TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - A lot of area cosmetologists are upset about a bill that could cut regulations for barber shops.
House Bill 344 would remove barbers from being regulated by the state board even though some put chemicals in hair and give perms. That's not sitting well with local salons who have to be inspected by the board every so often to make sure it's safe for customers.
"I think it would be a mistake," Tera Lane, a Tuscaloosa salon owner said.
Tera Lane owns a busy salon in Tuscaloosa's Midtown Village. She feels the board inspections show you are qualified to do your job.
