Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and Nail Technology Board

Barbers were placed under the jurisdiction of the Department upon its creation in 1917. The

cosmetology (formerly known as beauty culture) profession was added to the Agency's scope of

regulation in 1928. In 1950, the Department began regulating barber schools and cosmetology

schools as well. Esthetics was added in 1988, nail technology in 1992 and hair braiding in

2011. The Board is made up of eleven individuals appointed by the Secretary, ten of whom are

licensed in at least one of the regulated professions and one public member. The Board is

charged with providing expert knowledge and advice on disciplinary matters and professional

performance and conduct.
