Oregon's 2015 Legislative Session began Feb. 2, and the Legislature is considering a number of bills that could have an impact on the cosmetology profession in Oregon. These include:
HB 2642, which would create a Board of Certified Laser Estheticians within the structure of the Health Licensing Office;
HB 2587, which would add natural nail care as a field of practice within the Board of Cosmetology's oversight and regulation; and
SB 699, which would exempt a person from certification requirements if he or she was styling hair for the sole purpose of preparing someone for a professional photograph or a theatrical performance.
