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.

Nail Salon OUTRAGE!

In Omaha, a beauty salon a Facebook post on racist practices dealing with the Asian community and the Coronavirus was posted.

💆Lash Goddess on 115th and Blondo is a  black woman-owned spa that offers lash and spa services. The owner Mia Will shared a Facebook post showing a white woman giving a client a pedicure.

 The post says in part, “Worried about Coronavirus?….let us do your pedicures! According to the state of Nebraska inspector, our 💇spa is VERY clean!”

Julia Gehringer who is Chinese saw it as an insult to all people from 🇨🇳China. The spa owner apologized but  Julia said it was not good enough. 

This is what she replied “ [It’s] the kind of apology that says ‘I’m sorry if you were offended’, which is a non-apology. It’s another thing to say I’m sorry you were offended versus I’m sorry I was offensive,”.

Wigs and Weaves OUTRAGE!

Now, the American 💇🏾‍♀️hair care industry said it is feeling the effects of the Coronavirus 🤧disease’s global spread.

Stephanie Nolan, owns a business named XOXO Virgin Hair. She says it has become harder for her to obtain hair from the ⛩️Southeast Asia market as well.

“Due to the🤮 coronavirus, and the measures are taken to cut down on the virus in China, people aren’t allowed to go to, or really return to, work,” she said.

Shannell Wallace said she placed an order in January to buy hair extensions from China. But, more than a month later, that order has yet to reach her doorstep.

She said her vendor told her the coronavirus is to blame.

“They [the vendor] finally reached back out to me and said due to the virus, everyone, I’m guessing, is 🛌🛌quarantined and they’re not able to go to work,” Wallace said.

“Since the coronavirus can be transmitted through💉🤧🤮 bodily fluids like saliva or mucus, people living in close quarters can easily pass the 🦠🧫virus to one another.

🤔Hairstyling vs Hair Braiding The REAL Jim Crow of Cosmetology

🤔Hairstyling vs Hair Braiding The REAL Jim Crow of Cosmetology 

I agree with 💯Magan Forbes with the deregulation of makeup only because of cosmetic care innovation into advanced skin procedures such as eyelash extensions, chemical peels, and botox injections💉💉 due to the adoption of the “simple hair devices’” allowing cosmetology the use of “needles.”

However, her inability to answer the question clearly to Representative Mason as to “the difference in 💆cosmetic care of the skin” and the personal application of makeup 💄as “professionalism?’

Hairstyling, on the other hand, has been deregulated as from Megan’s own testimony 💬informing but not answering the question. She began by “an example would be Hairbraiding carved out of Hairstyling” same thing as Makeup carved out of cosmetic care.”

I would beg to differ that Makeup would be carved out of 🚫esthetician ONLY!

⛑️Makeup that is FDA safe.

👩‍🎨Makeup airbrush machines compressors with maximum pressurization.

🦠Makeup 3-hour Infection Control annual certification.

Back to hair braiding vs hairstyling, as the Director of ecoHair Braiders Association, I am will to adopt the language of Hairstyling to assist and help ALL 👩‍🎨women and #MenToo👨‍🎨 to abolish the Structural Racism within the beauty industry of these newly formed professions as Hair Artist a more neutral term.

🎅🏽Hair Braiders serve Minnesota Board of Cosmetology Coal for Christmas

Dear Minnesota Board of Cosmetology and its successors,

Naughty Minnesota Board of Cosmetology

It has come to my attention that the Board of Cosmetology has made unauthorized enforcement work fines totaling $1900.00 imposed to eco Hair Braiders Association, LLC. natural hair braiding associates an action that violated a restraining agreed to order by construing Hair Braiding Services and Salons in the preparation of cosmetology licensed services and salons derived therefrom.

We have reserved all rights for Hair Braiders, Hair Braiding Services, and Salons which was first published on March 2013 in Minnesota Secretary of State register, and I have registered the transfer with the Board of Cosmetology in 2016.

The Board of Cosmetology has no authority, control or powers to issue SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT AND CEASE AND DESIST ORDER for T.Robinson # 171661 and V.Hines #191980 and all similarly situated individuals and business establishments, for conduct consisting of performing and/or furnishing “Hair Braiding” and Hair Braiding Services, as defined in the Agreed Order.

The Board neither asked for intervening action review nor received permission from the eco Hair Braider Association, LLC. to enforce, inspect, and fine thr hair braiders, as the basis for SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT AND CEASE AND DESIST ORDER nor to make a report or distribute copies of it on the state website portal.

Therefore, we believe the Board has willfully infringed Hair Braiders’ rights under 17 U.S.C. Section 101 et seq. and could be liable for statutory damages as high as $150,000 as set forth in Section 504(c)(2) therein.

We demand that you immediately cease the enforcement, extortion, harassment, and distribution of all infringing SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT AND CEASE AND DESIST ORDERS derived from the eco Hair Braiders Association, LLC. and it’s associates.

We demand all complaint copies, including electronic complaint copies, of same, that you deliver to hair braiders, if applicable, all unused, undistributed copies of same, or destroy such copies immediately and that you desist from this or any other infringement of our rights in the future.

Due to the circumstances listed above being realized, the Board agreed that the stay imposed by this order shall be lifted and those Hair Braiders similarly situated, shall be entitled to immediately proceed with litigation.

The Hair Braiders want to proceed with litigation pursuant of violation of the restraining order, and first request that the Court hold a conference with counsel and issue a scheduling order to govern the continuation of this matter.

If we have not received an affirmative response from the Board of Cosmetology by September 24, 2019, indicating that the Board of Cosmetology has fully complied with these requirements, we shall consider taking any and all legal remedies available to rectify this situation.
Hair Braiding Court Order
Sincerely,
Eco Hair Braider Association, LLC.

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.

Worst 💉 ‘Vampire facial’: 2 infected with #HIV after New Mexico spa injections

This is the absolute worst thing that could happen in the beauty 💅 industry 🏭 during deregulation.

Why because we know proper infection control is not being addressed in the current curriculum, and it’s ONLY protection for the public required.

The same person 👤 infections these two people 👭 and they know because if the same strand of HIV 🧬 I telling y’all..#WrapItUp hair stylist when Sew-inFection Control Aids.

“Additional laboratory testing on specimens from the two clients indicates recent infection with the same HIV virus – increasing the likelihood that the two HIV infections may have resulted from a procedure at the VIP spa,” state health officials said in a statement.

How Does Hair Braiding Sew-In Weaving Needles 💉 Contribute to Hepatitis C raising rates in #BlackWomen?

A hepatitis C infection can lead to severe liver damage, so it’s essential to know all of the ways it can be transmitted. 

It can be tricky: More than 40 percent of people with hepatitis C cannot identify the source of infection.

Here all the ways hepatitis C can be transmitted in the hair braiding deregulation that increases hair stylist and your risk.

Blood transmission

The most common way to contract hepatitis C is through exposure to blood that contains the hepatitis C virus (HCV). 

This might happen if you:

💉 IF YOU use a sew-in needle that someone with hepatitis C has already used.

💉 If YOU are stuck by a needle that has come into contact with blood that contains HCV.

💉 IF YOU share eyebrow razors that may have touched blood that contains HCV
