Posted in 30 Hour Minnesota Hair Braiding Registration License

Minnesota Hair Braider Registration gets $0 and the Minnesota Board of Cosmetology Advanced Practice Esthetican get $2 millions for “needle” usage (UNEXCEPTABLE)

Minnesota Hair Braiding Registration License is the key to a Natural Hair Braider Board.

I want to explain more on how the Minnesota Hair Braider Registration Licensees “simple hair devices” are being manipulated into being in the Board of Cosmetology favor through legal cases brought on by the Institute for Justice.

Why should we care? Because it Black Women #AmeicanDOS who bare the bottom of the barrel to healthcare and HIV and HPV infections. However most don’t know how they contracted the virus.

I’m here in your face telling you while white women protect them selves you are the cost.Minnesota Hair Braiding Registration License

Minnesota Advance Practice Deceptions
A. In consequence, Judge Isabell Gomez’s Court Order, Section  III. Agreed Order, paragraph 8., letter B., and page 15.

Gives the Board the authority to make rules  and change the definition at will for “Simple Braiding Devices” it reads:

“Hair Braiding, Simple Braiding Devices, Hair Braiding Services, and Hair Braiding are defined are to be defined in Minn. R 2642.100 (which was later repealed and renumbered to Minn.R 2105) and Hair Braiding, Hair Braiding Services and Hair Braiders are to be construed as exempt from Minn. R 2100(2003), 2646(2003) and 2644(2003).

 

This gives the Board the authority to overwriting the definitions and rules for Hair Braiding, Simple Braiding Devices, and Hair Braiding Services.

But grants exemptions ONLY to Hair Braiding, Hair Braiding Services, and Hair Braiders.

Therefore, allowing the Boards total control over Simple Braiding Devices which includes the ‘needle’.

Unfortunately, this is how the Board can get back into the Health Practices Cataorgy and ask the goverment for more funding in approations through legislation for the health and welfare of the public.
B. The Revisors Rules docket RD4342 denied by Judge Eric Lipman but later approved by Judge Tammy Pust allows AP Estheticians to use Simple Hair Braiding Devices definition separate to create the medical health, safety and sanitation for the welfare of the public claims needed to support the NEW licensing of estheticians.
The Board ask for rulmaking authority over 155A.21 to 155A.36 this mistake includes 155A.28 for Hair Braiders Registration.
I beleive it’s valid enough for this procedural mistake to go back before an adminstrative judge.
In the Matter of the Board of Cosmetologist Examiners’ Proposed Permanent Rules Governing Advanced Practice Estheticians; Minnesota Rules Chapters 2105 and 2110 Section II. Rulemaking Authority.
 
8.  The Board also relies upon its general rulemaking authority under Minn. Stat. § 155A.26, which provides: The Board may develop and adopt rules according to chapter 14 that the Board considers necessary to carry out sections 155A.21 to 155A.36. 
9. With respect to regulating salons, the Board also relies on Minn. Stat. § 155A.29, subd. 2. This statute provides that “the conditions and process by which a salon is licensed shall be established by the Board by rule.” Additionally, Minn. Stat. § 155A.29, subd. 3, provides that “minimum infection control standards for the operation of a salon shall be established by rule.”  https://mn.gov/oah/assets/9013-33230-board-cosmetologest-examiners-rules-report_tcm19-327496.pdf
C. In addition to, creating the definition and rules for Sharps the Board has the athourity over simple braiding device the needle.

3.10 Subp. 11h. Sharps. “Sharps” means any object, sterile or contaminated, that may 

3.11 purposefully or accidentally cut or penetrate the skin or mucosa including presterilized 
3.12 single-use lancets, dermal blades, and razor blades. 
3.13 Subp. 11i. Sharps container. “Sharps container” means a closed, puncture-resistant,
 3.14 leak-proof container, labeled with the international biohazard symbol, that is used for 
3.15 handling, storage, transportation, and disposal of sharps. 
 
 
D. Judge Isabel Gomez’s ruling is being construded as Simple Braiding Devices are separate from Unregulated Services 10a to 10c and are numbered as 11g, 11i and now11j.
As a result, the Board can regulate the simple braiding devices that Hair Braiders use in their services.

3.16 Subp. 11i 11j. Simple braiding devices. “Simple braiding devices” include clips, 

3.17 combs, curlers, curling irons, hairpins, rollers, scissors, needles, and thread. 
 4.1 Subp. 13. Unregulated service. “Unregulated service” means those servicesnot 
4.2 defined as the practice of cosmetology under Minnesota Statutes, section 155A.23, 
4.3 subdivision 3, and that are exempt from regulation by the board. Unregulated services are 
4.4 ear piercing; body art; body painting; henna tattoos and permanent tattoos; eyebrow 
4.5 embroidery; eyebrow microblading; permanent hair removal; permanent makeup; tanning
 4.6 by UV radiation and spray tanning units; injectables; services for theatrical, television, film,
 4.7 fashion, photography, or media productions or media appearances; mortuary services; 
4.8 massage; body wraps and lymphatic drainage when performed by a massage therapist; the 
4.9 practice of medicine as defined in Minnesota Statutes, section 147.081, subdivision 3; and 
4.10 hair braiding, hair braiding services, and hair braiders, as defined in subparts 10a to 10c; 
4.11 and threading as defined in Minnesota Statutes,section 155A.23,subdivision 13. Ordinances 
4.12 by local units of government that prohibit hair braiding, hair braiding services, or hair 4.13 braiders, as defined in subparts 10a to 10c, or regulate any matter relating to licensing, 
4.14 testing, or training of hair braiding, hair braiding services, or hair braiders are preempted 4.15 by this part.

Natural Hair Braiding License 💉Needle-Stick Act OSHA Rules🦠

💉💉Sharps Injury Log🦠

In addition to, the 1904 Recordkeeping Requirements, all percuta- neous injuries from contaminated sharps are also recorded in a Sharps Injury Log.

All incidences must include at least:
date of the injury, the type, and brand of the device involved (syringe, suture needle) department or work area where the incident occurred an explanation of how the incident occurred.

This log is reviewed as part of the annual program evaluation and maintained for at least five years following the end of the calendar year covered.

If a copy is requested by anyone, it must have any personal identifiers removed from the report.

As you can see, the OSHA Sharps Log does not as for the employees/independent contractors or clients name or information, so this is where the necessary modifications can be places.

Thanks for your attention.

Burning Braids as a Natural Hair Braider is Dangerous!

Burning Braids can be dangerous
Yes burning plastic is harmful. You should wear a safety mask while burning braids.

Braid Lighter Safety Demo at The MN Capital

After reading the I’m wondering why did Moran evaluate the hours in Lousiana at 500 hours when Tennessee has just reduced the required hours from 300 to 16 hours?

“It’s not like Louisiana that requires 500 hours, but we want to make sure that we are not creating mandates that are getting in the way of Black women being business owners,” said Moran.

 “It’s just a healthy thing to do to wash a comb before you use it on another person’s head or take note of a scalp issue. But that’s more of an educational piece that needs to take place,” she added. “There are ways to work with the [MN] Department of Health to get those basic type of safety criteria in place.”

Is Moran looking to increase the hours from 30 to possibly nearer to 500? And what will be the requirements through the Minnesota Dept. of Health?

We know that plastic particles are emitted in hair braiding salons.

We know needles are use and NEVER cleaned for sew-in weaves, dred repaires and styling.

We know that burning boiling hot tea pots and cups of water being used to style braids.

Natural Hair Braiders 💕

As a Natural Hair Braider dealing with the public can be stressful without the proper customer service training.

Natural Hair Care requires the right temperament when working with clients and some the the personal issues a client may have.

Natural Hair Care can be a bridge to mental health, sex trafficking, domestic violence awareness and homelessness.

Please take the time to educate yourself for your business.
