My Book Review of "Standards Text Book For Professional Estheticians."

My book is called Standards Textbook for Professional Estheticians, and  was written by Joel Gerson. Since the whole book isn't about hair, I found a few pages in Chapter Two "The History of grooming and cosmetology." I'll start this with the Egyptians.  They are the first people we know that started cosmetology and their face, nails, and hair were seen as a fine art, The most popular hairstyles you would find from them would of been there elaborate wigs and head dresses. I wish there was more information on them, like why they felt so strongly about their beauty status with there hair. Then we'd move on to Hebrews. Hebrews were also known for their cleanliness and loved  fragrances.the Hebrews were  known for their beautiful skin and hair.

The Romans stole most of their beauty tricks from the Greeks, like their oils. Men started the trend of shaving and it quickly became popular. They also discovered products that made bleach and dyes for what we'd use today on our hair, As this book goes on I found a lot of information I had already blogged about with Africans and Japanese. I noticed there was a lot of information I had already learned in this book.

But then, it moved to the Middle Ages the time of royalty and knights, castles of wealth,and the poor peasants. During the time where the poor couldn’t afford any fashion,Though for the wealthier class Head dresses were all the rage! Their intricate hairstyles, are just very fancy braids would be the best way to explain it. I felt they needed a lot more information on this topic and plan to look into it.


I also read about The Age of Extravagance from 1755-1793 the time era was called this because of the extreme use of high end beauty products from the wealthy, and woman bathing in baths of straw berries and milk. Didn't exactly say what it did for them...but seems interesting. You would probably best remember the time with powdered wigs the woman and gentle men would wear. These hairstyles were outrageously unneeded and very silly.    


Through the Victorian Age most women held their hair up with dressed hats, then the 20's hit the era showed more short bob haircuts through the time. While the 30's went for the platinum blonde sleek look through here and the 40's a lot of the styles were just copying whatever was on the movie screen or magazines.
.
The 50's and 60's could be remembered by their huge hair to the strait, sleek hippie styles.

This book was made back in the 1900's so it stops in the 70's and 80's then gives a peek to what they imagined our generation would dress like apparently we're a little behind from there expectations I feel their thoughts on our fashion now a days was very off though.
