Occupational licenses are a government-sanctioned barrier to entry. It is a restraint of trade, which would be illegal under the antitrust laws if private citizens tried to exclude competition on their own. Moreover, the licensing boards that regulate these occupations are composed primarily of members of that profession — who have a vested interest in keeping out newcomers.

Hairdressers and barbers are not the only individuals subject to occupational licenses. In the 1950s, one in 10 jobs required a license. Today, according to The New York Times, that number is one in three. As government has grown bigger and more intrusive, it has made it harder and more expensive to earn a living.

If a job can kill or maim, then the government should require a license. Yet Kentucky requires licenses and/or permits for art therapists; private investigators, falconers, live fish dealers, sod producers and taxidermists.

Barbershops, small cafes, bar rooms, etc. all are potential gathering places for people to form new ideas and discussions.  Perhaps, even for conspiracy!  Places for revolution to ferment....no wonder restrictions and licenses are required. Can't have thinking men and woman gathering together in little informal groups to foment faith in themselves. Might get some strange ideas...

A barber (from the Latin barba, "beard") is a person whose occupation is mainly to cut, dress, groom, style and shave men's and boys' hair. A barber's place of work is known as a "barber shop" or a "barber's". Barber shops are also places of social interaction and public discourse. In some instances, barbershops are also public forums. They are the locations of open debates, voicing public concerns, and engaging citizens in discussions about contemporary issues. They were also influential in helping shape male identity.
 
In previous times, barbers (known as barber surgeons) also performed surgery and dentistry. With the development of safety razors and the decreasing prevalence of beards, in English-speaking cultures, most barbers now specialize in cutting men's scalp hair as opposed to facial hair.

Sure, they want you to work.  By their standards and jurisdiction.  Under their so called 'protection'.  Small business owners have no chance of survival.  Fees for this, penalties for that. Licenses, dues and diligence, notaries, etc. All designed to suck the little guy dry of his drive to succeed. When Wally world moves in, all mom and pop shops get shafted!  The weight of Wally and its greed rests on all our rolly polly little fish heads.

Basically, we all must have 'permission' to receive an advanced education in every form of self suffiency.  Small individual business', skilled craftsmen and Mom and Pop stores are all going the way of the dodo.
