The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs will hold a public hearing to receive public
comments on proposed changes to the Cosmetology -- General Rules rule set.
The proposed rules will inform applicants of the requirements for licensure, relicensure, and licensure by
endorsement, update curriculum, operational standards, and sanitation standards, and make revisions
for clarity. The rule pertaining to branch facility licensure will be amended to sunset the license because
it is not authorized by statute. Additionally, new rules will be added to comply with statutory changes,
such as providing the requirements for the operation of mobile salons and setting the criteria to permit
some hours of instruction earned by a Michigan-licensed barber in a state barber college to be
substituted for required courses in a cosmetology student’s educational program.
By authority conferred on the department and the board by MCL 339.205, 339.308, 339.1203, 339.1205,
