House Bill 291 Signed Into Law
During the last session of the North Carolina General Assembly a bill was passed and signed into law by Governor Bev Perdue to create a new licensure for natural hair care specialists. This new license will require 300 hours of training at an approved cosmetic art/natural hair care school. Once the law goes into effect July, 2010 current natural hair care practitioners will have 1 year to obtain licensure by passing the state board examination developed by NIC, the Board's testing provider. Natural hair care salons will also be required to become licensed within the year.
How to become licensed as a natural hair care stylist as of July 1, 2010
Pass the written and practical examinations with a score of 75 or higher and file the license application confirming experience as a natural hair care specialist, pay $20 license fee to the NC Board of Cosmetic Art Examiners.
