House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: August 10, 2017 10:29 AM
From: Representative Frank A. Farry
To: All House members
Subject: Licensure of Electrologists
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation that will amend the Cosmetology Law (Act 86
of 1933) to provide for the licensure of electrologists.

Electrology is the permanent removal of hair through the use of a sterile needle or solid probe
combined with an electric current.

Currently, the practice of electrology is not specifically addressed in the Cosmetology Law, and
individuals who only practice electrology are not required to be licensed. My legislation would
bring electrology under the regulation of the State Board of Cosmetology. It will add
electrology to the definition of "cosmetology" and also provide for a limited license for
electrologists and electrology salons.

Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation. Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as HB1862
