Human trafficking signs for salons

WACO, Texas - Cosmetology schools and salons in Texas now play a critical role in guiding human trafficking survivors to the right services.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation says every cosmetology salon and school is required to display a human trafficking sign.

On first inspection, if a salon doesn't have the sign up - the TDLR will give them one. After that, not having the sign up could result in a possible fine.

"I think we as an industry are pretty compassionate anyway, and we would be more than happy to reach out," says salon owner Laura Anderson. "So this is more, just saying. If you have the right information, please share it with the right people. Please get them in contact with the right people."

The sign must be in English, Spanish and Vietnamese - and needs to include the national hotline for victims of human trafficking.
