5:20 pm
training is a lot, but that some training is necessary. "there's a lot of sanitary and you can pass funguses and that's huge. so whether they go to school for 1,500 hours or 2,100 hours is what iowa requires, i don't think that's necessary but there should be some type of formal training" " 22:34:58 i honestly think they should go for at least 600 hours or so to get some form of license just because you are doing some sort of human contact you should have some training, if that's the case you'll just have people at home doing braids or on the corner." the iowa department of public health, which oversees the board of cosmetology said in a statement that it cannot comment on pending litigation. but it also encouraged the legislature to look at the issue again in the upcoming session. live in the newsroom, jill kasparie, kcrg-tv9 news. now here's a look at what's coming up at 5:30 on abc's
