Indonesia is an Asian country without licensing laws for different beauty practitioners. Individuals are encouraged to have the necessary skills, however, to have successful careers in the industry.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Indonesia

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists don’t need to be licensed to earn in Indonesia. They are not regulated in the country, allowing even high school graduates to discover careers in the industry.

Nail Technician

Nail technicians with only high school education are welcome to work in the industry. They are unregulated, so having formal qualifications is unnecessary.


Barbers don’t need any license to become recognised professionals in the country. As long as they are skilled in barbering, they can earn in the industry.

Spray Tanning Technician / Waxing Technician / Facialist / Lash Technician

These services are what beauty therapists offer to clients. In Indonesia, however, licensing beauticians is not required as there are no regulations for them. Skilled individuals can enter the beauty industry.

Makeup Artist

Like the beauticians mentioned above, makeup artists are also unregulated. High school graduates can become makeup professionals if they have developed professional skills.


Certifications in hairstyling are not required in Indonesia. Aspirants can begin serving various clients in hair after graduating from high school.
