Topless barber charged with unlicensed cosmetology

LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - A woman who allegedly offered topless hairstyling services in northern Colorado faces criminal charges. But police say the problem isn't cutting hair without a top. It's cutting hair without a license.

The Longmont Times-Call reports ( http://goo.gl/Hh55PN) 46-year old Suzette Hall was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of practicing cosmetology without a license.

Hall's former partner says she advertised $45 topless haircuts online.

According to the arrest warrant, the former partner called police about the topless styling because she "did not believe this was safe or proper."

Police weren't able to turn up any Craigslist ads.

Hall's ex-husband told police she set up shop in Loveland and offered services as "Rebel Barber." He told police she applied for "a nude license for hairstylists," but no such license exists.
