The current licensing laws requires 30-1500-hours of educational training with a test for new hair braiders, barbers, cosmetologists, estheticians, eyelash technicians. Existing technicians were able to be “licensed” by only testing out of the educational requirements.
Any salon/shop that offered these services on the public must be licensed like any other salon/shop.
But a new twist is at play.
The Bill HF2591 removes any technician offering this service anywhere as unlicensed as a barber, cosmetologist or esthetician.
This NEW law is an unbalanced approach without proper educational training and test requirement and a necessary licensing component.
This is in IGNORANCE of the inherent dangers posed to health, safety, and infection control concerns for all clients who seek these services.
HF 2591 WOULD COMPLETELY REPEAL Cosmetology and Barbers EXISTING LAW AND DEREGULATE IT!
