We encourage you to stay aware of changes in your state that may impact your life as a beauty professional. Lawmakers are presented with everything from proposals to change licensing requirements to limiting tuition aid for cosmetology schools and they need to be educated on the issues by informed representatives of our industry. Currently, most state legislative sessions are adjourned but they will reconvene soon and debate will begin again on laws that will directly influence your work, your ability to earn, and the practice of cosmetology. Consult this state-by-state map for dates and more information:
Also, please visit the sites of the professional beauty organizations that advocate for you. Finally, check back here with MODERN SALON for continuing updates on industry legislation, advocacy and beauty news.
