Happy Juneteenth Pennsylvania’s Hair Braiding License is Going to Court!

Okay, #SuperNaturals

Today’s more that Juneteenth to me most you you know my thoughts on Juneteenth and the ignorance of knowing we were free.

Well today I woke up to GREAT 💯 news. The Hair Braiders are going to court. But this time with an expert patent infringement attorney.

☝🏾I have attached his ( John Shaw of ShawKeller, LLP) press release to this post.

✔️Please read it, share it, and walk in your POWERS on Juneteenth ‼️

PHILADELPHIA—Pennsylvania’s mandatory license for hair braiding still stands even after a commonwealth government study found that the license blocks opportunities and is unnecessary to protecting the public. Gov. Tom Wolf admitted the state should eliminate the license because it blocks hardworking people from, “getting a good job, supporting their families and growing our economy.” Today, 2 years after the Governor’s comments, three Pennsylvania braiders launched a lawsuit to finally unravel the unnecessary and burdensome requirement.

New World Order

Astou Diop, Tanyita Henry and Awa Gaye are experienced in traditional African hair braiding, a natural technique involving no chemicals or heating implements. Each of them learned their skills at an early age, just as generations of women before them learned. Yet Pennsylvania requires 300 hours of unnecessary training and a computerized test before these women can braid for paying customers. John Shaw, of Shaw Keller LLP, filed the suit on behalf of the braiders at the Commonwealth Court in Harrisburg.

“Braiding is so safe that no natural hair braider in Pennsylvania has ever received a health or safety complaint,” said Shaw. “Yet braiders are still required to get hundreds of hours of training, much of it in subjects that have nothing to do with braiding. The Pennsylvania Constitution protects the braiders’ right to earn a living. Right now, they have to stop working to get completely unnecessary training.”

While Pennsylvania mandates 300 hours of training to acquire a license, no cosmetology school offers close to that number of hours of education in braiding. Additionally, Pennsylvania has only licensed two braiders to teach natural hair braiding, with one of these individuals living in New Jersey. This means that in order to comply with the law, natural braiders must take hours of instruction in cosmetology practices that they do not intend to offer.

“My shop is completely focused on natural hair braiding and I only employ natural braiders,” said Astou Diop, the owner and manager of a shop in Philadelphia. “Braiders can’t put their careers on hold to get training that doesn’t improve their skills and that isn’t needed to keep people safe.”

“This is an issue for communities across Pennsylvania including near State College,” said Tanyita Henry who lives in Bellefonte, 9 miles from Penn State’s campus. “There are too few resources for black students and residents outside of Philly. I want to open a salon to meet their hair needs.”

Currently 28 states allow braiders to practice without a license, and legislation to eliminate the braiding license is currently awaiting the Florida governor’s signature. Among them, three states bordering Pennsylvania do not license the practice: Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia. Even among the few states that require a license for braiders, Pennsylvania’s requirements stand out as exceptionally burdensome. Only Louisiana requires more training, 500 hours, and that state’s requirement is also being challenged in court.

Following a June 2018 study by the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs focused on identifying any overly broad or overly burdensome Pennsylvania occupational license, Governor Wolf called for the elimination of the braiding license. Pennsylvania’s Acting Deputy Secretary for Regulatory Programs and Commissioner of Professional and Occupational Affairs also recommended repeal of the license and noted that no natural hair braider in Pennsylvania had ever received a customer-driven complaint relating to health or safety.

Look at blue Ivy’s beautiful natural hair, skin, and yes her FATHER’S features.

What child you know that does not look like it’s legal father?

If Jay-Z was not the father these old hags would love to have Blue Ivy drug on Marvy saying “you are not the father!”

These to women have got to go!

😠They need to be fired!

Here is a small part of the tweets but you can find the full article here.

“In the since-deleted tweet, the writer wrote, “I have a feeling the jay z face genes are about to really hit Blue Ivy, and I feel so sorry for her.” In response, Harper’s digital editor Violet Lucca tweeted, “They haven’t already?” Collins replied, “You’re right. But she’s lucky — if it happens now, she’ll definitely grow out of it. Get the ugly duckling phase done early.” Lucca then added: “Or she’ll get plastic surgery at 16 a la Kylie Jenner, and we’ll all have to pretend that she always looked that way…I can’t allow myself to feel too sorry for the incredibly rich!”

To Blue Ivy you are beautiful just the way you are baby!

Don’t let nobody take that away from you!

💰Riches cannot bring you the beauty that you have within.

#2020 is here! Are you a Weaveologist or Cosmetologist doing sew-in weaves?

Are you a Cosmetologist or Weaveologist?

Weaveologist install front lace weaves, frontals and sew- ins on customers as a professional hair artist.

“Hair braiding” as defined includes more than just cornrows — it also includes “locking, sewing, twisting, weaving, or wrapping” hair and extensions by hand and by only using simple braiding devices.

Those “simple hair devices” include needles under Minnesota Statute 116.76.

These needles are used for installing “scalp hair prostheses” as defined in Minnesota Statutes 62A.28, commonly known as “customized wigs” as included in the Hair Braiding definition, as well as for sew-in weaves.

This is scary as most Black women in braiding salons re-use weaving needles and do not use safety equipment in hair braiding salons and we are the highest rate of HIV, HCV, and HPV contacting in Minnesota.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 385,000 sharps-related injuries occur annually among health care workers in hospitals.

While there is no data for exposure to injuries by the Board of Cosmetology or the MN Health Department, the CDC reports that such simple device injuries pose a 24 percent increased risk with suture needles.

As a licensed cosmetologist and hair braider course provider, I helped form the EcoHair Braiders Association, LLC in 2014 along with five hair braider course providers to provide an online learning natural hair course and learning experience for hair braiders.

Currently, there are 350 registered hair braiders 156 active, 17-course providers, 2 charter schools and four community colleges offering the hair braiding services and curriculum, “Natural Hair Braiding Safety for the Public and Practitioner.”

As hair braiders, individuals and entities, we authorized, reviewed, and approved the adoption of the rules by the Board of Cosmetology into Chapter 154 and 155A and are now asking Minnesota’s legislators to amend HF 140 to include informative safety oversight research and analysis that will create uniformity and allow reciprocation between 24 other states that currently regulate hair braiding and fiscal note for appropriations.

We also request the creation of a Needle-Stick Committee to help reduce exposure to bloodborne pathogens by establishing preventive rules for the safety of the citizens of the state.

We do not want the current hair braiding law repealed, we just want it transferred to another chapter in the Minnesota Statutes to address infection control. In addition to needles, “hair braiders” use glue, cigarette lighters and boiling hot water which could also create health risks. 

We recommend this infection control training be regulated and include three parts: bloodborne pathogen compliance via OSHA and its Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act of 2000; first-aid training from Red Cross; and personal protective equipment training from the Department of Labor and industry to include the use of thimbles and containers. This training could be completed in as few as three hours, but needs to happen annually.

We understand Moran’s desire to remove cumbersome requirements as it relates to the economy, but ultimately see it posing a greater risk for the health of Black women which is our greatest form of wealth.

President Trump Leads White House Roundtable on Governor of Nebraska Regulatory Reform Initiative – Video and Transcript…

Here is what the president had to say about hair braiding in Nebraska.

GOVERNOR RICKETTS:

What you’ve been doing on occupational licensing reform — that’s a big thing we’ve been working on in Nebraska as well.

And just, it impacts so many people’s lives when you do that. So, for example, we have a woman who wanted to open up her own hair-braiding business in her home. But because of the rules and regulations in Nebraska, she would have had to have 2,100 hours of licensing — you know, classrooms to be able to get that license.

THE PRESIDENT:

That’s a long time.

GOVERNOR RICKETTS:

And now maybe I don’t get the whole hair-braiding thing — (laughter) — but nobody’s health or safety is put at risk by bad hair-braiding. And so one of the things we did is we took — you know, got rid of that requirement so she wouldn’t have to have that license so she could open up her own business —

THE PRESIDENT:

Right.

GOVERNOR RICKETTS:

— and be able to help add jobs to the economy. And that’s one of the things that your administration supported. So thank you very much for that. We really appreciate it.

And we’re continuing — I signed an executive order freezing all regulatory rulemaking until the regulations have been reviewed.

The Inter-weaving of Roots By A Natural Hair Stylist

Today, was a different day.

My obsessed with my roots has taken me back ⬅️ to my childhood.

You see 👀 I’m a fourth generation cosmetologist.

My great grandmother 👵🏾, grandma, mother and I all have styled hair.

Having a home 🏠 full of 💥 Powerful Women it’s difficult to let my roots show.

Some how I equated letting go of my touch ups 🙅🏾‍♀️as being disheveled and not appropriate for outside.

But today was different I will start a new 💫 cultivation of Natural Hair Care.

Eliminating the shame and guilt of retouching and walk with my 👸🏾head high because my hair is just fine.

I have three daughters and my roots run deep throughout my👪 family.

I want them to love 💕 themselves naturally.

I’m 👩🏾‍🌾cultivating and pruning these old hair strands for a new BEGINNING!

Natural Hair Braiding, Minnesota vs Zeno and Reciprocity

Death of the Practice and Jail for today’s Natural Hair History Challenge.


Yes, it is me Dee here at 3 on the 3 with some black history.

Ok in 1899 a man by the name of George Zeno was arrested for barbering in Minnesota.
“Defendant was convicted in the municipal court of Minneapolis for violation of Laws 1897, c. 186, being “An act to regulate the practice of barbering,” etc.; and appealed from an order, Holt, J., denying a motion for a new trial. Affirmed.”
The infamous case of Zeno versus the state of Minnesota in 1899.

Zeno a barber cut 2 white men hair and another white man filed a suit against him.

George Zeno was then locked in jail until the judge ruled on his respiratory case.

Then respa rocity was declared in multi-state registrations, permits, and licenses.

All these occupational licensing regulations would need to become interchangeable across States.

No because of this law hair braiders across all state lines will soon be able to apply for licensure on a federal level.

This is why the cosmetology regimes have deregulated the cosmetology boards to allow licensure for her braids.

You think if relaxers and cosmetologist on buying gallons of relaxer anymore that Revlon, Clairol, and any of the other big-name brand manufacturers are happy.

No, when all of the market of 1 billion dollars has been saturated amongst minority groups Asians, Africans, and anybody else that are immigrants to America.

The Asians Supply her, the Africans sew it in or braid it in, the black Americans sew it in or braids it on, the Asians are doing the nails, the Indian’s are doing the threading all these are great people from different countries embarking on economic success in America.

Thank you

Minnesota State .vs. G.Zeno

Natural Hair Braiding, The Head-Wrap, and HEALTH

Okay, today is Day 2, Monday’s HEALTH and it is on Bacteria.
Why is it disrespectful to call a Headwrap a Scarf?

I will ✋ wait and count from one to 30 again.

Okay, let’s get started in 1862 the oppression began to order black slave women to wear scarfs to cover their hair and prevent the spread of LICE.

  1. Lice is a pathogenic bacteria, it is an animal parasite and its found in hair that’s kept unclean.
  2. Lice is a communicable infection that can be spread to the public.
  3. Lice are contagious and must be diagnosed by a doctor, not a hairstylist.
    Legislation which is a law was passed in the South demanding African American women wear scarfs.
    Lice have never been a problem in the African American/Black community in all my 25 years as a hairstylist. Once my grandfather who was a hairstylist lived in the south and was my first teacher told me that a white slave masters wife was jealous of a malatto young lady and believed the young lady DECEIVED her family by passing as white. After that, this law came about. So this now brings me to the headscarf of my Liberian Sisters and how the love of HELPing another tie their scarf as a tradition.
    The bridging of cultures through this natural hair movement has the Headscarf as a FREEDOM marker to hold your head high.
    The stigma of LICE in our hair is an LYE.
    We never had lice!
    Just beautiful LOCS of Jealousy!
