Tennessee House Votes To End License Requirement To Braid Hair

2. Basically people who are trained and licensed

Provide BETTER protection to people they serve. People may "know" what they are doing, but do they really "know?" They same untrained people can damage other peoples hair because they are not "trained." I have not seen other states following this state. After high school I attended higher education in this state for one year. Then I returned home because I was not "comfortable" there......
