Licensing of a beauty salon

Nobody told that opening a beauty salon would be easy, however, how satisfying your business will be after you’re done with all legal issues! One of them is beauty salon licensing. Many people think that obtaining a license is super hard, however, it’s not so! 

Beauty salons must be licensed by state and even by local government agencies in some cases. As you know, licenses to operate a beauty salon are issued by state agencies. Besides, in some states you should become a licensed salon manager in order for you to be able to run a salon.

You’re not alone: in most of the cases, cosmetologists, barbers, nail technicians and estheticians obtain their licenses from the same professional board that will issue you a beauty salon license. 

In fact, you’ll need more than one beauty salon license. Among the rest are the following licenses:

 - Professional License;

 - Salon Manager License (in some states salon managers must hold a separate license).
