Welcome to the boards Tee, but I would seriously recommend you have a look at some of the previous posts regarding moving and working in Barbados. Unless you are a Barbadian, or born of Barbadian Parents, or a Caribbean National, you would require a work permit to work and these are not easy to come by. The only other option is to start your own business, but you would have to prove, monetarily that it's feasible for the Government to allow you to do this, and you would have to have a work permit to actually run your own company.

Your trade might be something that is up and coming in the UK, but may mean nothing here in Barbados.

thanks for that, i know the makeup is not to well know there but the nails are plenty full, is it right that if you start your own buisiness u have to employ so many basions, also having been there for a while and speaking to people, it may catch on specially with white basions what do u think

I'm guessing by Baisons, you mean Bajans (Barbadians)?? I don't neccesarily think there is a quota for how many Bajans you employ in a company, but if you employ any one that is not a Barbadian, they must have a work permit. And the only time a work permit would be given is if there is NOT a Barbadian who can fill that role.

Re the procedures etc, I'm not the one to ask. I visit a salon once every 2 - 3 mths to get a haircut and that's about it. I don't purchase makeup in Barbados, and only wear it sparely, semi-permanent would not be for me for sure, and don't really know anyone else that would do it. but who knows, maybe they would.
