New Jersey Hair Braiders Bill A3754 is Conditionally Vetoed

New Jerseys hair braiding shops have ridiculous obstacles ahead. Governor Phillip Murphy has conditionally vetoed these women out of a salon.

The Bill A3754 will widen the Wealth Gap and displace the hair braiders by causing the hair braiding shops to CLOSE down.

In his proposal to the legislature, whom might I add PASSED the bill in the Senate and the House of Representatives.

He wants to amend the bill immediately to allow the Cosmetology Board regime to hand out fines and imprisonment of these women for hair braiding.

Here are some of his ridiculous views:

  1. Close down your hair braiding business for 40 hours if you have practical skills in hair braiding.
  2. Enroll in a Beauty Culture School for 50 hours if you have not practical experience in hair braiding.
  3. Can not re-open or open until you have three (3) years of specialty licensing experience in hair braiding. 
  4. Offering no godfathering provisions for current hair braiding salon owners.

And, this is why I’m upset!

5. He offers:

NO reciprocity for future hair braiders transferring or relocating to the state of New Jersey. 

 NO schools or established hair braiding salons/shops offering hair braiding courses.

Causing the hair braiding school owners to apply to the cosmetology boards instructors licensing, surety bonds and insurance requirements.

There is something that can be done about this bill.

We ALL can participate in contacting the Governor at  Governor Phil Murphy

Today and ask him to sign the hair braiding bill (A-3754/S-2510).
