Hello everyone! It’s been SUCH a long time since I’ve written about a topic that gets the side-eye from me. Although I find things to side-eye almost daily, not all of them make it to the blog. This story, however, written on June 19 2012 by Kenyada Jones at The Examiner makes the cut.
Different states usually have their own rules for obtaining a braiding or cosmetology license. In Tennessee, cosmetologists are required to complete 1500 hours of practice and theory at a school of cosmetology. To get a braiding license (also called a Natural Hair Stylist license), you must complete 300 hours of practice and theory at a school of cosmetology.
