Sacramento, CA -- Effective January 1, 2008, the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology (BBC) will have a change in fee requirements. Pursuant to the California Code of Regulations (CCR), Section 998, there is an addition of an application/examination fee to be added to the initial license fee when applying for a barber, cosmetologist, esthetician, manicurist, or electrologist license in California. The application/examination fee will be $75.00 for all personal license types. Candidates will also be required to submit the initial license fee with their application.
