Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Marie Claire Hair and Good to Great Hair both provide innovative hair designs and insights from top stylists in beautifully designed texts. Of the two, Vetica's book is more accessible and truly delivers clear, step-by-step instructions. Vetica has more than 30 years of experience, including a roster of celebrity beauty and fashion icons as clients. While a bit heavy on autobiography, his book includes makeovers for women of various ages and hair types and translates high glamour and special-event hairstyles for nonprofessionals. Readers looking for more everyday, straightforward hair-care information and advice are even better served by Nick Arrojo's Great Hair: Secrets to Looking Fabulous and Feeling Beautiful Everyday. Though it includes quick, general tips about hair care and style, Milgram's book seems more appropriate for professionals and is only recommended for special collections or for large public libraries where similar titles circulate widely. Good to Great, on the other hand, is suitable for a general audience owing to its celebrity appeal and more practical approach.

    THE PERFECT GIFT

    I purchased this book for my sister-in-law, who is a professional hair colorist for celebrities. She found this book to be very informative and started reading it the day I gave it to her.
