Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Milady?s Standard Nail Technology Revised, 5th Edition has been thoroughly revised to include the most up-to-date information available to nail technologists. The text incorporates recommendations from state boards of cosmetology, classroom instructors, school owners, manufacturers, and practitioners, ensuring greater success for students taking the state board examinations and greater protection for nail service clients. The text provides an excellent overview of topics to get a new nail tech started, such as professional image, customer relations, and salon management, while thoroughly teaching the nail technologist how to perform the basic processes that will be the starting point for their career. This revised text also focuses on the scientific knowledge that is most important to the nail tech, removing the medical terminology and information that is not useful to them. Special features of the text include business tips in the form of short stories that present helpful information for a successful career in the nail business; State Regulation Alert, and Here?s A Tip, which direct students to additional sources of information. This is a must-have resource for any student who wants to learn the basics of nail technology and competently prepare for the state board examinations.

In order to make for easier implementation, select editorial content from Milady's Standard Nail Technology and Milady's Standard Cosmetology have been aligned. This new format makes this the most complete resource for students to kick off their nail technology careers. Also included are brand new photographs and art that depict nail technicians performing their work and serving their clients encompassed by more than 400 pieces of art throughout the book, including procedural art.

Synopsis:

Milady's Standard Nail Technology, Sixth Edition is a completely comprehensive textbook, designed to introduce aspiring nail tech professionals to all of the various aspects, products, and services involved in nail technology, and to launch them into a rewarding and successful career path.
