If you're going specifically to see *her* topless it's not like you care about appearances, anyway.

I can only think of one or two women at my barbershop that would be worth getting a topless haircut from. The rest . . . yeaugghh.

She added that Hall later told her she was soliciting sex with men in the business and said she discovered this after a "strange man" visited and she found used condoms in the trash. She said Hall confessed to accepting payment for sex and added that she also did "house calls."

Impossible! Never would have guessed it.

All that does is make me feel sorry for, and slightly disgusted by, the topless women who have to keep brushing bits of hair off their tits all day long.

Forget the girl FTA, now they are what I'm talking about.  Oh and while I'm there, I need a shave around my other head.

I used to get my hair "styled", and the gal would rub her low cut blouse boobs in my face as she washed my hair. Couldn't have been doing it on purpose right?
She was good looking.

Portland, Oregon used to have "Shear Fantasies", or some other equally obvious moniker. I always wanted to get a haircut there. Regret over missing the experience far outweighs my possible regret over the bad haircut

As someone who cuts hair on a regular basis, those tiny hairs everywhere are annoying as hell. Hair splinters are a thing, as well.

There's a place in Austin called Sexy Scissors that has the barbers wearing bikinis and you can drink a beer with it.

/that beer would just get hair in it, though

Barbers and hair stylists can spread some pretty nasty diseases / infestations if they are not trained to spot them or do not properly sanitize their equipment. It is a legitimate public health concern, and is no more ridiculous than requiring a license to run a restaurant.

Your logic is not welcome here. You're supposed to be outraged that the government would ever dare to oppress its people by forcing them to get a license for anything, ever, not point out that there's a damned good reason for hairstylists/barbers to be licensed.

Actually it is significantly more ridiculous.  Also, as far as I am aware there is no state that requires a license (beyond a basic business license) or any sort of formal training to run a restaurant.  And your if your justification were the real reason, why is "safety" such a tiny part of the required training?

90% of licensing laws are prima facie cronyism.  It is purely a matter of existing businesses having the state erect very expensive and unnecessary barriers to entry to their field.

Except when you don't meet safety standards, you could be shut down.  And there are products and services provided that is a little more extensive than a haircut.  As per article, she was busted for performing permanent makeup without proper license.  I wouldn't want some untrained nut permanent doing anything to my body.

MI health departments do hold food safety classes, which if a restaurant fails an inspection can pay for their employees to take in order to stay open.  I experienced this at the nastiest restaurant I ever worked at.

LoneWolf343: Yeah, like "therapists!"


You realize that that term by itself is largely unregulated, right?  If you want to use an actual professional title, then you have to have earned it, but there are dozens of fields that call themselves types of "therapists" with no licensing or training.

But surely you are referring to the specific types whose state licensing requirements are redundant because they already have professional associations which serve the same purpose, and in many states are just paperwork to verify such credentials.

lack of warmth: Except when you don't meet safety standards, you could be shut down.


So you think that contradicts, rather than reinforces my statement?

And there are products and services provided that is a little more extensive than a haircut.  As per article, she was busted for performing permanent makeup without proper license.I wouldn't want some untrained nut permanent doing anything to my body.

Me either, so I wouldn't.  (I mean, beyond the fact that I wouldn't want anything permanent done to my body).  And although I personally don't require 1000 hours of makeup training for someone to take some clippers to my hair, my state does.

MI health departments do hold food safety classes, which if a restaurant fails an inspection can pay for their employees to take in order to stay open.  I experienced this at the nastiest restaurant I ever worked at.

And those workers didn't need those classes before starting there?  Are you saying that every bus boy at every restaurant should need a license?

The classes had nothing to do with licenses for employees, the classes were making sure the employees were trained properly since the owner/employer didn't properly train his people.  I am not sure if the owner was required to take classes, but they are expected to know the rules and train their employees accordingly.  It may be beneficial for an employer to send a new employee through the class if it is going to be a higher priced establishment, which the nastiest place I worked at was a nice looking restaurant as long as you don't take a look in the kitchen.

Maybe not a "license," but government oversight through health department inspections with a certificate that must be displayed openly once such inspection is passed. Interestingly, in my state, the barber license and restaurant cert is printed on the same paper. Each year, the city I work for does a "Taste of ______." We in the fire department participate, and the state health department has to come in and inspect our kitchen and issue a temporary cert.

The fact that it doesn't even occur to you that barbers should be regulated shows the vast improvement regulation has made on the industry. I'm okay with the fact that my $12 haircut doesn't come with ringworm, and I'm pretty sure my barber is okay with the licensing system.

I'm OK with the fact that it doesn't in place where no license is required, either.  In all the time the place in TFA was operating, what negative things happened?

and I'm pretty sure my barber is okay with the licensing system.

Used to work with a guy who went to an 'Exotic cuts'.  They really couldn't cut hair well & he kept going back frequently.  He wound up with some really bad hair cuts with very little hair left.
