Renewal/Restoration Notice

The Kentucky Board of Cosmetology has announced that all licenses set to expire on July 31, 2024, must be renewed between July 1st and July 31st. If not renewed by the expiration date, restoration fees will be assessed.

Steps to Renew/Restore Your License

To renew or restore your license, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Kentucky Board of Cosmetology website: Go to www.kbc.ky.gov and select “Licensure.” Follow the instructions provided on the website.
  2. Prepare your documents: You will need the following:
    • Electronic copies of the required documents, including a 2×2 passport-style photo, government-issued ID, and any necessary felony support documents.
    • Ensure your contact email is current and update it within 10 days of any change.
    • Keep your employment details up to date, updating them within 30 days of any change.
  3. Log in to your account: If you renewed last year, log in and renew your license under “license actions.” If you are renewing for the first time, use the registration code to associate your license record for renewal.

To streamline this process, ensure you have access to Kentucky’s newly rolled-out system at https://kyboc.mylicenseone.com. If you haven’t done so yet, log in to your account. If you don’t have an account, create one now and email [email protected], informing them that you are a licensee. Request the necessary information and code to add your license to your account and ask for instructions on how to do so. It is crucial to have a functional account by now and to log in successfully to prepare for next week’s renewal.

License/Permit Card

Upon successful completion of the renewal/restoration process, a Notification of Renewal will be emailed to you. This serves as verification until your final copies arrive.
