More About the Connecticut Cosmetology Exam
The Cosmetology profession is an exciting and growing field that offers aspiring cosmetologists like you countless opportunities to grow. In the State of Connecticut, the Connecticut State Board for Barbers and Hairdressers is responsible for maintaining the professionalism of the industry. The Connecticut State Board for Barbers and Hairdressers has partnered with Prometric, Inc. to administer their written exam.
In order to receive a cosmetology license, you will need to successfully complete 1,500 hours education in an approved school, complete at least an 8th grade education or the appropriate equivalent, and pass the written exam.
To take the written exam, you will register with Prometric and submit a $60 fee. In 2011, students in Connecticut have seven dates to choose from to take the exam. The exam contains 100 multiple-choice questions that cover a wide variety of topics, including general concepts, applied anatomy, physical services, chemical services, and hair styling and shaping.
You must score at least 70 percent in order to pass the written exam. Within 10 days, you will be notified of your score. Students who pass the exam will then be asked to submit the license application to the Connecticut Department of Public Health for approval.
