If you want to be a better hair stylist, much less one of elite, you simply must own this book and refer to it regularly. You cannot do consistently good hair unless you first fully understand what hair is and how the chemicals that you apply in the salon interact with the hair. Hair styling is science first and art second, and not the other way around.
If that isn’t reason enough to read this book, then think of your tips. In a conversation with your client, your client will likely feel reassured by your scientific knowledge on hair and therefor have greater confidence in your ability, which inevitably translates into dollars at the cash register.
