Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey wants one occupational licensing rule to get a trim after Juan Carlos Montes de Oca was ordered to stop giving haircuts to homeless veterans by the state cosmetology board.
Montes de Oca, a cosmetology student from Tucson, was inspired by a man in London who helped the homeless on his days off. It motivated him to give haircuts to homeless veterans and encourage them to use their clean-cut look and positive spirit to apply for jobs.
Montes de Oca wanted to give back to the community while still practicing his skills in cosmetology school, and volunteered at Camp Bravo, a place where homeless veterans and others gather to find comfort, food, and shelter.
Camp Bravo’s director said Montes de Oca comes in as a friend and resembles a counselor to the people at the camp. “He’s part of the family here,” the director said of the young man in a video interview with the Foundation for Government Accountability, a Naples, Florida-based think tank focused on free-market principles.
