Take Action To Prevent Total Deregulation

We need another show of support for for Senate Bill 129 and House Bill 189, which will bring common-sense cosmetology licensing reform to Ohio. Once passed, Senate Bill 129 and House Bill 189 will:

  • Focus on student success, allowing new graduates to enter the beauty industry with less debt.
  • Move towards more accessibly license mobility across state lines.
  • Level the playing field: Public cosmetology students finish program hours at 1,125 and private students are required to take 375 more hours under current Ohio law. 

Common, sensible licensing standards are crucial to sustaining growth for our industry and protecting public safety. SB 129 and HB 189 are strong examples of reasonable legislation.

Support for cosmetology reform will provide greater accessibility to jobs for Ohioans and encourage consistency by joining other states throughout the country with less restrictive regulations for occupational licensing.

Why do we need you to take action?

Opponents of House Bill 189 and Senate Bill 129 are trying to scare legislators by claiming these bills will ruin the cosmetology industry. We need you to call to set the record straight and convince the legislators that the bills are positive for the industry.
