Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, a registered cosmetologist and a barber shall not be prohibited from working in the same facility or physical space; provided, however, that separate areas in said facility are designated one area for cosmetologists, and one area for barbers and neither a cosmetologist nor a barber shall perform their respective services for any person except in the appropriately designated area. Such area shall be separated by a dividing structure which need not inhibit access from one area to the other but which shall visibly delineate said area. No person seeking the services of, or being serviced by, either a cosmetologist or barber shall be allowed in the area reserved for the other except while waiting for such services.
Where only one toilet exists at such facility or physical space, a cosmetologist, barber or apprentice thereof may make use of such toilet.
