Hair Braiders In New Jersey Are At Constant Risk Of Losing Their Jobs (HBO) 5
Hair braiders in many states across the country are at constant risk of massive fines and losing their jobs.The primary reason: state cosmetology boards. Over the past several decades, these boards have lobbied to require licensing for braiding services, despite offering little training in the discipline or justifying why a non-invasive, non-chemical method needs to be so heavily regulated. Now hair braiders and politicians are fighting back against policies they claim disproportionately affect immigrant women of color. VNT goes to one of the states at the center of the debate: New Jersey.

They want to control everything they can't tax. Pathetic

When I went to cosmetology school it cost me $10, 000. 😭😭 And after working as a hair stylists for 2 yrs, I realized that I absolutely hated it! Such a waste of money. Also, people have a misconception that it's really easy to pass the course. But, about 60% of people end up dropping out and never making it through the entire program. In the beginning it's all books, tests and learning a lot of medical terminology. It's not easy at all! And the state board exams are even worse!

I think braiders should still 100% be licensed to braid. Do you know how many braid / weave horror stories I’ve heard? All because the braider didn’t know what too tight of a braid was? I think there should be a separate program for those interested in only braiding and it definitely shouldn’t be up to 20K

The reason why the board is so resistant and arrogant is because there are no diversity aspects. They need women, black women. Our hair is unlike any other on this earth.

So I guess there would need to be a license or certification for braiding. Im not opposed to that, another way for women like the ones in this video to make BREAD & put other braiders in position to be their own boss. If they could find out a way to run it themselves why not.

There has to be something different that can be done for those who are not using chemicals or methods typically used in a salon. Something where they can still get a license without having to go through full cosmetology school. Most, if not all, hair braiders I know learned outside of professional schooling, typically at home using friends and relatives as you learn. I can understand their frustration, why have to go to school to learn something that you won't ever use in practice? If none of the methods taught in cosmetology school actually cover braiding and that's all you'll do, why even bother? I think we waste enough money doing that for regular college

They should have some form of license... Not full cosmetology school...But some form of a short license just like a food handler's license...

this is so strange to us Africans, that something we grew up doing could be treated this way in your country. We normaly learn braiding while playing dress up as little girls. I remember starting with grass, my dolls, my friends..I can understand their frustration with this weird law. But then again, this is the same country that will send you to jail for letting your kids play outside or not having a permit to hang laundry.😩 A business permit should be enough. Let people be.

Update: Braiders are no longer required to go to cosmetology school but do need 40 hours of training in order to gain a new, different license.

I went to hair school. SANITATION IS VERY IMPORTANT. You need to know how to keep from spreading germs and disease. Properly cleaning and disinfecting utensils. Not just sitting them in barbercide without being rinsed off when soiled. Those lecture hours are important. Its not just about braiding hair, its also dealing with your customers health. With if the customer has an allergic reaction? Proper training should be required.

Iam licensed, and have been for over a decade. School is a lot more than chemicals. You learn about hair structure and the science behind it. These women can’t explain to a customer why they have damaged hair and what and how these chemicals and or hair products cause this.This really sounds like my 6 year old son complaining, “mom I don’t want to go to school! I won’t ever use this stuff in real life.” If you want to do anything in life you need an education. And if you decide to work on hair, it’s best to be educated in all areas of hair. So when any issue or situation arises you have the education and know how to fix it.

They should be licensed. It’s more than just braiding hair. If your are not properly sanitizing your combs and brushes that’s a problem that’s how things are spread. Just wiping a comb and putting it in the next persons head is nasty. Also one needs to know the different types of infections when doing someone’s hair. Certain infections shouldn’t be worked on.

i do believe braiding shouldnt have to follow the cosmetology laws, but braids that are too tight CAN cause damage to the scalp. hair braiding should be in a category on its own !
