Wyoming’s hairdressing license can be a value to obtain by anyone who loves to work with hair and make a career out of it. One can obtain such a license through beauty school. Beauty school is where students learn hair cutting and styling techniques. Students will develop their skills with practical experience with wigs and eventually, work with clients. Beauty school prepares students for a professional career as a hairdresser and equips them with the knowledge and experience to be successful. Wyoming has certain state requirements needed to receive a Wyoming hairdressing license.
Wyoming requires students to have 2,000 beauty school hours that are aquired from a cosmetology school, which has to be Wyoming Board approved. The state of Wyoming also requires students to be at least 16 years of age with an education of at least grade 10.
Wyoming licenses are only valid for 2 years. After your license expires, you will have to pay a fee to the cosmetology board and submit a renewal application.
Wyoming grants reciprocity to all applicants if they have passed the practical exam as well as the written exam. If they do not have enough hours, one year of work experience will make up for it.
A hair stylist in the state of Wyoming typically makes about $31,000 a year. One can expand this number by developing a steady flow of clients and networking with high paying clients.
