Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Djibouti


Hairstylists can become professionals in the country without showing proof of training. They can pursue further education in hair or not.

Waxing Technician / Facialist / Lash Technician / Spray Tanning Technician

Beauticians have the opportunity to develop multiple skills and can have one license or title. Typically, they are beauty specialists, but Djibouti has no regulations for them. This means individuals only need to master the appropriate skills to work in the industry.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists have the option to explore many jobs in the country with no requirements. The government has not set any regulations for them, so licenses are not necessary.

Nail Technician

Nail technicians only need to learn professional skills to practise. The country has no laws for them, so certifications are not required.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists don’t need to be degree holders as Djibouti doesn’t require them to be. High school education is enough to start an exciting career in makeup.


Barbers are not regulated as well, which allows any skilled individual to practise in the country. They can get certified, however, and gain more qualifications.
