Barbering and Cosmetology Licensing - Purpose
The State Barbering and Cosmetology Licensing was established to protect the public through the regulation of the practice of barbering and cosmetology in the State of Maine.
The primary responsibility of the Program is to regulate the practice of aesthetics, barbering, limited barbering, cosmetology, and nail technology by qualifying applicants for licensure. The Program investigates allegations of noncompliance and acts on these complaints by imposing discipline when necessary. The Program creates safety and sanitation rules and enforces these rules through regular inspections of licensed establishments and consumer complaints. In addition, the Program licenses and regulates schools that offer and provide professional practice courses in the field of aesthetics, barbering, limited barbering, cosmetology and nail technology.
