    Please save your money

    I am not a haircare professional and was hoping to come up with ideas I could share with my stylist. Except for the cover, there is not one single picture of a head of hair, a strand of hair, or even a picture of a split end...not one!! I would expect any book dealing with something as tactile as hair would be loaded with pictures. Lots of what to do and not to do. If that is what you are looking for here, please save your money. This is one of the diffiiculties of the NOOK, not being able to take a quick glance at what to expect. Your money would best be spent on some nice informative hairstyle magazines.
