Timor-Leste has not set any requirements for beauticians to earn in the country. Skilled individuals can quickly enter the beauty industry and start their fulfilling careers.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Timor-Leste

Makeup Artist

Makeup aspirants are welcome to start their professional journeys in the industry early. High school education and makeup skills are the basic requirements for work.

Nail Technician

Nail techs are individuals with training certificates or not. They are not required to become certified or have a license to start their beautiful careers.

Spray Tanning Technician / Waxing Technician / Lash Technician / Facialist

Beauty therapists are skilled in these services and typically have a single license. Timor-Leste, however, doesn’t regulate beauticians, so licenses are not mandatory.


Barbers in the country can get started in their careers right after graduating from high school. They are not required further education to qualify as professionals in the industry.


Hairstylists are able to give professional services to the people in the country once they are skilled. Formal training is not required for practitioners as the profession is unregulated.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists can be certified professionals or not. There are no qualifications set for them, so individuals interested in professional practice can serve the public without a license.
