ATLANTA – Americans for Prosperity – Georgia (AFP-GA) today thanked Rep. David Jenkins for introducing HB 212, the Niche Beauty Service Opportunity Act. This legislation would reduce the regulatory burden around niche beauty services like blow dry styling, eyebrow threading, and makeup artistry.
AFP-GA Deputy State Director Tony West released the following statement:
“Today in Georgia, beauty services such as make-up application and blow dry styling require a beauty license and thousands of dollars of cosmetology school classes. Those are significant barriers to aspiring beauty entrepreneurs looking to launch their own small business. This commonsense solution would break down that regulatory red tape for Georgia’s talented beauticians.”
The Niche Beauty Service Opportunity Act:
Defines the limited scope of practice for blow dry styling and eyebrow threading;
Creates a distinction between the “big three” beauty licenses and the following niche beauty services: shampooing, blow dry styling, threading, and makeup artistry; and
Exempts those niche beauty services from individual and facility license requirements.
