Cosmetologists and Barbers Entitled to Overtime

A cosmetologist/barber is someone who provides beauty services, such as shampooing, cutting, coloring and styling hair; may advise clients on how to care for their hair, straighten hair or give it a permanent wave, or lighten or darken hair color; may also give manicures, pedicures, and scalp and facial treatments; provides makeup analysis; and cleans and styles wigs and hairpieces. Workers who primarily perform such work involving repetitive operations with their hands, physical skill and energy are not exempt and therefore entitled to overtime unless the employee additionally performs managerial duties or functions.
