Beauty professionals in Spain are not regulated. They can practice different services in the country without needing any license.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Spain

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists in Spain have different rates depending on their educational background. High school graduates have the lowest rates, while those who hold a bachelor’s degree have the highest income. Considering this data, interested individuals in massage therapy can already earn in the country even after they graduate from high school without further education.


Certification for hairstylists is not required in the country. As long as an individual finishes high school, they can already start practising hairdressing.


Barbers are also not required to get a license to work, like many countries in Europe. Professional training, however, is still encouraged to offer satisfactory services.

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

These services can have a cosmetologist or esthetician license or even have separate licenses. In Spain, these don’t have licensing regulations, so anyone interested in these industries can earn without a license. A makeup artist, for example, doesn’t need a certification to work in the country.

Nail Technician

Nail techs are also not required to hold a license to practice. They can learn professional skills from any training provider to become masters in nails.
