Liberia has been planning to regulate its beauty industry but has not set any formal laws for it yet. It currently has no licensing rules for aspiring beauticians, so individuals without licenses can work.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Liberia

Nail Technician

Nail technicians are able to start giving services after high school. They are only required the skills to practise nail services aside from high school education.


Hairstylists in the country have no requirements to meet because they are unregulated. Individuals can practise and become experts in hair through experience.

Facialist / Spray Tanning Technician / Lash Technician / Waxing Technician

Beauticians or estheticians cover these services and can get one license. Since the country has no rules for them, all skilled individuals can explore jobs in beauty with no license needed.


Barbers can practise services in men’s grooming without any license. They have no rules to follow as professionals, so anyone skilled can be a barber.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists can start their income journeys after completing high school. They don’t need a license to work as skilled professionals.

Massage Therapist

Having a certificate in massage is not necessary in Liberia. Skills are what the industry needs from practitioners.
