This bill amends section 28 of the "Cosmetology and Hairstyling Act of 1984," P.L.1984, c.205 (C.45:5B-28), to provide that no provision of that statute will prohibit persons possessing a license to render barbering services in another state or foreign country, which services are included within the definition of barbering as set forth in section 3 of P.L.1984, c.205 (C.45:5B-3), from practicing as a barber upon first arrival in this State and while awaiting the issuance of a license as a barber in this State. Persons possessing a barbering license in another state or foreign country that render barbering services in this State while awaiting issuance of a license to practice in this State, pursuant to the provisions of the bill, will not be in violation of section 14 of P.L.1995, c.82 (C.45:5B-12.1) or any other provision of P.L.1984, c.205 (C.45:5B-1 et seq.), or any supplement thereto, that prohibit the practice of barbering without a license, provided that a person possessing a barbering license in another state or foreign country has made a good faith effort to obtain a license in this State pursuant to the provisions of section 28 of P.L.1984, c.205 (C.45:5B-28). The bill also requires the New Jersey State Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling to establish and maintain a program to enhance public awareness of the provisions of section 28 of P.L.1984, c.205 (C.45:5B-28). The public awareness program must include, but not be limited to, information concerning the procedures, application, and fees necessary for persons licensed to practice cosmetology and hairstyling in other another state or foreign country to obtain a license under P.L.1984, c.205 (C.45:5B-1 et seq.). The board must make any resources developed for purposes of the public awareness program available in English and Spanish, and any other language that the board determines is the first language of a significant number of persons entering the State to practice as a cosmetologist-hairstylist, beautician, barber, manicurist or skin care specialist.
