There has been confusion and conjecture about when massage therapists and licensed beauty professionals (estheticians, cosmetologists, barbers, nail professionals, and electrologists) may resume business operations in California. Following is the latest information for estheticians.
Estheticians Cannot Return to Work at this Time
Body waxing and esthetician services are not currently permitted. It is outside the scope of the hairstyling guidance. This will be included in a later reopening guidance.
Please continue to monitor the governor's site, as all available information can be found there: https://covid19.ca.gov/roadmap/#guidance.
