'The Hairdressing Profession is one of the oldest known to mankind, yet strangely enough very little literature has hitherto existed in relation to the technical side of this most honourable and ancient profession... Hairdressing is not only an art, it is also a craft. Therefore, in order to produce a complete treatise, we have gathered together a group of contributors each of whom is a specialist in one or more branches of his craft... This book represents the first and only one of its kind in the English language, comprising a comprehensive treatise on hairdressing, ranging from the relatively simple tasks of the gentleman's hairdresser to the more involved technique of the ladies' hairdresser and the beauty specialist, and including necesssary and essential knowledge for the trichological consulting room.'
