This new edition of Lorraine Nordmann's "Beauty Basics" has been fully revised to match the updated national occupational standards for beauty therapy at level 1. Each chapter covers all the mandatory and optional units of the course with a new Science chapter and two new units to reflect the new requirements and the growing importance of this level 1 course. Lorraine Nordmann is at the forefront of beauty therapy education and well respected in the industry. She was involved in the 2010 standards consultations and has extensive knowledge of teaching beauty therapy providing confidence the text will meet the needs of both lecturers and students alike. Along with this, the text is the only level 1 guide to beauty therapy endorsed by both Habia and City & Guilds. As with the previous edition, this text has a friendly and accessible writing style, a full colour art programme and step-by-step photo sequences to highlight key techniques. A new Industry Role Model' feature brings the salon to life and the comprehensive Tip Boxes, Health and Safety Boxes and activities make learning interactive and fun!
