The licensing requires constant education, and testing every other year.

So you are saying people with a license don't spread bacterial infections? That's a joke.

Have you ever gotten a bad haircut from a licensed barber?

Licensing does nothing but grow Big Government and eliminate competition.

The skill set is constantly changing, that is why any good cosmetologist is constantly taking training.
Learning in a salon can be very dangerous, that's why you go to a school to have hands on training with mannequins, then direct supervision working on people.

Would you like someone to be learning on the job on your skin or hair?

Gag me. It's putting on MAKE UP! Billions of women have learned this skill without destroying their skin.

I have take my state boards.

This is not go in and pay for a license. This is 4500 hours of class time, 1500 hours of apprenticeship, and then a state exam consisting of 300 questions, and a practical application exam.
There were 30 questions on diseases of the nails alone.

OK, so it's even more ridiculous than I thought.

Men have been dying in coal mines for centuries! why do we need government regulations now? It was a family tradition for your father to get black lung at 45 until the meddling government inspectors came in and screwed everything up.

What's the matter Frank? Have you been picking up a few extra bucks on the side doing pedicures and bikini waxes and now you need a license?

Hmmm.... comparing coal mining to putting on make up...... hmmmm...... FAIL!

Funny, but even the state board doesn't think that make up artists should be licensed, and were working on changing the laws.
Quote:
Vincent Jimno, executive director of the Cosmetology Board, said his agency was aware of the complaints by Waugh and Robin and was working to change state law to allow them to operate their makeup artistry schools without a full cosmetology instructor’s license.
“The laws, the ways they are drafted, currently don’t allow them ... to have a limited school,” Jimno said. “Bottom line, cosmetology is the application of makeup and the beautifying of skin. They do makeup, and that falls under the board of cosmetology.”
Jimno said portions of the state’s cosmetology law — which were written decades ago — are archaic and that his agency was working to modernize the regulations. But doing so requires a legislative process, which can’t be accomplished until the Legislature is back in session in 2013.
