The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs will hold a public hearing to receive public  
comments on proposed changes to the Barbers - General Rules rule set.  
The proposed revisions to the rules add definitions for terms used in the rule set and add the  
requirements for licensure by endorsement and relicensure; establish the criteria to be used by a barber  
college to determine whether instruction completed at a Michigan-licensed cosmetology school is  
substantially similar instruction to course work required in a barber student’s program of instruction; and  
require the school to notify the department of the substantially similar hours the student was permitted to  
substitute in the student’s barber college curriculum. Revisions were also made to the barber training  
curriculum for clarity.
