Are GFI recepts required in beauty salons to be used for hair dryers, even if not near a sink?

Cant find it in NEC (Don't think its there or at least 210.8(B)) "GFCI Protection for Personnel" might apply for simular situations via OSHA regs for hand-held equipment?

But not a bad idea none the less.... Wet hair and floors etc.

As an Inspector I recommend them when I inspect beauty salons. I can not, and do not require them but, mentioning the safety aspect when the owner is near almost always gets them installed and the electrician gets an extra. Alan
If it was easy, anyone could do it.
