Milady's Standard Textbook of Cosmetology has led the way in cosmetology education for 80 years by changing to meet the evolving needs of students and the market. With this new edition, the changes are dramatic. The fresh new text layout, completely new and reorganized chapters, and all new photography and illustrations provide the open, easy-to-follow format that students need with the reliability that is the hallmark of Milady. By changing to meet the needs of today's students and educators, the Standard remains the number-one choice for cosmetology programs throughout the United States, Canada, and the world. The new Standard is organized into six parts containing 26 chapters, each written by an industry expert in the field, creating an immediate connection to the professional world. New chapters and content were decided upon after extensive research in the form of 600 surveys, two focus groups, and 36 in-depth reviews. With that as a starting point, Milady recruited 20 of the top experts in the field to contribute to the text, followed by a reworking of their material by a professional writer to ensure a uniform reading level throughout. Another three dozen reviewers were enlisted to evaluate the material, ensuring the accuracy and comprehensiveness of the content. The result is the most reliable cosmetology textbook available, one that covers all essential information in a contemporary, easy-to-use manner.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the book my Cosmetology School uses Nov. 20 2001
Format:Paperback
I bought the 1996 version of this book in June of 2000 and within one month I was signed up for cosmetology school. Then I got to school and they used the 2000 edition so I was already prepared. For those who think this book doesn't go into detail please realize that this is a textbook and it is part of a series of books for teaching. There are 2 workbooks that go along with this book. One for Theory and one for Practical. I was given a 1990 edition of this book as well by a friend of mine. The most noticable change between the 3 editions is that the 2000 edition has more actual photographs and fewer illustrations. If you are using this book for school study then I do recommend you buy the state board exam review booklet. Then when you have free time you can quiz yourself. Just remember that this book is meant to be used along with an instructor. If you are looking for a haircutting book only then I don't think you want this one. It only has a few pages on haircutting and about 12 pictures of haircut instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and Detailed July 23 2002
Format:Paperback
When I was taking Cosmetology back in the 2000-01 school year, they recommended to purchase this version of Milady's Standard Textbook of Cosmetology. They were only available new in Canada and cost [money], and came with the theory book as well. Our teacher also had the old 1996 version of this textbook for sale, used. However, this is a better purchase. There are more pictures and colors, its not as drab as the previous version. I have to disagree with reviewers who said this is not a detailed book, I found it to be quite detailed and informative in its information. The book meant to be used in a classroom setting, where an instructor teachers and elaborates from this book. You cannot read this book and automatically cut hair, that is where the practical aspect of cosmetology comes in, when you are doing it hands on instead of reading. But this is a helpful tool for aspiring apprentices or students in cosmetology, whether you want to learn about Coloring, Perms, whatever the case, this is definately a worthwhile tool to have.
