Ordered this book to review information. It has been awhile since I have used my Cosmotology license and wanted to find a book that would help refresh my memory and update on latest techniques. I was very happy with this book it was alot more technical than my old Milady book circa 1989.

I really like the lay out of this book very colorful very detailed easy to follow along. Instead of seing mannequins there are pictures of live models. This is the best book yet for beginner cosmetology students.

I LOVE my new book!!! I am currently a Cosmo Student and we are using the 2008 edition of the book. I decided to purchase this one on my own because it keeps up with the trends and has more information and technique than the other version. The pictures are beautiful and colorful.

I went to beauty school in the 1980s and this book is a far cry from the dry sparsely illustrated text that we had back then.

Just one simple example: In my old cosmo book it said that our hair cutting shears were NOT shears, but scissors and that it was "incorrect" to call them shears. Well, that may *technically* be true, but out in the beauty world they are simply called "shears". I noticed that this new Milady book does not bother with information that is clearly irrelevant to the industry. I mean, how would it sound if you went around telling everyone that their shears were not in fact shears but scissors? Nonsense.

It goes into detail with cutting and other techniques, the photos and explanations are excellent. I am studying to retake my state board exam (I passed it way back when and I recently allowed my license to lapse) and this book will be very helpful. There are some changes since I was in beauty school, but I am confident that this book will help me to acquire the knowledge I need to pass my state board exam again.

I finished cosmetology in 2003 and did not get to keep my book so I ordered this one to have as a refresher and professional reference. Man is it great!!! Very vivid, more detailed info, and it captures every learner. There are bold color pages with step by step illustrations and very to the point instructions. It also has a timeline of cosmetology and focuses a little more on being a productive businessman/businesswoman. Really glad I made the purchase!!!!

I bought this as part of a trio for my cosmetology class and I'm amazed at how thorough and easy to follow everything is! The pictures really help and the review questions and key terms are very useful when studying for an exam. Love it!

They really did a good job updating this version of Milady's. The pictures are better, the diagrams are more detailed and the information is much more current. Do yourself a favor and update your version!
