Beacon Center sues state over hair-washing license

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Beacon Center of Tennessee has filed a lawsuit against the state over shampooing.

A new state licensing regulation requires all beauticians to be fully licensed cosmetologists, even if they just wash hair.

No schools in Tennessee offer the curriculum for a hair-washing license.

The suit states the requirement is keeping women out of work and violates the 14th Amendment.
