Becoming a licensed hairstylist may soon be a much easier prospect in Texas, if the state Legislature has its way.
As The Texas Tribune reports, three new bills would make the process of obtaining a cosmetology license in the Lone Star State much less arduous.
One proposal would reduce the licensing requirement to get a cosmetology license from 1,500 hours to 1,000. Another would repeal a requirement that says an individual must hold a cosmetology or barber student permit to shampoo. And a third measure would remove eyebrow threading from the list of cosmetology services for which a license is required.
