Barbers And Cosmetologists Split Hairs

The New Brunswick barbers and cosmetologists associations could be said to be splitting hairs over a bill determining whether you should can have both a hairdressing and barbering license.; however, for the professionals involved, it's serious business.

West Side barber Blaine Harris says he doesn't see why you can't have both.

Cosmetology student Glenda Grover says the current legislation is keeping her from doing the work she wants, because she has to turn away male customers seeking a shave and send them to a barber.

The cosmetologists say they're willing to amend the bill to make sure it doesn't bar anyone from practicing their chosen profession. A government committee is currently considering the motion in a closed meeting.
