Nails, Hair, Make-Up and Massages all require hands-on treatment from beauticians, estheticians, cosmetologists, barbers, hairstylists and massage therapists.

In many cases, local agencies add additional license and permitting requirements too.
Omaha is as friendly to business as people there are to one another. Home to several large companies, Omaha is a major business center of the plains and Nebraska welcomes the commerce. Local Omaha and Douglas County regulations are minimal with most regulatory licenses and permits coming from the state. Omaha still has its roots in agriculture and food processing as it is home to ConAgra foods, one of the world's largest food conglomerates. However, it also has insurance, brewing, banking, securities and rail transportation sectors.
