Chile’s beauty industry is not regulated. Practitioners can learn the skills the way they want and offer services without any license.

Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Chile

Nail Technician

Nail technicians can start early careers or proceed with further education as Chile has no licensing requirements for them. Skilled individuals are welcome to discover exciting jobs in nails.


Barbers are not required formal certificates or professional licenses in the country. They can start their careers as long as they are equipped with the proper skills.

Massage Therapist

Massage therapists are also like the beauty professionals above. They don’t have licensing laws to follow in Chile, allowing any skilled individual to serve the public.

Spray Tanning Technician / Lash Technician / Facialist / Waxing Technician

Beauty therapists, cosmetologists or estheticians are usually licensed to provide multiple hair, nail and skin treatment services. Since the country is unregulated in this industry, skilled individuals with or without formal requirements can practise.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists are only expected to gain the skills they need for the industry. Obtaining professional certificates are not needed to offer professional services.


Hairstylists in Chile can also freely explore various hair opportunities without qualifications. Having a license is not necessary for practice.
