Libya is one of those African countries without beauty licensing regulations. It only asks practitioners to develop the appropriate skills to work in beauty.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Libya

Waxing Technician / Lash Technician / Spray Tanning Technician / Facialist

Beauty therapists are able to offer multiple services, such as waxing, lash procedures, spray tanning and facials. But they don’t need a license in the country to earn as skills are more important.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists can begin early in the beauty industry. They don’t need to secure any license as Libya has no regulations for them.

Nail Technician

Nail technicians can start after completing high school. Obtaining professional certificates is optional, so anyone skilled can become an expert.


Hairstylists also don’t have rules for licenses in the country. They should only possess professional skills to become successful.


Barbers may or may not have certifications in Libya. They are free of qualifications as the country doesn’t have rules for them.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists are also not required to have any license to work. They only need to develop the proper makeup skills to ensure quality services.
