Booth, Salon and School Applications

Cosmetology Booth Rental License - Effective immediately, booth renters do not need to apply for or renew a booth rental license. All active cosmetology individual license holders are now authorized to rent booths as long as their cosmetology license is not expired. TDLR will no longer issue separate booth rental licenses. This change does not affect the relationship between salon owners and employees/independent contractors. Employees continue to be employees and independent contractors continue to be independent contractors. Salon owners must also continue to maintain a list of all independent contractors renting a booth in their salon.
