Possibly. So for example, I have seen instances where a cosmologist license is required to do hair and make-up but nails were not covered (this is not specific to CT of course). In that case, while everyone that did hair was required to have a license, those without one were able to do nails.

Keep I mind, of course, that in most situations everyone who is an owner must have a license if a license is required to perform those services offered.

Your question is very specific and I would suggest that you discuss with a lawyer in private and perhaps have them do some due diligence to avoid any possibly more expensive problems that can arise.

Most of us here, including myself, offer a free phone consult.
