braids, inspirational hairstyles continue to populate fashion blogs, Pinterest boards, and style magazines everywhere.

Covering classic as well as modern hairstyles and everything from a simple wrapped ponytail to a complex fishtail chignon, this book offers useful facts, invaluable advice, and a wealth of contemporary visual inspiration to help readers understand the challenges and possibilities that each hairstyle offers. Braids, Buns & Twists is aimed at the many people out there who love to experiment with their hair and are either on the look-out for new styles or wish to find inspiration to play with and embellish styles they already know and love. Directory entries enable the reader to choose what style is most appropriate for the occasion, their available time, hair length, and hair type, also indicating how time consuming or difficult the style is to put together. The accompanying step-by-step tutorials then give the reader the instructions they need to replicate that style. Finally, a reference section at the end of the book offers resourceful information on useful tools and equipment as well as courses and further education for those who would like to take hairstyling to a more professional level.

In this New York Times bestselling memoir, Rita Moreno shares her remarkable journey from a young girl with simple beginnings in Puerto Rico to Hollywood legend—and one of the few performers, and the only Hispanic, to win an Oscar, Grammy, Tony and two Emmys. Born Rosita Dolores Alverio in the idyll of Puerto Rico, Moreno, at age five, embarked on a harrowing sea voyage with her mother and wound up in the harsh barrios of the Bronx, where she discovered dancing, singing, and acting as ways to escape a tumultuous childhood. Making her Broadway debut by age thirteen—and moving on to Hollywood in its Golden Age just a few years later—she worked alongside such stars as Gary Cooper, Yul Brynner, and Ann Miller. When discovered by Louis B. Mayer of MGM, the wizard himself declared: “She looks like a Spanish Elizabeth Taylor.” Cast by Gene Kelly as Zelda Zanders in Singin’ in the Rain and then on to her Oscar-winning performance in West Side Story, she catapulted to fame—yet found herself repeatedly typecast as the “utility ethnic,” a role she found almost impossible to elude. Here, for the first time, Rita reflects on her struggles to break through Hollywood’s racial and sexual barriers. She explores the wounded little girl behind the glamorous façade—and what it took to find her place in the world. She talks candidly about her relationship with Elvis Presley, her encounters with Howard Hughes, and the passionate romance with Marlon Brando that nearly killed her. And she shares the illusiveness of a “perfect” marriage and the incomparable joys of motherhood. Infused with Rita Moreno’s quick wit and deep insight, this memoir is the dazzling portrait of a stage and screen star who longed to become who she really is—and triumphed.
