Zimbabwe is like many of the African countries that don’t have regulations for beauticians. It allows individuals to explore beautiful opportunities in different areas of the industry without licenses.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Zimbabwe


Hairstylists have no laws for licensing or recognising hair specialists. They can become practitioners in Zimbabwe without formal requirements.

Nail Technician

Nail technicians can begin a rewarding career in the industry after high school. The country has no regulations for licensing nail experts, so anyone skilled can provide services.


Barbers are also able to pursue their careers in barbering without formal requirements. They don’t need a license in the industry, and skills are more important in offering services.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists in the country can begin their careers early. High school graduates are able to enter the industry and earn as professionals.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists don’t need a license to practise various techniques. They should make sure, however, to master the best skills and techniques.

Spray Tanning Technician / Facialist / Lash Technician / Waxing Technician

Beauty therapists or estheticians usually offer these services. But Zimbabwe has no rules for them, so anyone skilled with at least high school education can become a beautician.
