Historic Advancements in Kentucky’s Beauty Industry: Multi-Language Licensing Exams Approved

Louisville Beauty Academy Brings You the Latest News

The Kentucky State Board of Cosmetology has recently approved a historic change that promises to transform the beauty industry in the state. In a pivotal board meeting on June 10, 2024, the newly appointed board members voted to implement multi-language licensing exams. This decision is particularly significant for the immigrant community, including the estimated 30,000+ Latino immigrants who have moved to Kentucky in the past few years (2022-2024). The implementation date for these exams is yet to be decided, but many speculate it will be around September 2024.

A Milestone for Immigrant Communities

This change will tremendously aid the licensing process for immigrants of all races, including Vietnamese, Burmese, Korean, Ukrainian, Cambodian, and Latino communities. Louisville Beauty Academy has been passionately helping these communities with love and care, ensuring they receive the support needed to achieve their professional goals.

Efforts Towards Inclusivity and Transparency

The approval of multi-language exams is one of the most inclusive decisions made by the new board members, appointed by Governor Andy Beshear. This move reflects the board’s commitment to transparency and inclusivity within the beauty industry.

Importance of Documentation and Professionalism

While these efforts are commendable, it is crucial for all licensees and students to remember that board members and state officials are part-time participants in this effort, meeting only once a month. The staff of the Kentucky State Board of Cosmetology handles all cases on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, it is highly important to maintain all documents, communication proofs, and track records with timestamps and dates for your protection.
