Bosnia and Herzegovina

Like many countries in Europe, Bosnia and Herzegovina has no regulations for professional beauticians. Skills are encouraged to master to provide the best services to clients.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Bosnia and Herzegovina

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

Getting a cosmetology or esthetician license usually allows one to offer these services. Since Bosnia and Herzegovina is not regulated, aspirants can practice in the country even without a license.

Nail Technician

Nail technicians are also not required to secure a certificate or license to work. They only need to learn the skills in nails to offer services to the public.


Hairstylists are professionals who are high school graduates or with certificates. The country doesn’t require practitioners further education in hairstyling. As long as they are skilled and have finished high school, they can work in the industry.


Barbers can get certified or not in the country. High school education is the minimum requirement to work as a barber, and holding a license is not necessary.

Massage Therapist

High school graduates can already become massage therapists in the country if they have the skills. Bosnia and Herzegovina has no rules for licensing, so certifications and licenses are not a requirement.
