Nail Expert Profile: Doug Schoon
Doug Schoon is a leading international expert in the nail and beauty industry, Doug has a masters degree in chemistry and is well know for his regulatory and technical work and has been instrumental in developing the beauty industry for over 35 years.
I first discovered Doug when my CND Educator recommended his book Nail Structure and Product Chemistry for further reading. As you May have guessed I’m a bit of a nail geek so of course I wanted to know more. Not only is Doug a brilliant resource for any technical support he’s also a lovely approachable guy and has helped me so much by replying to my questions or comments with insight, kindness and understanding. It’s great that he knows I’m not a scientist and will explain complicated technicalities in a way I can understand.
Doug has a Facebook page “Doug Schoons Brain”, website “Schoonscientific” and a web series “facetofacewithdougschoon” which are all fantastic resources if you want to learn more about the how’s and whys, they are a great place to start if you have a question or simply want to keep up with the latest developments in the nail industry. Links to these are included below.
As well as the previously mentioned book Nail Structure and Product Chemistry, the Face to Face with Doug Schoon web series has also been published in three volumes (so far). Each book is very different and crammed with essential information that all nail techs should understand in order to work properly and safely. These books are available world-wide on Amazon, iTunes, Kobo and Nook as either a printed or e-book. Or order them from your local bookstore and save on shipping.
Doug has worked with CND but all of his advice is non brand specific, so don’t be put off if CND isn’t your thing. I truly believe that in the nail industry Doug is the voice of reason and a must follow for anyone wanting to be well informed and up to date. I hope you’ll enjoy learning more from him.
