Can anyone from 'off the street' start working behind the chair? Yes and No, let me explain...
Arizona is leading the pack when it comes to deregulation in the Cosmetology industry.
What does this mean?
Can anyone from 'off the street' start working behind the chair? Yes and No, let me explain before you throw your hands up in a fit of rage.
This new development only applies to partial salon services so YES, you can come from off the street and do services right away, like: shampooing, blowouts, formal styling & makeup. that said, NO on anything that has to do with cutting or chemicals.
Salon Owners are fighting to keep their doors open
Salon owners are seeing this as an opportunity to staff and fill available spots in their salons. The hard truth is when no one is beating down your door to work in a commission style salon anymore. We can thank the ever-growing popular demand for booth renting for this one. And, the other people who are coming in to work are unlicensed (very hungry) professionals you are going to be very inclined to at least hear them out and give them a chance to prove themselves.
The other side to this argument is that the world will crumble, and EVERYONE will get Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)! All because this person(s) didn't spend 20,000 dollars and 1,500-2,000 hours in cosmetology school. Let's get real, women ALREADY blow-dry, style, curl & pinup their own hair at home (without training) so why do we have such harsh regulations put on aspiring stylist?
Made possible by
You be the judge of this question, does our State board & Cosmetology schools play a role in making this possible? Possible. What about the strict rules and strong hold regulations put on our industry? Maybe? Are we properly prepared once we graduate school? Do these things play a part in why out industry is losing control on this?
