|Subject:||Re-Introduction: Mobile Barbershop Legislation Package - Barber and Cosmetology Licenses|
|In the near future, I plan to re-introduce a legislative package (former HB’s 2086 and 2085 of 2013-14 session) that will allow a barber or cosmetologist to practice in a mobile setting.
Many constituents in my area - and I suspect many other areas around the state - are unable to travel to a salon or barber shop. This legislation would allow service to occur within a home, a senior center, a local recreational center, etc.
A licensed salon or barber shop or individual cosmetologist or barber would be allowed to utilize and operate a mobile salon/barbershop, which allows for small businesses to thrive and for those who cannot get to a physical, traditional shop to be served as well.
It would also allow for “make-over” parties or planned gatherings to include this type of service. Allowing a barber or cosmetologist to operate through a mobile setting as well as a traditional setting provides an opportunity for expansion of their business and customer base. In addition, this legislation will ensure sanitation and the maintenance of a traditional cosmetology salon or barber shop as well.
The first bill deals with Mobile Barbershops; it amends the Barber's License Law (Act of June 19, 1931 (P.L. 589, No. 202)).
The second bill deals with Mobile Salons; it amends the Cosmetology law (Act of May 3, 1933 (P.L. 242, No. 86)).
Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation package.
Introduced as HB1191
