Is it Illegal to Cut Hair at Home?

If you are a hairdresser who is thinking about working at home, make sure you look into it before proceeding further! Here’s all that you should know about freelancing.

  1. You might need permission

If you want to run a business from your home, you may need permission from your landlord where they state that they are fine with you turning your property to a commercial place. Although there is nothing illegal about cutting hair at home, you may want to read some rules & guidelines on how to do it correctly.

  1. Each city is different

Regulations vary from country to country, and they can also vary from city to city. Ask around to get the information that applies specifically to your area. Your town hall is a good place to start.

  1. You might not profit from working from home

Although it may sound intriguing and practical, doing haircuts from your home is not the smartest move. Also, you won’t make a lot of money (at the beginning for sure). Why is that so? Well, you are inviting someone to your personal space and where they’ve never been. Would you feel comfortable walking around in someone else’s home or apartment?

Cutting hair from home may be a good temporary idea (if all else fails) but it isn’t a good solution in the long run.
