Beauty and Barber

Support For Beauty & Barber Professionals

Chicago Attorneys Representing Beauty & Barber Professionals Before IDFPRWhether you are a barber, cosmetologist, esthetician, or nail technician, it’s important to know that the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) has strict standards for beauty and barber professionals. At Zimmerman Law Offices, we take your professional license very seriously. Whether you are interested in licensure for cosmetology, esthetics, nail technology, salon, hair braiding, or other beauty and barber professions, we can provide assistance with your application. We can also provide legal assistance should you need to defend your career and license.

Applying For Your License

You can obtain a beauty or barber license by passing an examination and satisfying other requirements imposed by the IDFPR. Or, you can obtain a license by endorsement if you are currently licensed in your profession in another state. The attorneys at Zimmerman Law Offices are experienced in assisting people to obtain licensure in the beauty and barber professions.

Fight To Protect Your License

As a professional barber, cosmetologist or other beauty professional, you have made a significant investment in your career and in developing your skills. If your license is at stake, you need an attorney on your side with experience to handle your case. If you are facing accusations that threaten your current license, don’t fight your case alone. Since 1996, Attorney Thomas Zimmerman has been helping beauty and barber professionals defend themselves against complaints.

Cosmetology School Failed to Report Withdrawal of Accreditation

The National Accrediting Commission of Career & Sciences (NACCAS) withdrew its accreditation from a cosmetology school, put the school on probation, and imposed reporting financial requirements on the school. The cosmetology school did not notify the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) of the adverse change in the school’s accreditation. At an informal disciplinary conference, we demonstrated that the cosmetology school subsequently came into compliance with all of the NACCAS standards, and the school’s failure to inform the IDFPR was an oversight. The school’s NACCAS accreditation was reinstated, and the IDFPR closed its investigation with no discipline imposed on the cosmetology school’s license.
