Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The experience given in the tips will be invaluable to up and coming barbers; they offer tremendous insight about the heritage of Barbering. A look back at the traditions and manner in which barbershops work will give the new generation of barbers a sense of belonging to a profession that has had continuous growth throughout history. This text offers a bedrock of knowledge that should be handed down to these young men and women."

"We all want our student barbers to absorb as much information on haircutting as possible so they can saturate themselves in this art form. This book gives them basic foundational theory to use as they become more aware of their barbering environment."

"The information is current, and a student who is enrolled in an entry-level program will find the information easy-to-understand, and will be able to implement the services with ease."

"The authors writing style is easy to read and flows from one topic to the next. The language use is very understandable and direct."
