Pennsylvania Cosmetology and Barber

This page contains specific information about testing for a Pennsylvania Cosmetology and Barber license. Register for your next exam, find test information, or download handbooks/applications/forms from this page.

Effective April 1, 2013

All candidates scheduled for a practical exam will be required to dress appropriately (business casual attire is recommended) and to wear a salon smock or apron during the examination. If the smock or apron has a school name on it, candidates are asked to be sure the school name covered prior to coming to the test site and remain covered during the examination. If a candidate does not bring a smock or apron with them on the day of testing, they will not be allowed to test and will be required to reschedule their practical examination for a later date.
