    The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins

    Princess Aerity's hair is FAB. It’s very, “just casually running through the middle of a forest with my billowing dress and beautiful hair.” This is exactly the kind of hair I'd want if I was a princess in a fantasy retelling of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale!

    Shadowshaper by Daniel José Older

    We know those colors aren't real, but could you imagine having a head of flawless curls bursting with Manic Panic rainbows?

    Winterspell by Claire Legrand

    We wish we could achieve this level of artfully messy curls. Instead, ours usually look like a bird’s nest whenever we try to do the “carefree” look.

  4. 4

    Cress by Marissa Meyer

    Note to self: start taking those hair, skin and nail supplements so my mane can get as long as Cress' on this book cover! Also, is there a YouTube tutorial on how to get a braid like this?

    P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

    The perfect ponytail! Curling your hair makes it look fancier but not too fancy. The bunny ear ponytail holder really cinches the deal.

    A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis

    Her life may be terrible but her hair is GREAT! It’s another one of those casual looks with a wind machine we seriously wish we could achieve.

  7. 7

    Happily Ever After by Kiera Cass

    Is it weird to bring a photo of a book cover to a hair dresser for prom and just tell them, “THIS”? I'm asking for a friend.

  8. 8

    Insurgent by Veronica Roth

    It's very rare to find a girl with short hair on the cover of a YA novel, so we were stoked when they released the movie tie-in edition jacket design, featuring Tris with her "short hair don't hair" style!

    The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler

    Hair accessories can totally help transform your style, and putting a flower in your hair really accentuates the summer vibes! 💯💯💯💯

    Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

    The tagline of this book says "Never trust a pretty girl with an ugly secret" but really it should say "Never trust a pretty girl with insanely messy hair who also happens to be covered in mud."
