Should the Esthetics industry be licenced

 

Should the Esthetics Industry be Licensed

This is a hot topic for many estheticians in the community right now.  I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve done my own research and have come to my own personal conclusion.  I don’t wish to start some heated debate (There are some pretty passionate estheticians out there 😉 So I’m going to post some resources you can take a look at and make your own decisions. Resources are being posted in the order that I find them and their place on the list has no particular importance.
