Unraveling Unconstitutional Government Regulation in Arizona


InstituteForJustice on Jun 27, 2011

Eyebrow threading is a natural and safe method of hair removal that uses a single strand of cotton thread to remove unwanted hair, most commonly from the eyebrows, with no chemicals, dyes, hot wax or sharp objects. But state bureaucrats have decided that threaders cannot practice their trade without first obtaining an unnecessary and expensive government license. The Arizona Board of Cosmetology is now requiring skilled threaders to obtain an aesthetician license, which requires at least 600 hours of classroom instruction-not one hour of which teaches or tests threading-and that can cost over $10,000. But threaders do not need full-blown cosmetology training.
