  • Pennsylvania Beauty Salon and Spa Licenses and Permits

    From a licensing standpoint, Pennsylvania is as moderated and even-keeled as its founders. Although the Commonwealth regulates a number of industries, it doesn't go as far as many states. Even better, it keeps its forms and processes relatively simple and clear. Businesses in what was once known as America's Breadbasket won't find their hands tied when trying to establish themselves.

    In Pennsylvania, nails, Hair, Make-Up and Massages all require hands-on treatment from beauticians, estheticians, cosmetologists, barbers, hairstylists and massage therapists. Because these licensed professionals have people’s health and well-being in their hands – and can do real damage if they make mistakes – states usually license their practice. In many cases, local agencies add additional license and permitting requirements too.
