Video may have killed the radio star but it certainly is creating a new crop of publishing powerhouses. The latest to make the leap being Sasha Coefield, otherwise known as AskSash88 on YouTube, who has taken her hit YouTube channel off-screen and onto the shelves of your local bookstore. With the launch of her first book, DIY Braids: From Crowns to Fishtails, Easy, Step-by-Step Hair Braiding Instructions, Coefield is now letting readers in on her chic plaiting secrets.

Featuring easy-to-follow instructions and expert tips from the hairstyle guru herself, all the fashion-forward braids you have ever wanted to learn are here without having to step into an expensive salon. There are the traditional fishtail and French braids as well as the one-of-a-kind looks that are better suited to more expert hands such as the Dutch Braided Headband. We especially love the insider secrets Sasha shares on how to prep your gorgeous mane and adorn contemporary plaits with fun accessories. Whether it be for the office or a glam holiday soirée, braids are still very much en vogue—see our gallery of Stephan Caras or Caitlin Power from WMCFW SS ’14—and Coefield’s more than 160,000 YouTube subscribers can attest to that.

Coefield’s book is now available at local bookstores and online at Amazon.ca.
