Important:  Coming Soon! New eLicense System

The Cosmetology and Barber Board will soon be transitioning to the state’s new online licensing system called “eLicense Ohio”. On April 23, 2018, this new system will go live.

Between April 13, - April 22, 2018, the board will be unable to process applications received due to a system outage for the change-over.  Therefore, applications received at the board office during this timeframe will be returned to the sender.  Beginning April 23rd all application types will be required to be submitted through the new eLicense online system.

NOTE:  Examination applications received after April 2, 2018 will be returned and the applicant will be required to apply through the new online system.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Certain Forms and Applications not available until transition to eLicense 3.0 has been completed
