Most states in Australia have no laws for licensing practising beauty professionals, including Victoria (VIC). The state doesn’t ask beauty practitioners for a license or any form of qualification to make them recognised professionals.
However, practitioners, especially those who are planning to build their own salons, must comply with the health and business regulations in VIC. The beauty industry is regulated under personal care services, and the guidelines talk about infection control and other health-related rules.
Cities or places in the state may also have their own business or health and safety rules. In Monash, for example, a business permit must be processed and approved by the Council. Geelong requires home salons to be registered under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act. Practitioners are always advised to check with their local government for specific laws relating to beauty.
