In my part of the world, there’s a critical shortage of qualified stylists. So the state government, in its wisdom, has come up with a stunning solution, which, according to its detractors, will dumb things down so that anybody with a pulse can become a hairdresser!
Under the proposed new law, hair stylists will be exempt from registration and it will no longer be classified as a trade. Not surprisingly, hair salons are up in arms about the changes. In this story I clipped from my morning paper this week, they’re talking about a class action against the new bill, and, claims one, “You’re talking about professionals who have to mix chemicals and put it on people’s scalps.”
