"I really like how the procedures are broken down into smaller
segments of application and procedures, they are easier to use,
have clear steps and are not confusing for the students."
"Left handed procedures has been done very effectively and will be a great help for left handed students."
"Most impressively the book covers all content that the Cosmetologist will need to build a foundational career, including basic history, current concepts and future plans, along with substantial techniques in every area pertaining to Cosmetology. Secondly, I find the book to be very organized in relation to order of learning basic, intermediate, and advanced as you progress through the chapters. It is very easy to use in the school setting when starting with beginning students who have no knowledge, or with students of moderate background of the profession and continues to introduce more advanced technique as learning continues. The Chapter Outlines, Learning Objectives, and Key Terms are very organized and coincide with Chapter Subtitles and Chapter Glossary. This organization is super important to the average student who follows guides when well structured, such as this particular book."
