Welcome

The Kentucky Board of Barbering is an agency of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  The Board consists of five Board members appointed by the Governor of the Commonwealth.  Four of these members are barbers, while one is a public member.

The mission of the Board is to protect the health and safety of the Commonwealth of Kentucky as well as to protect the public against misrepresentation, deceit or fraud in the practice of teaching and/or barbering, by having complete supervision over the administration relating to barbers, barber shops, barber schools, the teaching of barbering, and barber apprenticeship.

New Check Policy

At their Board Meeting on March 10, 2014, the Board made a motion to no longer accept personal or business checks as a form of payment.  When mailing in applications to the Board Office, you will need to provide either a money order or cashier's check.  By making this change the processing time of the licenses will be much quicker.  There will no longer by any need to hold the licenses for 10 working days for clearence.  Once the licenses are processed they will be mailed out immediately.
