💭 Minnesota is Licensing Buildings as Beauticians, Barbers 💈 and Braiders

Hey #SuperNaturals,

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!

eco Hair Braider® Association,LLC. strongly encourages you to join us and speak out in opposition to this legislation today!

Please CALL key lawmakers with this sample message: (contact list follows)

My name is ____________ from __________.

I am opposed to Representative Lucero’s bill, HF 2591–the repeal of cosmetology and barber boards deregulation bill.

This type of service must remain regulated to protect people.

Do not put their health and safety in jeopardy like this!

Untrained and unlicensed people SHOULD NOT be entrusted to use needles, razors and scissors ✂️; or to apply glues and use chemicals on the public!

Absolutely not!

Licensing is a requirement for anyone offering this service.

As a licensed practitioner myself, I am appalled at the consequences for the public if this law is repealed.

My phone number is ________.

Thank you.

Bill HF 2591 would completely deregulate cosmetology and barber services performed by a person( hairstylist, barbers, estheticians, nail technicians and makeup artist.

Its the creation of specialty salons and shops (buildings) licenses offering these barber and cosmetic procedures.

This includes hair salons, barbershops, esthetician spas, nail salons and its managers and masters but also all technicians engaged in this activity anywhere.

It allows the police in the municipal government where your business is located to inspection and fine your businesses.

🗣The 👮‍♀️ POLICE 🚔 ‼️

1. There is no plan for coding or ordinance of these buildings spelled out specifically in this new regulatory agency.

2. There is no fee for the licensing of these cosmetic/barber buildings.

3. Blacks lost most of there real estate and the ventilation requirements may be a hardship for some current land lards and business owners.

🤔 What do you think?

Should buildings have a license and the person performing services NOT?

Should the municipal authorities be in charge of licensing, inspections, and violations of salons and barbershops?

Should Natural Hair Braiding be included in this bill also?

🛑We DEMAND to KNOW MORE ABOUT THE NEW REGULATIONS BEFORE THIS BILL PASSES ‼️
