Hot off the Presses

This month, the season's hottest look book, NCA/Studio Collection for Spring/Summer, is in the hands of the 25,000-plus members of the National Cosmetology Association (NCA). The book is part of the association's ongoing commitment to provide creative education and inspiration to all its members, and it features the latest looks in runway fashion, accessories and designs for hair, nails and makeup. "This exclusive look book is designed to bring all the excitement of the international fashion and beauty scene directly into NCA members' salons," says NCA president Josephine Zeppieri.

Accompanying the look book is a step-by-step technical book that features major fashion trends to help professionals bring new styles and colors to their clients. In addition, there's an oversized style selector that shows salon professionals how to create the looks as well as the inspiration behind them.
