Frequently Asked Questions... Answers

1.  Yes, if your state does not have apprenticeship guidelines in place, you need to apply for a School of Cosmetology license. And the forms, contracts and other documents that are
on the CD can be used to complete that application.

2.   Check with the Board of Cosmetology in your state for any updates. The following states
provided guidelines at the time of publication, Alabama, Alaska, California, Delaware,
District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania,
Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Washington.

3.   Most states have the application available online. Some states require that you call and they will mail one to you. If there is an application available online, I will include it with the purchase of the book.

4.  When a state does not have approved guidelines for apprenticeship and you can request to be heard by the board of cosmetology and state why you believe you should be able to proceed with an apprenticeship in your salon. When you are only going to be training 1 to 2 students at a time, they should make an exception on things such as the minimum square footage. You can always use approved guidelines from the state of Michigan and compare  your state requirements to present your reasoning.

In any economy a salon can build their staff with qualified, vested team members with in house training. It will guarantee continuing education for even the most experienced staff. And you will stay ahead of your competition with steady growth. You can increase the number of clients you service in a day and increase your income.
