5.0 out of 5 stars Professional Beauty Therapy by Nordmann 2 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the recommended text for beauty and massage level 3. I am doing the VTCT Level 3 Massage course with a major private college. The book is extremely useful and covers the required topics thoroughly. It isn't boring as it is well illustrated, nicely laid out and offers career case studies to motivate the student.

An excellent purchase and well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Read 4 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good technical beauty book.

I have bought as a refresher to the current requirements and techniques as Beauty Salon Owner and needed to understand quickly what my staff will be trained in

Much more detailed than I remember my own professional training book at the time and covers a comprehensive range of techniques and professional guidance
