Right now in Texas, eight eyebrow threaders are suing the state over a law requiring them to go to cosmetology school and become licensed to practice their trade.
While that might not seem like an absurd request, the threaders argue that they shouldn't need to go; some having worked as threaders for decades. Plus, the course coststhousands of dollars.
On the flip side, "unlicensed esthetician" isn't exactly the kind of phrase that inspires confidence. If an experienced threader were able to have a business without a license, then so could someone who has no experience. And although state law doesn't mention threading specifically, it basically says that if you're getting paid to beautify, you need a license.
What do you think? Do these threaders have a case?
