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.

Ready to search for your beauty school program?

In the state of Virginia, the Virginia State of Board of Cosmetology offers eight cosmetology licenses. Every license requires that you complete its established minimum training hours at an approved institution to gain eligibility to take the board examination. The available licenses include:

  • Cosmetologist: 1,500 training hours
  • Cosmetology Instructor: current cosmetology license and at least 12 months student instruction.
  • Barber: 1,500 training hours
  • Nail Technician: 150 training hours
  • Esthetician: 600 training hours
  • Master Esthetician: 1,200 training hours
  • Permanent Makeup Artist: 1,500 training hours
  • Massage Therapist: 500 training hours

If your beauty program doesn’t meet the hour requirements needed to become licensed as a cosmetologist, barber, or nail technician, Virginia does offer a unique opportunity.  You will be able to apply to sit for your board exam if you can prove completion of a roughly equivalent cosmetology program as well as documentation of six months of work experience.  Additionally, you can apply for licensure through an apprenticeship in cosmetology, barbering and as a nail tech.  For this, you will need to complete double the hours as your educational training for cosmetology and barbering and 2,000 hours as a manicurist.  You must renew your cosmetology license every two years. Permanent makeup artists must complete at least five hours of safety and sanitation continuing education to renew their licenses.

If you are interested in becoming a licensed massage therapist, the Virginia Board of Nursing will be your regulating board, and you will need to compete 500 hours from a board approved school.
