Pro Beauty License State Look Ups

As mentioned in our Part 1 - Hidden Challenges of Pro Beauty License Verification, operations and/or compliance teams would require identifying where to look for each state, researching each license to confirm a match, and monitoring that license status to make sure that it is valid for Cosmetology and Barbering.   Organizations must be familiar with their state’s guidelines and follow them diligently for their own and their client’s safety.  To aid you in this process, listed below is a representative sample of authoritative license verification for cosmetology and barbering providers by state compiled by Mesh.
