National Coalition of Estheticians, Manufacturers/Distributors & Associations




In an effort to consolidate regulating boards in Oklahoma, Senator Jolly & Shannon of the House - sponsored a bill creating the Office of Business and Professional Facilitation within the Department of Commerce which "shall regulate and have supervisory authority over all employees and subjects of licensure, registration, certification and accreditation." That includes 40 different trades - including licensing of estheticians, cosmetologists and the other 9 licenses overseen by the Oklahoma State Board of Cosmetology. See SB 772 here 


Your voice needs to be heard with the following message:


I am a licensed esthetician (or license{s} you hold) in Oklahoma, and I am concerned that without our State Board of Cosmetology overseeing licensees, that it will be detrimental to my skin care business. There is a growing problem nationwide with human trafficking and fraudulent activities related to licensing in cosmetology. The only way to keep those activities to a minimum in the State of Oklahoma is through control and issuance of our license, and to maintain our current board. Our board issues over 25,000 individual licenses, approximately 5,500 facility licenses, and oversee 89 schools. It is estimated that approximately 25% of Oklahoma licensees are of foreign nationality, and that number is growing.


It is doubtful that any other "trade" listed in in SB 772 deals with this number of immigrants or licensees, into their professional field. I join the National Coalition of Estheticians, Manufacturers/Distributors & Asssociations (NCEA) and I DO NOT SUPPORT SB 772.  To take away our licensing services would be detrimental to the health, safety and general welfare of the People of the State of Oklahoma. Without direct regulatory board oversight, my livelihood will be threatened with undocumented, unlicensed workers.


Leave the Oklahoma State Board of Cosmetology alone as a self-sustaining regulatory board.
