‘Men’s haircuts’ discount would violate VT anti-gender discrimination regulation – State House Headliners

A proposed state regulation would ban licensed barbers or hairdressers from providing or advertising haircuts based on gender or race, unless the prices are all the same.

 

 

"The current OPR rules, approved in 2005, say nothing about gender or race. The OPR website does not offer a timeline for when the new regulations, if approved, will take effect. So if your barber or hairdresser has a sign that says “men’s cuts $15” but more for women’s cuts, he or she is within regulations – for now. If/when the regulation takes effect, hairdressers must price their services based on cost of product, and the time, effort and skill needed – but not on race or gender."
