Any person who desires to practice barbering in this state shall file with the Executive Secretary of the State Board of Barber Examiners a written application, duly notarized, together with two (2) identical signed passport photographs and satisfactory proof of identification, social security registration and education.

Upon receiving the application and reciprocity fee the applicant will be interviewed, before a license will be issued.

Any person applying for reciprocity must have at least one thousand five hundred (1,500) hours of training and an unrevoked or unexpired license issued by the proper authorities of another state.

All documents submitted for the purpose of complying with the requirements for examination shall be original copies and translated in the English language. The application must be accompanied with a money order for the reciprocity fee and examination fee.
