The State of North Carolina is sending a warning to barbers, hairstylist and spa salons that they could lose their license and be charged with a class II misdemeanor if they choose to extend their services to a clients home.
State officials say if you’re looking for a hair stylist, barber, or masseuse to provide salon or spa services at your home during the statewide order, don’t.
It’s illegal and could put you and the service provider in deep trouble.
Since all salons and spas have closed, officials say some providers have been offering or getting requests to make house calls. Lynda Elliott, Executive Director with the N.C. Cosmetic Arts Board, said, since people working in the industry are hands on with the client, there’s no way to keep six feet apart.
Providers who make house calls are at risk of losing their license and being charged with a Class II misdemeanor.
What happens if you are the person that ends up spreading COVID-19 and individuals die because you weren’t adhering to that social distancing? I think people are not understanding what could happen or the severity of it,” Elliott said.
