Reviews - What do customers think about Haircutting for Dummies?

Excellent  Apr 23, 2008
I found this book to be the perfect review having been out of the business for sometime now. But it's actually an excellent self learning tool for anyone wanting to know how to cut hair with or without previous experience.
 
Where's the book for really stupid people??  Oct 27, 2007
There aren't enough pictures and the author writes in hard to understand language. I need a book that's written in easier language with tons more pictures. I would not order this book again.
 
Excellent  Sep 4, 2007
My stepdaughter has been cutting my hair for years, and mostly does a good job. I got this book for her, and the last haircut I got was the best she's ever done. Lots of stuff about cutting women's hair in here, too.
 
not a good introduction to haircutting  Nov 21, 2006
I usually like the Dummies books (although I hate their name) because they explain the most basic information. This book seems to be adapted from a hairstylist's textbook and assumes a lot of background knowledge. The directions keep commenting on my needs as a professional, which I have no desire to become. And there are not nearly enough pictures for a topic so visual a topic as haircutting. I will be shopping for other books that are more geared towards the home haircutter.
 
a bad haircut and here you are...   Oct 5, 2006
What is it about a bad haircut ~ I mean a truly, truly BAD haircut, so bad my husband didn't even recognize me when I walked out of the salon ~ that drives people to "Haircutting for Dummies"? I know I'm not the only one who has been in this DIRE situation. This is a good guide, a little confusing in places, but that confusion might be me, but overall a very helpful guide. If only this book could grow out bad haircuts... at least it can help fix them.
