An excerpt:

''There long has been a crying need for a textbook dealing with all phases of haircutting and styling from a master craftsman with an understanding of hairstyling for face type.

Here, at last, is a comprehensive textbook, the written material and superb illustrations for which show the fine points of hairshaping and hairstyling in such a way that even a non-professional can grasp the ideas.

The author's thorough understanding of hairstyling problems is the sum and substance of the ability, the artistic and practical knowledge that have made him one of the country's outstanding artists in the hairdressing profession.

this Book wins my wholehearted approval as a textbook for beauty culture schools, for practicing hairstylists the world over, and for the average woman who, from its contents, can guide her beauty steps toward the goal of successful and happy living.''
