Becoming a licensed barber in New Haven required verified completion of a state approved barber program, which includes at least 1,500 hours of study, and at least 150 of those must be dedicated to theoretical content. After your degree is completed, you must pass the Connecticut Barber Examination. When you pass your exam you are ready to apply for your barber license. The Department of Public Health will process your application and approve you for your license once your application is validated.
You Could Lose Your License
Once you have your license you may begin working. You must keep up with your license in order to continue practicing. This means renewing your license every two years and following the requirements established by the Department of Public Health. If the department believes you have violated the requirements of your license, you may lose your license. A few reasons your license could be revoked are:
Failure to comply with health code. Customers expect safe and sanitary conditions when they come in for your services. Failure to comply with health code could be dangerous to you and your customers.
Fraud. Conducting honest business is an essential element of maintaining your license. Failure to do so could result in a lost license and possible criminal charges.
Acting outside the scope of license. Every person providing barber services must have their own license. Working under another license or without a license is prohibited.
