Anyone interested in any of these beauty services must become a licensed cosmetologist in Brazil. They should apply to the Brazilian National Health Surveillance Agency to process for the license. They are required to finish a cosmetology course at any licensed institution to obtain a certificate. The next step is to complete an application form and provide the requirements for the licensure exam. Passing the exam allows them to get a license.
Massage therapists are regulated by the Federal Council of Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy. Like the above beauty professionals, they are also expected to finish an education program in massage at a recognised school. Courses usually have 800-1,200 training hours to complete. Students then need to fill out an application form for the exam and must pass the test to obtain a massage license.
