The Massachusetts state legislature recently voted against a bill proposed by Governor William Weld that would have abolished regulations for 14 professions, including barbering and cosmetology.

In the bill, Governor Weld states: “After a review by the executive office of consumer affairs and the division of registration, we have concluded that the current system of licensing and regulation of these professions is unnecessary.”

The bill never even made it out of the regulations committee of the state senate, says Lianne Koziol, owner of. The little Nail Shoppe of Rehoboth in Rehoboth, Mass., and an active member of the Massachusetts Cosmetology Association. A public hearing on the bill was packed by concerned members of the professions named in the bill. Koziol herself showed up with a TV camera crew. The bill was also rejected by the state house of representatives.
