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 find your Washington cosmetology program?

Before being eligible to apply for your cosmetology license, you must meet the educational requirements established by the Washington State Department of Licensing. The minimum required state hours vary by program, so it is essential for you to make sure that your school meets the following classroom hours.

  • Cosmetologist: 1,600 hours of school training or 2,000 hours of apprenticeship training.
  • Barber: 1,000 hours of school training or 1,200 hours of apprenticeship training.
  • Esthetician: 600 hours of school training or 800 hours of apprenticeship training.
  • Manicurist: 600 hours of school training or 800 hours of apprenticeship training.

In 2014, Washington also added a license for Master Estheticians to include advanced theories, and spa body treatments.  This program will require you complete 1,200 hours from a board approved school or 1,400 hours in the apprenticeship role.

You may also choose to sit for your practical and written exams through apprenticeship training.  This requires that you complete 200 hours more than the required classroom training, 400 more for cosmetology, under supervision of a licensed professional.  You must renew your cosmetology license every two years from the date of issue. Continuing education classes are not required in the state of Washington, but are always recommended to ensure you stay updated on the latest industry trends.

If you are interested in becoming a licensed massage therapist, the Washington State Department of Health will be your licensing board and you must complete the following:

  • 500 training hours
  • 4 contact hours of training in HIV-AIDS
  • Certification in first aid from the American Red Cross
