Non-Regulated Beauty Services in Trinidad and Tobago

Nail Technician

Nail technicians can start serving the public professionally after they finish high school. Training for the right skills can be done by any school or course provider.

Facialist / Spray Tanning Technician / Waxing Technician / Lash Technician

These beauty services can be licensed in one area, usually cosmetology or esthetics. Since Trinidad and Tobago has no laws for licensing beauty experts, individuals can practise in the country without any certificate or license.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists don’t need to get licensed or certified in the country. The minimum requirements are high school education and the proper skills to offer satisfactory makeup services.


Barbers can enjoy the many opportunities the industry offers as they are unregulated. They can be high school graduates or pursue further education in barbering.


Like barbers, hairstylists can also work professionally without holding a license. They only need the appropriate skills to perform different hair services on clients.

Massage Therapist

Massage professionals are free to explore the beauty industry as well. They only need the skills to practise professionally and earn in massage.
