Personal beauty service is recognized as a necessity by most people today, and performance of this service can be satisfactory rendered only by operators who possess the skills and knowledge of the trade and who are adept at social courtesies.  A state license is required for the practice of beauty culture, and a formal examination must be passed before this license can be obtained. State registration is required for trainees who, by their registration, become apprentices for the required 1500 clock hours of study of physiology, chemistry, math, and other technical information pertaining to the trade.  The laboratory and classroom work is supplemented by training and practical experience in accepted practices relative to the hair, scalp, skin, and nails.
