School Accreditation

You must attend a school that is approved by your state to provide training in the discipline you want to practice. Check with the school and the state board to be sure that your program of study will prepare you for any applicable state licensure.

The Connecticut Department of Public Health is the regulating board for a number of cosmetology professions, including, cosmetologists, barbers, and massage therapists.  Before applying for your cosmetology license, you must be at least 16 years old and have completed the following required training hours from a board approved school.

  • Cosmetologist: 1500 hours of training
  • Barber: 1500 hours of training
  • Massage Therapist: 500 hours of training

If you wish to pursue a career as an electrologist, you will need to complete 600 hours of advanced education from a school that has been approved by the Connecticut Board of Examiners for Electrologists and have successfully passed the IBEC/AEA licensure certificate.

Connecticut is on of few states that currently does not have education requirements or licensing regulations for manicurists, estheticians or makeup artists, although it is still urged.

Your cosmetology license is valid for two years and expires by the last day of your birth month. Reciprocity is usually granted for out-of-state applicants if their home state required the same number of training hours or more than is required in Connecticut. However, the state cosmetology licensing board reserves the right to evaluate each applicant on a case-by-case basis.
