An Overview of NJ Hair Braiding Freedom Coalition

African-style hair braiding uses no dyes or chemicals, and it is safe for braiders to perform and safe for the people getting their hair braided. It is deeply rooted in African cultural heritage and carries with it significant historical importance.

New Jersey has made it illegal for braiders to make money from braiding skills unless individuals first spend potentially thousands of dollars and attend 1,200 hours of government-mandated cosmetology training. This organization seeks to end government regulation of hair braiding.
