An Overview of Braiding Freedom

Hair braiding is a time-tested, safe practice that is deeply rooted in African cultural heritage and carries with it significant historical importance. Across the country, some states make it illegal for braiders to make money from their skills unless they first spend thousands of dollars and attend government-mandated cosmetology training. A project of the Institute for Justice, Braiding Freedom seeks to end the practice of government regulation of hair braiding.
