Botswana has not set any regulations for professional beauty specialists. It allows interested individuals to explore and practise their abilities in beauty without a license.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Botswana

Lash Technician / Facialist / Spray Tanning Technician / Waxing Technician

Beauty therapists are equipped with skills in lashes, facials, spray tanning and waxing. They can have one license that allows them to provide multiple services. But Bostwana is unregulated in beauty, so skilled practitioners can earn in the industry.


Barbers can start their barbering career paths after high school. The country has no laws for practitioners in this industry, so skills are the only minimum technical requirement.

Nail Technician

Nail techs can obtain professional certifications or not to practise. They don’t have formal qualifications to meet in the country.

Makeup Artist

Whether a practitioner is a high school graduate or a college degree holder, both can become makeup artists. The profession is unregulated, so anyone skilled can practise.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists are not required to secure any license to become professionals. They only need to gain the proper skills to offer massage.


Hairstylists only need professional skills to be considered practitioners in the country. There are no requirements set for them to complete.
