Board of Cosmetology

 

The Michigan Board of Cosmetology was created under Article 12 of Public Act 299 of 1980, as amended, to license and regulate the practice of cosmetology in Michigan. Article 12 defines cosmetology as one of the following services or a combination of the following services: Hair care services, skin care services, manicuring services, and electrology. The members of the cosmetology industry who are licensed by the department include schools of cosmetology, both public and private, beauty shops, cosmetologists, manicurists, cosmetology instructors, electrologists, estheticians (skin care specialists), and natural hair culturists (braiders).

The Board consists of nine members: five cosmetologists that have been actively engaged in the practice for at least three years, one person who is actively engaged in teaching cosmetology for at least three years, and three members of the general public. Each board member serves four-year terms.
