As a sampling of the hairstyles available in Mr. Biton's book, these upstyles should serve as reason enough to expect copies to fly off the shelves. There's something for everyone here - from the hip and trendy, to classic formal - and when you add that the books include instructions on creating these styles, it's a must have for any salon or even for those who just want some fresh styling ideas for their own hair.
 

Side-swept Partial Up-style

This side-swept style features soft twists and full sprays of curl to create a casually elegant look in a partial up-style. The finely executed highlights add accent and definition to the look without being too artificial.
 
The hair color is rich and dimensional and the style would make a great spring formal or fancy garden party hairdo.
 

Inspiration from Ancient Greece

Smooth and sleek twists draw the hair away from the face in this hairstyle that calls to mind an inspiration from ancient Greece. The mass of knots at the nape give texture and interest to the hair while maintaining a controlled, sophisticated look.
 
The multi-tonal hair color gives each independent twist its own demarcation enhancing the look of the up-style.
 

Half-Up Half-Down Style

Half-up half-down hair style
 
Half-up, half-down, all sensual; with the foreground divided into an off-center parting. This partial up-style keeps its casual glamour with a volumized crown and a fall of smooth waves.
 
The look has a 60s movie star image inspired by the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Lauren. It's a perfect style for any woman who wants to sing her siren song.
 

Partial Up-Style

Once again into the classic styling, this partial up-style features smooth, sleek lines and soft sweeping curls in the ends of the hair. This clean, crisp silhouette is perfect for an evening in the clubs or at an upscale event.
 
The styling and finish of the look make ample use of the finely-tuned color to give the hairstyle a glistening shine.
 

Sausage Curls

Hairstyle with sausage curls
 
Feathered layers and sausage curls scream 70s, and this buttery-blonde hair is literally glowing with this super-soft style. With one side swept smooth along the scalp to fall in a spiral of cleanly-defined curls the hairstyle is balanced by the diffused fly-back layers framing the opposing side.
 

Chic Up-Style

Chic up-style with simple 1990s hair styling
 
If the 90s gave us anything, they gave us an appreciation for simple hair styling. Bumping up the volume in the top section of the hair and drawing the lengths back loosely to the crown section gives us a chic up-style that is made edgy by the straight ends of the hair beyond the confines of the styling.
 
This is a quintessential 90s hairstyle and would be at home on the red carpet or at the hippest clubs in the city.
 

Fan of Hair

Up-style with a fan of hair for a medium haired woman
 
Proving that you don't need waist-length hair to wear your hair up, this loosely-confined up-style is crafted from neck-length layers gathered at the crown and arranged into a soft fan of hair.
 
The hair is lovely and makes a dramatic statement. It's an ideal hairstyle for any medium haired woman who wants a dramatic up-turn and to create a high-end profile.
 

Cocktail Party Hairstyle

Hairstyle for a cocktail party or an outdoor wedding
 
Whether it's an outdoor wedding in an autumn forest or a cocktail party at a Malibu manse, this hairstyle is all set to combine up-styled elegance with a soft halo. The tendrils create a visually impacting crown and can be dressed up by adding simple elements like flowers, beads or gemstones.
 

Up-Style for Younger Women

Playful up-style for younger women
 
This knotty look gives up-styles a whole new element. The pale blonde locks are drawn up into scalp-hugging knots and the loose ends are arranged in soft curving tendrils to create a hairstyle that's playful, yet elegant in its whimsy. This makes a fantastic prom style or fancy dress style for younger women.
 

Daytime Event Hairstyle

Long hairstyle for a daytime wedding or a special event
 
While not really an up-style, this multi-tonal ginger-hued look features an elegantly-woven coronet crafted from the wearer's own hair. The smooth tresses beneath the crown fall to form spiraling copper coils at the ends.
 
The hairstyle is ideal for a daytime wedding or special event and make a dramatic statement of elegance.
 

Almost Up-Style

An almost up-style that features a bumped up crown section, a parted fringe, face-framing tendrils and long, flowing curls. All this is created in a head full of multi-tonal colors with rich, natural hues. Anyone who says a woman can't have it all, needs to give that woman this hairstyle and watch her shine.
 

Nape-Gathered Knot

Nape-gathered knot with an old-world chignon
 
This nape-gathered knot features elements of old fashioned inspiration. Calling to mind the old-world chignon, the classic roll-up bun and the braided coils, this hairstyle combines these elements to create a unique look that is both simple in its silhouette and still visually captivating. The braids and coils are playful while the smooth-tucked roll at the nape says pure elegance.
