Re: AKA Libertarians
Initially created in 1929 as the State Board of Barbers and Cosmeticians, the Board of Cosmetology was established as currently organized by Laws 1958, Chapter 101. Statutory authority is found at A.R.S. §§32-501 through 32-576. Regulatory rules are found at Arizona Administrative Code Title 4, Chapter 10 (A.A.C. R4-10-101 through R4-10-405.)
Two measures enacted in 2019 addressed cosmetology licensing requirements. Laws 2019, Chapter 96 exempts persons who shampoo, condition, dry or style hair from cosmetology licensing requirements and regulations, however the person must complete a class on sanitation, infection protection and law review offered by the Board. Laws 2019, Chapter 109 exempts participants in an apprenticeship program in cosmetology from licensing and regulation if the apprentice works with a mentor in a Board-licensed establishment. The measure establishes requirements to qualify as a mentor and outlines licensing qualifications for persons who complete an apprenticeship program in cosmetology.
