TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (FNN) – Orlando State Representative Daisy Morales had a successful Legislative Session as a freshman lawmaker, co-sponsoring over 110 bills.
Monday, Rep. Morales’ Barber Services Bill (HB 855) finally landed on Governor Ron DeSantis’ desk for signature to become law on July 1.
HB 855 would allow barbers to cut hair and offer other services outside of brick-and-mortar shops.
“I’m grateful and excited this bill passed with bipartisan support in both chambers. We’ve leveled the playing field for barbers to thrive, extending more freedom to make outside location calls since cosmetologists are already providing mobile services for their clients,” said Rep. Daisy Morales (D-Orlando) in a statement.
All barbers must be licensed in order to offer services and the bills don’t change any licensing requirements, according to Morales’s press release.
