Iowa Natural Hair Braiding Registry

As of July 1, 2023,  Professional Licensing and other health and occupational licenses will become part of the Iowa Department of Inspections,  Appeals, and Licensing (DIAL) as a new organizational structure for state government goes into effect. Government departments and agencies that provide related services or have similar business functions are aligning to better serve Iowans.  You can expect the same quality services you get now from HHS to continue as usual. 

A person shall register with the Iowa Department of Public Health in order to perform a commercial service involving natural hair braiding.  Natural Hair Braiding means a method of natural hair care consisting of braiding, locking, twisting, weaving, cornrowing, or otherwise physically manipulating hair without the use of chemicals to alter the hair’s physical characteristics that incorporates both traditional and modern styling techniques.

No fee is required for registration as a natural hair braider in the state of Iowa. Questions about the registry program can be addressed to the department by phone at 515-281-0254.
