Once you earn passing scores on these tests and pay a $45 licensing fee, you may become a licensed cosmetologist.

Education Details

You may be able to complete your beauty education in less than one year, and in that year, you can master dozens of important skills. You do have to master theory and terminology, but it's even more important to have the hands-on skills needed in a salon. That's why the Kansas Board of Cosmetology sets specific training requirements for accredited beauty schools.
