A new bill has been introduced that directly affects the beauty industry in New Jersey. A2985 would permit chair or booth rentals for the purpose of providing cosmetology and hairstyling services or ancillary services. Assemblywomen Connie Wagner (District 38, Bergen and Passaic Counties) and Annette Quijano (District 20, Union County) are sponsoring this piece of legislation.

A2985 would do the following:

  • Reinstate the chair or booth rental license in the state of New Jersey
  • Allow chair or booth renters with practicing licenses to lease a chair or booth from the owner of a licensed shop
  • Allow chair or booth rental licenses to be renewable on a biennial basis on a date determined by the board
