That's awfully pessimistic, but I see your point. I suppose having some
hairdressers rendered as generic healthcare providers will be
confusing... and no general-purpose renderer will adapt to something as
minor as this. So I'll relent.

I'd really like a tag we could use for both hairdressers and
specialists, but unless we find a less monstrous version of
lice_removal_treatment_on_premise=yes I'll let it go.

I'm in the same boat, actually. In Spanish these are never called
"clinics", they're either "centros de eliminación de piojos" (lice
elimination centres) or "peluquerías de piojos" (lice hairdressers).

I don't know what's the expectation in English-speaking countries, but I
find it difficult to categorise this as a clinic. I'm not even sure if
they operate under the same laws as speech therapists and typical
clinics in Spain; I think not.

The only reason I even proposed healthcare is because, well, it /is/ a
hygiene and health problem... and both amenity and shop seemed too generic.

How would we map that? healthcare=orthopaedics +
