ISSUE: Should Florida’s cosmetology industry be deregulated.
DISCUSSION: There are almost 100,000 cosmetologists currently licensed and active in Florida, and close to 20,000 salons. Florida’s beauty industry is alive and well, and the continued regulation of this industry is in the best interests of both consumers and cosmetology service providers.
It’s not just about looking good. The men and women of Florida’s beauty industry receive extensive training and adhere to strict sanitation policies to insure the health, safety and welfare of their clients. The regulations and requirements in place ensure that Florida’s cosmetology industry keeps Floridians looking good and feeling good.
POSITION: The Florida Retail Federation does not support deregulation of the cosmetology industry. However, there are always opportunities to streamline and seek greater efficiency in regulation, and we would support such measures.
