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.
