100+ salons in Washington state have license, sanitation or safety violations

KHQ.COM - More than 100 salons in Washington state either failed safety or sanitation inspections, or had license violations in the last year from the Washington State Department of Licensing. If you think these salons are required to post these violations publicly, think again.

Unlike restaurants, there's no letter grade at the door that can tell you if the services inside have been deemed safe or violation free. Violators receive a fine from the state and then continue running the business as usual. To find out if your salon, or any other business place has received a violation you can visit the Washington State DOL website.

The DOL posts all violations on their website under the "professions" section for numerous professions. Salon violations can be found under the "cosmetologists" section.
