62 Wendy Jacobs – Bridging Beauty Biz Policy and Practitioners

By Lori Crete | Beauty Biz Show

Jul 31

Before I introduce the show to you today, I just want to remind you that The Beauty Biz Workshop is just around the corner! Join us on October 1st and 2nd in Palm Springs, California to learn amazing new tools to creating a profitable established business. For more information you can visit The Beauty Biz Workshop page.

Now for today’s podcast, I am really excited to introduce Wendy Jacobs! She is a licensed esthetician who lives in San Diego, CA. Wendy has been working to bridge the gap between practitioners and spa owners and the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology in Sacramento, CA. She is driving to Sacramento almost every week to remind the Board that our part of the Barbering and Cosmetology licensing has kind of been forgotten. I think you’ll find this episode motivating.

The other thing that I found was a challenge when I started digging into these laws and bills that are being proposed and also having the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology Acts, is there really is no esthetician involved in the conversation.” – Wendy Jacobs

Show Notes:

  • How do you know if what you are doing is legal
  • What is the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology
  • The importance of an equipment evaluation
  • Who is on the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology

I’m trying to work on communicating with Barber-Cosmo as much as I can to create a better relationship and let them know that we’re not trying to be sleazy and hide things from them. We want to know what we’re doing wrong.” – Wendy Jacobs

  • What is the California Aesthetic Alliance
  • What are the laws for estheticians
  • Why is getting involved in policy important
  • How can you influence requirements for small business inspections
  • How to stay informed on beauty biz legal requirements

What’s happened is just our own professional complacency and not going to the Board of Barbering and Cosmo (the BBC) website and reading the rules, and understanding the rules, and things like that. Most people have never even cracked open the rules. They maybe glanced at the poster while they walked by it at the shop and that’s about it. They don’t know what we can and can’t do.” – Wendy Jacobs
