Industry professionals are dedicated to upholding safety standards to protect consumers and raise perceptions of our profession by supporting the sustained licensing of professionals. Throughout their education, licensed professionals study skin and scalp care, anatomy, biology, chemistry, and science-based infection control. Licensed professionals are trained to utilize chemicals and tools safely to avoid injuries and the spread of infectious diseases.

Beauty professionals complete hundreds of hours of schooling to learn about proper safety and sanitation procedures, graduate from a cosmetology program, and successfully pass a state board exam to become licensed. Unlicensed and untrained people practicing cosmetology put the public at serious safety risks.
