Why It’s Important to Get Licensed as a Cosmetologist

All beauty school graduates at Colleen O’Hara’s Beauty Academy should understand licensure in California. Within your chosen field within the Cosmetology industry, getting licensed can often be a complex maze that is tough to follow and something that not a lot of students care to think about or truly understand until after graduation… yes, while there are some states that do not require licensure at all, there are others states such as California that do. So in essence, while there are some states where it is simply optional to get licensed as a cosmetologist, it is firmly enforced by the State of California.

Some students are also curious: what if I move, how does this affect my license as a cosmetologist in California? Well, it’s rather simple. If a student moves to another state, those students generally have to go through the entire process of acquiring their license in the new state all over again if required by their new state of residence. In short, while some states have reciprocity agreements with California, other states won’t have the same ones in place and thus it is important to consider what is required in your new state of residence in order to either keep, update or obtain your new Cosmetology License.
