His mother is a cosmetologist!
Current law requires any employee of a salon that washes a customers hair must be a licences cosmetologist. I got an e-mail from Representative Ted Vick‘s mom the other day:
My name is Jan S. Vick. My son is Rep. Ted Vick. I would like to ask you to please pass Bill H 3803, concerning “unlicensed persons being able to shampoo hair under the supervision of a licensed cosmetologist”.
I have been a hairdresser for the past 24 years. Many of those years, I have hired a “technician” to assist me in this manner. Unfortunately, the person had to be a licensed cosmetologist, just to shampoo hair. It has been very hard to find someone to fill this position.
This would be a great opportunity…to encourage others to go into this field of work.
Thousands of jobs can be created in SC, if this legislation passes, and this poor “tired” hairdresser, would certainly appreciate the help!
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
Jan S. Vick
H. 3803 eliminates this requirement. I can’t believe the SC House passed legislation that actually removes a regulation. As it goes, even a blind hog can find an acorn every once in a while!
