TDLR Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Besides applying for my license renewal, is there anything else I need to do?

Make sure the continuing education requirement has been completed for renewal of the license.

To renew an operator license or an esthetician, manicurist, esthetician/manicurist or eyelash extension specialty license, or a hair weaving, hair braiding, wig, or shampoo/conditioning specialty certificate that expires on or after September 1, 2012 , a total of 4 hours of continuing education through department-approved courses must be completed. The continuing education hours must include 1 hour of sanitation, and 3 hours of any topic listed in Section 83.120 of the Cosmetology Administrative Rules .

For a timely or a late renewal, a licensee must complete the required continuing education hours within the two year period immediately preceding the renewal date.
