I like the way Phil Morgese explains hair in terms that he feels his students can relate to. He says "It's like wrapping a rubber band around an extension cable." From fishtails to twisted braids, Morgese has free tutorials on his YouTube page. I think the videos are good for everyone who wants to learn how to style long hair! I may even wind up using a few of these tricks on my updo!
