Statement from the Cosmetology Examining Board, which was issued within the last five years, states “the application of lash extensions is not included in the definition of barbering or the definition of cosmetology. Accordingly, it is not regulated by the Department of Safety and Professional Services or the Cosmetology Examining Board.” However, at a meeting on 6/22/15 motion carried to have legal counsel review the Board’s statutory authority to draft rules regarding eyelash extensions, and request the administrative rule coordinator to draft a Scope Statement regarding eyelash extensions for consideration at the next meeting. So, although there are not currently rules regarding eyelash extensions, there probably will be soon.
