The way Rep. Michelle Ugenti-Rita figures it, no one ever died from a bad hair style or blow dry — at least not literally.
So the Scottsdale Republican wants to repeal a state law, which says you can’t style hair in Arizona without at least 1,100 hours of training at a state-licensed school.
Ugenti-Rita said she was approached by lobbyists for Drybar, a decade-old national firm that specializes in quickie blowouts. That can include everything from a shampoo to simply putting someone’s hair up with pins.
The firm already has three locations in the state.
Only thing is, to do even just that in Arizona requires a state license, something Ugenti-Rita said could cost close to $10,000.
