Cosmetology License Requirements in Arkansas

Cosmetology is a career path of feel-good glamour, one that allows you to interact with people and help them feel great about their appearance. If you're reading this, you probably already know that beauty school is an integral step in becoming a cosmetologist. What you may not be aware of is that each U.S. state has its own unique license offerings and requirements. Arkansas cosmetology schools offers four cosmetology licenses: cosmetologist, esthetician, electrologist, and manicurist. Listed below are the specific hour requirements for each.

  • Cosmetologist: 1500 hours of class
  • Esthetician: 600 hours of class
  • Electrologist: 600 hours of class (or 350 hours with a valid cosmetology license)
  • Manicurist: 750 clock hours or 600 credit hours
