The state law requiring one hour of abuse-prevention training for stylists, barbers, cosmetologists, estheticians, hair braiders and nail technicians as part of the licensing process goes into effect Sunday, Jan. 1. The National Conference of State Legislatures says the Illinois measure appears to be the first of its kind in the country. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh)
