Finland has no licensing requirements for beauty professionals. Individuals can get skilled and offer services with no license needed.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Finland

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

Practitioners offering spray tanning, makeup, facials, lash and waxing services can become cosmetologists or estheticians. But Finland doesn’t require any license for these services, so practitioners can work in beauty without formal qualifications.


Barbers only need to be high school graduates in the country. They can pursue further education in barbering and get certified, however, to earn higher than those without certificates.


Hairstylists are also not required to get certified. They only need to be skilled in their craft to offer satisfactory services.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists can also enjoy earning in the country without needing any license or certification. Practitioners have the option to get certified, however, to have higher rates.

Nail Technician

Nail techs are also free of any licensing requirement in Finland. They only need to have skills to offer the right services.
