STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation provides additional options for becoming a
nail technician or an esthetician by allowing licensed
cosmetology instructors to provide the training required for
Cosmetology instructors can now train cosmetologists in the
three areas of hair styling, nail care and skin care (2
years/4000 hours), but cannot train those who want the simpler
single license as a nail technician (300 hours) or esthetician
The legislation requires twice the number of hours than
required at a school, requires that the trainee be under the
direct, personal supervision of the instructor, and requires
that the salon have one lice:nsed specialist for each trainee
