Clean Sweep

Report cards may be returning to beauty businesses around New York City. Bronx Borough president Ruben Diaz, J., and council member Rafael Espinal introduced the legislation this week that would grade such establishments on cleanliness. The system would function similar to that used for restaurants, with grades A, B, C, and D based on evaluations. Most salons and spas keep their business in top tip shape, however those that don't are a big risk for customers, where some have contracted serious fungal and other infections. Another change proposed is an expansion of training for hair and nail professionals. It may require some extra investment from the business owners but the goal is to provide healthy services and more transparency in the industry.
