Denmark is not a regulated country in terms of licensing beauticians. It doesn’t need certifications or licenses to allow practitioners to work.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Denmark

Nail Technician

Nail techs have no formal requirements in Denmark. They are free to take any nail course online or in person. Professional training is still encouraged to get skilled.

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

Esthetics or cosmetology usually covers these services, but Denmark doesn’t regulate them. Anyone wanting to become a beautician only needs to get skilled to offer the right services. Having a license is not a requirement.


Barbers are also free of regulations in the country. They can provide men’s grooming services with a certificate or a license as long as they are skilled.

Massage Therapist

High school graduates can already become massage therapists in Denmark. The country is not regulated, so anyone can work in this profession if they have the skills.


Hairstylists are not required to be certified or licensed. They can work and earn in the country without a license.
