Queen Roshae shows a group of girls onto the mobile salon bus. They giggle and whisper as they climb aboard, one by one plopping seats on a long bench. School’s out and they’ve come to the Central Community House to wait for their parents to get off work.

Two bills pending in Ohio's House and Senate are pitting big hair salons against cosmetology schools as lawmakers propose eliminating the state's mandate requiring someone with a manager's license on salon premises at all times.

The identical bills seek a variety of regulatory changes, but the manager's license debate has divided the industry.
