It’s said that the history of cosmetology dates back as long as human history does; that cosmetology was born when the first human being glanced in a body of water and saw his or her reflection. Historians have traced some of the earliest beauty treatments back to the Egyptians, when woman used minerals to dye their cheeks and eyes.
