A long-awaited textbook on the subject of permanent cosmetics - Permanent Cosmetics - The Foundation of Fundamental Applications, by Marjorie Grimm, CPCP, past president of the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP) is now available for purchase and is due to ship in September. The culmination of this collaborative effort represents the quest to present long sought after facts, while dispelling many myths that have affected the permanent cosmetic industry for decades.
Grimm began the research for the book in 2005 in collaboration with the SPCP and industry experts. Kate Ciampi, RN, CPCP, David Vidra, LPN, an OSHA Outreach instructor; Elizabeth Finch, CPCP, a bench chemist and Liza Sims, CPCP, an esthetician, were called upon for subject-related factual information in their perspective areas of expertise. In addition to the support and input of industry experts, Marjorie also solicited and received permission to use critical medical and esthetics related data from a selection of cooperative sources. The result of such a broad compilation of research is a comprehensive textbook of information that will be used to affirm existing methodologies and set new standards of practice for the permanent cosmetics industry.
The book is written nonspecific to any device or product, ensuring its objective that the information will be applicable to all, regardless of preferences in this regard, their tenure or interest in the industry. Color photographs are used throughout the textbook, citing unique examples of permanent cosmetic applications that were previously only spoken of in past presentations. In addition to pictorial examples, technical concepts are provided from many perspectives.
The book is written as a resource for the technician, trainer, and student; offering guidelines for new concepts and applications of permanent cosmetics and providing practical and relevant information for all who are associated with the industry.
Permanent Cosmetics-The Foundation of Fundamental Applications is a refreshing infusion of information written for an industry and public eager for facts.
