The Rocky Mountains, the ever-changing weather, and the outdoor-loving culture make Colorado a popular location for aspiring cosmetologists to get their start. The requirements to take the Colorado cosmetology exam and, eventually, obtain a cosmetology license are relatively straightforward.
While the requirements for obtaining a cosmetology license are summarized below, you should check with the Colorado Board of Cosmetology before you begin because these requirements can change. A quick call to the Board of Cosmetology, or a quick check to the website can ensure that you have fulfilled the current requirements to take the cosmetology exam and obtain your license.
COSMETOLOGIST: 1800 (60 credits)
BARBER: 1500 (50 credits)
COSMETICIAN: 600 (20 credits)
MANICURIST: 600 (20 credits)
HAIRSTYLIST: 1200 (40 credits)
Applicants for licensure must be at least 16 years of age. Home salons and mobile salons allowed. Home salons and Mobile salons allowed.
Colorado does not have reciprocity, we have endorsement and everyone who holds an active license in another state may apply for endorsement and everyone is reviewed on an individual basis.
You Should Take Our Cosmetology Exam Prep Course!
Since so much is riding on the written cosmetology exam, you should consider taking a course that prepares you to take the exam. But beware! Most courses do little more than barrage you with questions that, frequently, are not even relevant to the tested materials. These courses hurt your chances at passing the written cosmetology exam (and, therefore earning your cosmetology license) because they: a) fail to review relevant material; b) mislead you into studying material that is not tested on the written exam; c) are discouraging because they present material that is seldom, if ever, tested; and d) fail to present the material in a medium that is conducive to learning!
