SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah woman who braids hair to supplement her family's income has won a federal lawsuit against the state over its licensing process for her craft, arguing state regulations violated her right to earn a living.
A federal judge ruled this week that the state's requirement that Jestina Clayton get a cosmetology license to braid hair was "unconstitutional and invalid" because regulations are irrelevant to Clayton's profession.
