Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia allows beauty practitioners without proper qualifications to earn in the country. It has no rules for licensing beauty professionals, so aspirants are free of licenses.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Saudi Arabia

Lash Technician / Spray Tanning Technician / Waxing Technician / Facialist

These services can be performed by a beauty therapist, which only requires one license. Since Saudi Arabia doesn’t have any license for the profession, skilled individuals with no qualifications can practise as beauticians.

Nail Technician

Nail technicians are not required to get a degree to work as professionals. High school graduates can already explore nail jobs in the country if they are skilled.

Massage Therapist

Certifications as a massage therapist are not necessary for practice in Saudi Arabia. The country encourages practitioners to learn the best skills and techniques to serve clients.


Hairstylists in the country are not necessarily those with training qualifications. They are not regulated, so skilled individuals with no qualifications can earn as hairstylists.


Barbers can have high school diplomas or be college graduates. The country has not set any laws for practitioners in this profession, so every skilled individual is welcome.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists are not expected to get professional training. They must be skilled in makeup, however, to become successful artists.
