Assembly Passes Bill to Deregulate Braiding

I completely support this bill. There are hundreds of other certification/licensing requirements that need to be revised or discarded. They create an artificial barrier to the market with marginal value.

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -A bipartisan bill passed in the Wisconsin Assembly would allow hairstylists to braid natural hair without a barbering or cosmetology license.


This bill is already law in about 30 states in the U.S., according to the Institute for Justice, a nonprofit that advocates for civil liberties.


Rep. Shelia Stubs (D-Madison) said braiding is a cultural practice and you shouldn’t need a license to do it.


“My favorite part is seeing the transformation and making people happy,” Kiara Allen, Kashis Cheveux salon owner said.

    Evers will veto, because liberals never surrender power….no matter how stupid the regulation.

    I think they are discriminating. What about people who have wigs and they need those braided.
    Anyways, how can I trust someone to braid my hair if they don’t have a license?
