You will need to obtain your cosmetologist’s license, plus earn an additional 600+ hours of professional training hours to qualify. Although Missouri does not require continuing education courses, they can really help you stay current with regulations and the hottest new trends. You will need to renew your license by September 30th of odd-numbered years, and pay a $30 fee to the Missouri Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners.
