Make-over consultants and make-up artists at theaters do not need this license.
New regulations are in place to protect workers. Read "Nail Salons-Important Information" and "Nail Salon Safety - What You Need To Know" for more information. Both are linked under "Additional Resources." Businesses that do not follow these laws will be punished.
