Mobile between States?
#1
I hope this is not a ridiculous question but I am wondering if you have a mobile salon (and are licensed of course) can you also perform services in another state if they do not have mobile salons?
I.E. If Maryland allows mobile work, can you work on a client in D.C even though owners there cannot do mobile work?

Is that the same as a tech that has 300 hours in NY but works on a photoshoot in CA that requires 600 hours?

Thank you!

I belive you would have to be licensed in DC to work there regardless if it was a mobile service or not. If mobile services were allowed in DC that would be the next part of the question.. I would say call the licensing agency in DC and ask them

That is a very interesting question...There must be a way, because there are many nail techs who travel to do on-site work for Runway shows/models, celebrities, movie sets and the list goes on. Perhaps you would have to go through an agency to do that sort of service outside of where you are licensed? I'll be very interested to hear what you find out.

In Tn. you are allowed to work photo shoots, beauty shows, modeling assignments, nursing homes, home bound, etc., but no mobile salons. And as a company educator you are allowed anywhere. But as a mobile salon, if allowed in a state, I think you would have to be licensed in each state. I know I have considered licensing in NC also. You can be licensed in more than one state.
Always be kind....you get farther.

I work WY and SD because I live on the border and I am licensed in both. That was the requirement.

Great of ya to think outside of the box, but another issue ya will need to check on is that some states won't let ya be mobile in their state. Would need to check that state's regs. fpr sure before ya do it.

Hi Tashawna. I am licensed and insured cosmetologist in DC/MD/VA. I have a mobile business but only provide home services in Virginia as that is the only state that allows you to provide mobile services in someone's home. And yes - you have to hold a Virginia license. In Maryland, mobile services are not legal AT ALL and you should not provide them in anyone's home. If you want to participate in a community/public event providing nail services, you should have clients sign waivers so that there is no liability on your part. If I am doing a bridal party or spa party, I include the waiver with their service contract. In DC, you can provide mobile nail services in someone's home as long as you are employed at a salon. The clients you service are clients who can't get to the salon because of physical limitations (a handicap or medical condition) not because they want the luxury of having someone provide nail services them in their home.

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to email me at [email protected]

You're welcome! I had to do all of my homework before I established my mobile spa. Calling each state board and getting all the info took time, but if you're serious about your business, you have to to things by the book.

The info I was telling you about is the U.S. Licensing and Educational Data in the 2010-2011 Nails Magazine Big Book. I tried to find the data online for you, but it seems like it's only available for purchase for $40. I'll put the info below in case you want to purchase it. It's great info on all the state requirements, including whether you can be mobile.

Here's the link: http://store.nailsmag.com/index.cfm?acti...3&cid=1051

But if you really want it, I'll scan and email it to you, just let me know. :-)
