Turkey is a country in Asia without strict laws for certifying and licensing practitioners in beauty. It permits unlicensed or uncertified workers to provide beauty services to different clients.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Turkey


Aspirants with high school education can already become professional barbers in Turkey. Practitioners in the industry are not required to be certified or licensed to work.

Spray Tanning Technician / Lash Technician / Waxing Technician / Facialist

Beauty therapists typically have the ability to offer multiple services for hair, nails and skin. They need a license in many countries but not in Turkey. This means skilled aspirants can earn without formal qualifications.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists are also able to serve clients free of any license. They only need the ideal skills to give satisfactory massage services.

Nail Technician

Nail technicians are manicurists, pedicurists or nail artists and are required licenses in some places around the world. Turkey, however, doesn’t regulate them, allowing practitioners without proper qualifications to work.

Makeup Artist

Getting certified or finishing college is not a requirement for makeup artists in the country. Those with skills who have finished high school can become practitioners.


Hairstylists are also free of certifications or any equivalent qualifications. They only need at least high school education to start exploring options once they are skilled.
