Welcome to Our World has become an annual tradition on Capitol Hill. Salon professionals from across the country converge on Capitol Hill to share an evening with Members of Congress, professional staff, and those interested in learning about a committed group of individuals representing a dynamic industry.
Help Educate Law Makers on What Our Industry is All About
Industry professionals are dedicated to upholding safety standards raising perceptions of our profession by supporting licensing and regulation. 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 proper safety and sanitation procedures, graduate from a cosmetology program, and pass a state board exam to become licensed. Unlicensed, untrained people practicing cosmetology put the public at serious safety risks. Learn more about how our industry is protecting licensed professionals and consumers at probeauty.org/yoursafetyfirst.
