Readers familiar with the TLC television series What Not To Wear will instantly recognize Arrojo, the man responsible for the hair makeover segment of each episode. With the publication of this book, Arrojo joins costars Carmindy (Get Positively Beautiful) and Clinton Kelly (coauthor, Dress Your Best) in building on the popularity of the show. As an educator and practicing professional, Arrojo has more than 20 years of experience and, aside from his TV work, owns Arrojo Studio in New York. Great Hair reads like an in-depth conversation with your stylist. Arrojo's tone is personable, and his approach is accessible. He explains hairdressing terms and techniques, guiding readers through selecting the right salon to choosing the best styles for their hair types.
