Bulgaria has no licensing rules set for beauticians. Practitioners can pursue a career in the industry without getting a license.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Bulgaria

Massage Therapist

High school graduates can already work as massage therapists in Bulgaria. The country doesn’t have regulations for the profession, so anyone skilled can practice.


Professional certification is not required for hairstylists. Practitioners only need to be high school graduates to start earning an income in the hair industry.

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

Individuals interested in these professions can get separate licenses for these services. But many countries offer cosmetology and esthetics licenses for these. In Bulgaria, however, these are not regulated, so anyone can learn the skills for them.

Nail Technician

Nail technicians don’t need to secure a license in the country as well. They can offer services to clients as long as they have the skills to do so.


Barbers are also free of licensing rules in Bulgaria. They can choose the training they want, whether online or in class, to become skilled.
