Lipsology_Historyjilly_history_cashAlthough human faces, hands and eyes have been studied to reveal personal characteristics for centuries, the exciting art of lip print reading has really just begun.

Jilly’s fascination with lip prints began in 1981 with a hobby of collecting prints from friends and family, and even celebrities like Johnny and June Cash.

Jilly developed skills for reading and analyzing lip prints; catalogued her findings, created terminology (such as the “Hug Pucker” and “Cupid’s Bow”) and Lipsology was born!

From 1991 to when Jilly retired in 2019, she enjoyed entertaining for an impressive client list. She developed a Lipsology Certification Program and enjoyed teaching those interested in a career as a Certified Lipsologist trained in the Jilly Eddy Method. She has also developed a program for training Certified Lipsologists to be Certified Lipsology Teachers. Her teachers have a growing number of students across the country and internationally. In 2013, Jilly published her book, Lipsology, The Art and Science of Reading Lip Prints, thus offering all another way to learn, enjoy, and practice Lipsology!
