Major Rules Overhaul: The Board is getting ready to adopt massive changes that will affect every cosmetologist, esthetician, nail technician, salon manager, school manager, instructor, salon and school. See the Dual Notice of Intent to Adopt Rules, the Rules Draft, and the explanation of all the changes (SONAR).
Mobile Salons: We now have a working draft of possible rules for mobile salons.
Advanced Practice Esthetics: In 2018, the Board can begin issuing advanced practice esthetician licenses, advanced practice esthetician salon manager licenses, and advanced practice salon licenses. The Board is beginning to think about what the rules for training, grandfathering, testing, licensing, and operation should be for the licenses. The Request for Comments explains this, and tells you how to send in your ideas.
