Chemical Texture Services: Cosmetology Quiz! - Quiz

What do you know about chemical texture services? Cosmetologists are trained and licensed to perform chemical texturing services to hair, such as permanent waving, called perming and chemical straightening. Permanent waving entails softening the hair with chemicals to take the shape of whatever it is wound, and permanent wave rods curl the hair. Take this quiz and get ready to pass hair and square.
