House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session

From: Representative Michele Brooks
To: All House members
Subject: Salon License Operation
In the near future I will be introducing legislation to allow an owner of a licensed cosmetology salon, who decides to restrict their services to limited license services, to continue operating under the current salon license until its expiration.

Currently, the State Board of Cosmetology regulations (49 Pa. Code, Chapter 7) specify the equipment and supplies required to be maintained in cosmetology salons and limited license salons. If an owner of a cosmetology salon decides to limit their services by offering only limited license services, such as esthetics or nail technology, and no longer maintains all of the equipment and supplies specified for the full cosmetology salon, they are required to obtain a new limited salon license.

My legislation would allow continued operation under the existing cosmetology salon license until its expiration, and only at that point would the owner be required to obtain the applicable limited salon license. If the remaining services offered by a salon are already covered under their current license, I believe this is a reasonable and commonsense amendment to the Cosmetology Law.

Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation to help our small businesses.

Introduced as HB2475
