Except as may be necessary for the protection of the public health, safety or morals, the board shall not make any rule or regulation restraining the normal and incidental business of aestheticians’ shops and hairdressers’ shops by restricting the retail sale therein of so-called beauty preparations, lotions, salves, toilet articles, jewelry, gift novelties, female personal attire and accessories or other articles.
