State Board of Barber Examiners
John E. Payne, Jr., Chair 

Mission Statement:
The State Board of Barber Examiners regulates the licensure and practice of the barbering profession in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  The Board has jurisdiction over the procedures for obtaining a license to become a barber, manager-barber or barber-teacher.  Through its agents, the Board inspects, approves and registers all barber shops and schools of barbering and prescribes the sanitary requirements for the individual establishment. By performing these functions, the Board protects the public from gross incompetence, unethical or dishonest practice or conduct, and the spread of contagious and infectious diseases.
