The Board shall issue a license to any person who is at least 18 years of age and of good moral character and temperate habits, who has a current license or certificate of registration as a practicing barber of another state or other board recognizing authority, which has substantially the same requirements for licensing or registering barbers as are required of KRS Chapter 317.

For an applicant coming from a state or other board recognizing authority without substantially the same requirements, they shall have been a registered barber and worked for 3 years.

If you are coming to Kentucky from another state and meet these requirements please call the board office and we will gladly send you all the information that you will need to apply for approval by the board to become a Kentucky Barber.
