Kentucky Reduces School Hours for Nail License

Today, Kentucky’s governor signed a bill into law reducing the course of instruction for nail technicians from 600 to 450 hours. The new regulations also change the minimum age for a cosmetology license from 16 to 18; establish a 750-hour course of instruction for licensure as an esthetician; lower the hours required for instructor licensure from 1,000 to 750; add a requirement that instructors must hold a current cosmetologist, esthetician, or nail technician license for at least one year; and permit threading, eyelash artistry, and makeup artistry in a salon with a permit.
