Beauticians can enjoy working in Belgium without needing to comply with licensing requirements. The country doesn’t regulate the beauty industry, so a license is not required.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Belgium


Barbers in Belgium only need to be high school graduates to work in barbering. They have the option to get certified, however, which allows them to have higher rates.


Hairstylists are also not required to be certified to practice. Finishing high school is the only education level required to work in the hair industry.

Nail Technician

Nail techs are unregulated in the country. They can train and get skilled in nails at any school or course provider.

Makeup Artist / Waxing Technician / Spray Tanning Technician / Facialist / Lash Technician

These beauty professionals can get a cosmetologist or esthetician license. But Belgium doesn’t regulate them, so they have the freedom to learn professional skills at any school.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists don’t need to get a license in the country to work. They can be skilled high school graduates or professionals with a bachelor’s degree. Getting certified is optional in this profession.
