Barber Board Reinstates Straight Razor Shave Requirement
Per S.C. Code of Law 40-1-70 Section 2a, Powers and Duties of Boards of Professions and Occupations Regulations, the S.C. Board of Barber Examiners voted unanimously at its April 8, 2013, meeting to reinstate the "straight razor shave" as a part of the practical examination phase of testing for all examining applicants for licensure, including Registered Barbers and Master Hair Care Specialist. This will be effective January 1, 2014.
Barber Board Inspectors will be conducting random checks of permit records for barber school and on-the-job training students. Please make sure that your records are in compliance.
