Due to House Bill 1560, Texas proposed new barber and cosmetology rules that decrease instructor licensing fees.
House Bill 1560 passed this legislative session and Section 3 of the bill eliminates the barber and cosmetology instructor license. Beginning September 1, 2021, an instructor license is no longer required to teach barbering or cosmetology in a licensed school.
Starting on March 8, 2021, candidates for the Cosmetology written examinations will be able to choose to take a written examination at one of 22 PSI site locations across Texas or take an examination through a virtual online process offered by PSI.
