Abstract An epidemiological study was conducted of the risk of spontaneous abortion among cosmetologists using more refined exposure data than the job title alone. The results suggest moderately increased risks of spontaneous abortion among cosmetologists who worked full time and who performed a large number of chemical services. The use of formaldehyde (50000) and working in salons where manicuring and nail sculpturing was performed were also associated with an increased risk of spontaneous abortion. The authors suggest that areas for future study should include those exposed to nail sculpturing; a two fold increased risk of spontaneous abortion was associated with this background. The more than two fold increased risk of spontaneous abortion among cosmetology school students should also be examined further.
