Black Beauty Culture Hair Innovator Trade Consultations and Clarity on Delivery of Natural Hair Care

About this event

The Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency (NSAA) has received an application to designate Black Beauty Culture Hair Innovator (natural hair care) as a voluntary trade. This includes hair service such as braids, weaves, knots, and locs.

The application was reviewed by a Trade Advisory Committee composed of individuals who are involved in this work. We are at the consultation stage and would like to hear from people of African and Indigenous descent, as well as hairstyling professionals and educators. NSAA and the Department of Labour and Advanced Education invite you to help determine if there is support for Black Beauty Culture Hair Innovator (natural hair care) to become a voluntary trade with a training pathway for certification. We also want your input on how to enhance the understanding that natural hair care services are not regulated under the Cosmetology Act.
