Industry Bulletin 3/20/2013- Licensee in Charge of Establishment
The Board of Barbering and Cosmetology (Board) would like to inform its licensee’s that an owner of a salon or barbershop who holds an establishment license is a licensee qualified to be in charge of an establishment pursuant to Business and Professions Code section 7348 despite not personally holding either a barber, cosmetology, manicurist, esthetic or electrolysis license.
Business and Professions Code section 7348 states:
“An establishment shall at all times be in the charge of a person licensed pursuant to this chapter except an apprentice.”
Therefore, all establishments must have a licensee in charge. The licensee in charge can be an Establishment Owner, Cosmetologist, Barber, Esthetician, Manicurist or an Electrologist.
