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.
