Comments about From Good to Great Hair:
I was impressed by the integrity of Booktopia as the first book came apart at the binding in the back of the book. I got in touch with Booktopia who without any delay sent me a new copy of the book! The second book I have had no issues with the binding at all!
I shop with Booktopia often as they have a good range of books at good prices & even if something is not completely to your satisfaction they will make it right! Thank you to all who work at Booktopia you do a great Job!!!
Vetica, Robert. Good to Great Hair: Celebrity Hairstyling Techniques Made Simple. Fair Winds: Quayside. 2009. 272p. photogs. ISBN 978-1-59233-357-8. pap. $24.99. PERSONAL GROOMINGMarie Claire Hair and "Good to Great Hair" both provide innovative hair designs and insights from top stylists in beautifully designed texts. Of the two, Vetica's book is more accessible and truly delivers clear, step-by-step instructions. Vetica has more than 30 years of experience, including a roster of celebrity beauty and fashion icons as clients. While a bit heavy on autobiography, his book includes makeovers for women of various ages and hair types and translates high glamour and special-event hairstyles for nonprofessionals. Though it includes quick, general tips about hair care and style, Milgram's""book""seems more appropriate for professionals and is only recommended for special collections or for large public libraries where similar titles circulate widely. "Good to Great", on the other hand, is suitable for a general audience owing to its celebrity appeal and more practical approach. --"Library Journal, Feb 15, 2009"
