A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of an aspiring barber from Memphis who is unable to get a barber’s license because of his lack of a high school degree, NewsChannel5 reports. The Beacon Center is suing the Tennessee Board of Cosmetology and Barbers Examiners to challenge the law, noting that cosmetology licenses can be obtained without a diploma but not a barber’s license. The law was passed by the state legislature in 2015.
