Cosmetology License Requirements in Ohio

If you are interested in the world of skin care, hair design, nails, or African-American hair styling techniques, you may wish to pursue a new career by training at an Ohio cosmetology school. You must meet specific requirements before becoming a licensed cosmetologist, esthetician, hair designer, manicurist, or natural hair stylist.

Earning a license in Ohio requries that you pass an examination, and a popular route to exam eligibility involves graduating from a specialized program at one of Ohio's beauty or cosmetology schools. Mandatory classroom hours for completing a program depend on your ultimate career goal:

  • Cosmetologist: 1,500 hours of class
  • Hair Designer: 1,200 hours of class
  • Esthetician: 600 hours of class
  • Natural Hair Stylist: 450 hours of class
  • Manicurist: 200 hours of class

Why take Classes at Beauty School?

There are apprenticeship programs available to help you become eligible for the licensing examination; however, beauty and cosmetology schools offer several more advantages. Beauty school programs take far less time to complete, and they concentrate on both the theoretical knowledge behind nail, hair, and skin care and hands-on practice. This combination of training methods provides a great chance for success in passing the examination. If you're serious about starting a new career in cosmetology, explore the programs offered by Ohio's cosmetology schools.
