State Senator Bill Beagle (R-Tipp City) announced the passage of  legislation today that would provide new opportunities for cosmetologists to open their own salons and make it easier for students to enter into the profession following the completion of necessary coursework.

Senate Bill 213, co-sponsored by Senator Beagle, eliminates the requirement that salons have one employee on staff at all times with a manager's license and instead requires new students to complete a six-month apprenticeship before working without supervision.

"When government says you need to be licensed to shampoo hair, it is evident that industry is being suffocated by over regulation," said Beagle. "This legislation takes a common sense approach in reducing requirements placed on cosmetology students and salon owners while maintaining high standards of safety for consumers."

Salon owners believe that the 1,500-hour licensure requirement is unnecessary and only adds to the amount of debt incurred by cosmetology school graduates. The elimination of the manager's license requirement will be offset by the increased training and experience students receive during the apprenticeship.
