Office of the Revisor of Statutes


A licensee with an active or expired Minnesota practitioner license who has ceased all practice of cosmetology may apply for a retired license that does not allow any practice of cosmetology as defined in Minnesota Statutes, section 155A.23, subdivision 3. The board must void any active license when a retired license is issued for the remainder of the license cycle. If the practitioner's license is expired, the applicant must pay the renewal and late fees required by Minnesota Statutes, section 155A.25.


Retired licenses expire on the three-year license cycle and may be renewed by paying the fees required by Minnesota Statutes, section 155A.25.


A person with a retired license who wishes to obtain an active practitioner license must apply to renew the original expired practitioner license under the terms of this chapter as if no retired license was issued. If the retired license has not expired, no new renewal fee is required.
