Is there no end to the control and wasted licensing efforts that our governments have put in place? When will the people vote these idiots out of office? Why would anyone (other than a Big Government Nanny State advocate) ever think you need a license to show people how to put make-up on?

And then we wonder why government spending has grown to over 40% of GDP........ pathetic.

Dontcha know? The government is full of experts from almost every profession whose job it is to provide us with licensed professionals
Anyway, more job killing and market distortion from the idiots at central planning.

I dunno, it's clear that women can't be trusted when deciding what to wear, thus it's not unreasonable to assume they can't be left to decide their own makeup.

Uh...it's called a Cosmetology License and nearly every state has them, including some of your most blue-blood of GOP states:

Wow...a State Board of Cosmetology. That is pretty intense. Something like this is not to protect the consumer, but to generate revenues from the state and restrict competition. It's pretty sad.

There is a need for a state board of cosmetology. Some of the procedures that are done in salons, and spas can cause serious, permanent damage to people.

A licensed cosmetologist works with hazardous chemicals, and has to know how to mix and apply them to clients skin, hair, and nails.
They also must know how to spot many types of bacterial, and viral infections, parasitic infestations, and even some diseases.
They must know chemical reactions with various medications, and with different water types.

There are procedures such as chemical, or enzyme peels that can cause serious burns if not properly mixed, and applied. Microdermabrasion which basically sandblasts the face. Laser hair removal, permanent makeup (tattooing) and eyelash extensions which use an adhesive that can blind a client.

I personally would feel safer with there being a standardized test, and licensing to know that the person working on my hair and skin knows what they are doing.

Oh i get it....If big brother didn't make people pay for the privilege of practicing cosmetology, salons would employ individuals that maim their clients.

Thanks.

Uh...that's precisely what was happening before licensing became the norm. Why do you think they decided to create training standards? Just for the heck of it?

It was?
Licensing became the norm, because as per usual government procedure they saw an opportunity to stick their hand into the pockets of individuals to create an illusion of professional standards. And who are the state experts that make up said standards?

If you had a salon would you hire someone who didn't have the neccesary skills to provide proper care for your clients or would you just rely on some state issued piece of paper that said it was so?

Yes. There are salons that get shut down today that hire unlicensed people. These salons have been known to spread bacterial infections from improper sterilization, they have disfigured people with chemical burns or not knowing how to gauge the depth of a tattoo on the face, and they have burned people with the lasers used for hair removal.

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