Certification is optional and you may want to become certified if you want to expand your employment opportunities. Certification will allow artists who are not cosmetologists or estheticians to legally work in salons, spas, and weddings.
How do I get certified?
Upon the passing and becoming law proposed legislation would allow the Board Of Barbering and Cosmetology to issue a certificate to those wishing to be certified, meet the eligibility requirements and pay the initial certificate fee of forty five dollars($45).
How long would the certificate be valid for?
