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