Brandy Davis’ livelihood was stripped away from her in January 2022. A professional, licensed eyelash-extension specialist in Texas, Brandy had a thriving business in the Lone Star State. But when she moved to Oklahoma, her state license, private certificate and expertise meant nothing to the Oklahoma State Board of Cosmetology and Barbering, which forbids her from practicing eyelash extensions without a cosmetology or esthetician license.

Brandy has teamed up with the Institute for Justice to file a lawsuit challenging the state’s cosmetology licensing requirements.
