Tasmania has not set laws for beauty licenses, except for the hair industry. Barbers and hairstylists must be qualified to perform hair services for various clients.

Regulated Beauty Services in Tasmania

Hairstylist / Barber

Tasmania regulates hairdressers and barbers under the Hairdressers’ Registration Act 1975. The act highlights three classes of hairdressing: male hairdressing (barbering), female hairdressing (hairstyling) and male and female hairdressing (barbering and hairstyling).

Section 11 of the Act states that a class certificate is granted if the applicant has finished a trade course and an apprenticeship program facilitated by a recognised department or agency. The applicant may also apply if they have qualifications equivalent to the standards given in Tasmania, although an examination may be required if the Secretary sees the need for it.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists in the state can have fulfilling careers even if they are not certified professionals. Tasmania has no regulations for practising artists and only expects the right skills from them.

Massage therapists are also unregulated and are not required professional licenses. Skilled and trained practitioners are welcome to become recognised professionals.

Facialist / Lash Technician / Spray Tanning Technician / Waxing Technician

Beauticians in Australia don’t need to be registered or licensed professionals. They can train anywhere and gain the necessary skills to be the best beauty practitioners.

Nail techs can pursue excellent careers in the beauty industry without a license. Australia has no licensing rules for them, allowing practitioners to earn however they want without restrictions.
