Georgia Bill Removes Licensing Requirements for Some

In early May, Governor Brian Kemp signed into law Senate Bill 354 (SB 354), exempting those who perform only shampooing and blow-dry styling services from licensing requirements.

SB 354 defines blow-dry styling as the practice of only shampooing, conditioning, drying, arranging, curling, straightening, or styling the hair using only mechanical devices and finishing the hair with hairsprays, balms, oils, and serums. Note: Mechanical devices do not include flat irons or curling irons.

A person performing blow-dry styling services may use and style hair extensions, hair pieces, and wigs. They cannot cut the hair or apply dyes, bleach, reactive chemicals, keratin treatments, or perform other services intended to color or alter the hair structure.
