In addition, the professional stylists would commit themselves to “work with responsibility, probity and decorum of the profession”.

Thus, if a member is negligent, the College could sanction him with a ban to work for up to five years.

“Many people have lost their nails or their hair because of malpractice,” said the legislator.

According to the initiative, the College would have a group of professionals in styling dedicated to oversee establishments and distributors of the products.
