I just signed the following petition addressed to: State of Indiana.
Keep Licensing Procedure for Cosmetology/Barber in Indiana
In a report filed on December 16, 2011, the Regulated Occupations Evaluation Committee made the following recommendation:
"Eliminate the Cosmetology and Barber Board in its entirety including each of the 25 license types (including 5 temporary license types) associated with the Cosmetology and Barber Board."
This would deregulate our industry, meaning that the hard work that professionals completed to become a licensed cosmetologist/barber/nail tech/esthetician was all for naught, allowing untrained, unlicensed individuals to render cosmetology & barber services to consumers.
