A degree from a State Board of Education approved cosmetology school is required to become a licensed cosmetologist in New Haven. This includes over 1,500 hours of training and study. Once a degree is completed, you must pass a written exam administered by the Department of Public Health. After you have met these requirements, you may apply for your license.
When You Risk Losing Your License

Unprofessional behavior. When providing your services to the public it is important that you are professional. Clients may report feeling uncomfortable or unsafe to the department.
Failure to keep proper records. Up to date and correct records are required in any business. Failure to comply with regulations could lead to a revoked license.
