(B) Cosmetologists and estheticians holding valid board licenses and other Ohio professional board licenses may provide permanent makeup services in a salon if they comply with all of the following requirements:

(1) The salon shall obtain an approval to operate a business that offers tattooing services from the board of health of the city or general health district in which the business is located and shall comply with all requirements of Chapter 3730. of the Revised Code and Chapter 3701-9 of the Administrative Code.

(C) Advanced techniques may be introduced as part of a cosmetology school curriculum, or obtained through CE providers, trade shows, private training or demonstrations and do not require certification, although some manufacturers may certify the use of the product or service. Advanced techniques constitute an enhancement of the basic skills taught to each licensee in schools and, for that reason, advanced technique services do not require approval of the board before a licensee trained to use them does so in a salon.
