WBEZ reports that a new hair-brading law, passed earlier this year, is going into effect; it simplifies the lengthy and expensive process hair braiders have previously had to go through in order to practice.

The new law has actually been in the works for a long time, through a tough fight that hinged on whether hair braiding is cosmetology and what sort of regulations should be required from whom. In 2006, Tasneem Paghdiwala* wrote a long, fascinating cover story on the issue.
