Do you need a license to braid hair in a beauty salon?

It completely depends on the State in which you reside. In most States, hair braiding falls under Cosmetology - some requiring a full program completion leading to licensure as a Cosmetologist, while others have a reduced program. Check with the laws in your State under Cosmetology.
